TECHNOLOGIES WE USE
Cookies. A cookie is a small data file stored on your browser or device. They may be served by the entity that operates the website you are visiting (“first-party cookies”) or by other companies (“third-party cookies”).
- For example, we partner with third-party analytics providers, like Google, which set cookies when you visit our websites. This helps us understand how you are using our Services so that we can improve them.
Pixels (Clear Gifs/Web Beacons/Web Bugs/Embedded Pixels). These are small images on a web page or in an email. They collect information about your browser or device and can set cookies.
Local Storage. Local storage allows data to be stored locally on your browser or device and includes HTML5 local storage and browser cache.
Software development kits (“SDKs”). SDKs are blocks of code provided by our partners that may be installed in our mobile applications. SDKs help us understand how you interact with our mobile applications and collect certain information about the device and network you use to access the application.
