WHAT ARE COOKIES

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your browser by websites that you visit. They are widely used for a variety of purposes including to make websites work or to remember you from one visit to the next.

First-party cookies are directly stored by the website (or domain) you visit. These cookies allow website owners to collect analytics data, remember language settings, and perform other functions that provide a good user experience. An example of a first party cookie is one that is stored on your browser when you visit a site and login. The next time you visit, the website will detect the cookie in your browser, and you will not need to login again.

Third-Party cookies are created by domains that are not the website (or domain) that you are visiting. These are usually used for online-advertising purposes and placed on a website through a script or tag. A third-party cookie is accessible on your browser to any website that loads the third-party server’s code.

THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISING COOKIES & WEB BEACONS

These cookies enable third-party advertisers to track your online activity to deliver targeted online advertising content.

A web beacon, sometimes called a pixel, is a technique used on web pages to unobtrusively (usually invisibly) allow tracking of web page visitors. A web beacon can be implemented for instance as a 1×1 pixel image, a transparent image, or an empty file that is requested together with other resources when a web page is loaded.

Pixels contain a tag that tracks information about each visitor, such as pages they view, actions they took on the page, and any purchases made. To keep track of all these actions, the tracking pixel ties them to the unique IP address of the visitor.

The web beacons used on this website are associated with the Facebook Pixel which tracks conversions or events from Facebook ads. When visitors click on a Facebook ad and are directed to this website, this enables the website to see how they interact with any pages containing the pixel or beacon.

You can opt out of these cookies by deselecting the “marketing” checkbox on your cookie preferences.

You can adjust your browser settings to decline cookies or alert you when a website is attempting to place a cookie on your computer.
