Analytical cookies.

Pixel tags. A pixel tag or web beacon is a small string of software code that represents a graphic image request on a web page or email. Some of the pages on our Sites and e-mail updates may contain these electronic images called pixel tags or web beacons, which are designed to blend into the background of a web page or email. We may use pixel tags can be used for many purposes, including site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising auditing and reporting, and to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.
Mobile identifiers. We and our third-party partners may use mobile identifiers to collect information about your use of the services on mobile devices. Most modern mobile devices (iOS 6, Android 2.3, and Windows 10 and above) provide mobile advertising identifiers, which are randomly-generated alphanumeric codes that are associated with your device. These technologies and other mobile identifiers may be used to monitor how mobile applications are used on a particular device. Most mobile identifiers come with options to reset the identifier and opt out of interest-based advertising.

ONLINE AND INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING
HOW CAN I ADJUST MY BROWSER SETTINGS AND DELETE COOKIES OR MOBILE IDENTIFIERS?
You have the right to object to the use of information collection technologies. If you do not want websites, including our Sites, to store cookies on your computer or mobile device, you can disable or block cookies by adjusting your browser settings. Most cookies expire after a defined period of time or you can delete cookies that have already been stored. Please note that you will have to change your settings for each browser and computer you use. Moreover, such methods will not work with respect to certain non-cookie online tracking technologies.
Please be aware that if you do not want to accept any cookies, we cannot guarantee that our Sites will function properly and we may not be able to offer you our Services.
You can also reset the advertising identifiers on your mobile device in the device settings. iOS users can visit Settings > Privacy > Advertising > Reset Advertising Identifier. Android users can visit Google settings > Ads > Reset advertising ID. These controls work much like deleting cookies in a browser – the device is harder to associate with past activity, but tracking may still occur using the new advertising identifier.

You may opt out of third-party interest-based advertising in web browsers and mobile applications by following the instructions below. Please note that the opt-out will apply only to the specific browser or device from which you opt out, and therefore you will need to opt out separately on all of your browsers and devices. If you delete or reset your cookies or mobile identifiers, change browsers, or use a different device, any opt-out cookie or tool may no longer work and you will need to opt out again.
