In addition, such disclosure of data allows us to perform cross-device linking (i.e. allowing us to link two or more devices that are believed to belong to the same user for tailored advertising purposes).
Cookies are small text files containing strings of information that are locally stored on your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognize you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (e.g. by remembering your user preferences).
Check the “Help” menu of your browser or operating system to learn how to adjust your tracking settings or cookie preferences. Note that our system may not recognize some or all “Do Not Track” headers from browsers.
Children. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from individuals under the age of 21.
How we Protect Information
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the data submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
