D. Cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. A cookie will not include personal information, unless you have volunteered that information. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize pages on our websites, or register for a service, a cookie helps us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved from the cookie file, allowing you to easily use customized features.

Some cookies are necessary to make the Site work properly. These cookies can be disabled, but Our Sites and Services may not work properly. Other types of cookies go towards functionality, personalization, performance or analytics, which are optional.

Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate Our Sites and Services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at Our Site and Services.

Please note: if you opt-out of these targeted advertising cookies, your opt-out will be specific to the web browser or device from which you accessed the opt-out.
