The Site may use various tools and technologies like cookies and web server logs to collect information automatically on the Site.

The Site or third parties may collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different devices and online properties when you use the Site, and certain automatically collected information may be combined with other information about you, including data obtained from third parties. Cookies, web beacons, and other technologies may be operated on the Site by vendors like Google to collect or receive information about your internet usage, including your use of this Site, and use that information to provide measurement services and target ads. This Site and these vendors may use first-party cookies or other first-party identifiers as well as third-party cookies or other third-party identifiers to deliver advertisements, create a profile of you, measure your interests, detect your demographics, detect your location, and personalize content.
Certain web analytics services, including Google Analytics, may be used on the Site to help understand and analyze how visitors use the Site and to serve ads across the Internet. Google Analytics Advertising Features may also be enabled such as remarketing with analytics, interest-based advertising, demographics and interests reporting, user segment analysis, and impression reporting. For more information on how Google Analytics uses data collected through the Site, visit policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites. You may also be able to opt out of Google Analytics by visiting tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
You may be able to opt out of certain interest-based advertising using the settings on your browser or mobile device. In addition, the following services offer tools that you can use to limit or opt out of interest-based advertising:
- Google: To opt out of Google’s network of interest-based advertising, visit adssettings.google.com.
- Industry organizations: To opt out of interest-based advertising from companies that participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance or Network Advertising Initiative opt-out programs, please visit youradchoices.com/control and optout.networkadvertising.org.
Your opt-out choice may apply only to the browser or device you are using when you opt out, so you should opt out on each of your browsers and devices if you want to disable interest-based advertising for those browsers and devices. If you opt out, you will still receive ads, but they may not be as relevant to you and your interests and your experience on the Site may be degraded. Please note that this Site does not control how third parties manage their opt-out processes.
