Business Transactions

As we continue to develop our business, we may undergo a business transition such as acquiring another company, merging with an existing company, or selling a portion of our assets or business. In such transitions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. In the unlikely event that we, or substantially all of our assets, are acquired or enter a court proceeding, you acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that your Personal Data can continue to be used as set forth in this Privacy Notice.

Our Cookie Notice

What Are Cookies and Pixel Tags?

“Cookies” are small strings of text or computer code stored locally on your device that allow us, ad networks, and our third-party service providers, to identify your browser and/or device as you browse the Internet. Cookies can be placed, read, and/or written to by our servers, or other websites or services that recognise a particular cookie, which allows the website to “remember” or “recognise” a particular browser or device and, in some cases, store information about that browser or device.

Certain types of cookies or cookie-like functionality may be placed or activated through browser add-ons, including, but not limited to Google. While these cookies are stored differently, their functionality and purpose are generally like other cookies.

Cookies are often used in conjunction with “pixel tags” (also known as “web beacons” or “clear gifs”). Pixel tags are small images that we, our analytics providers, advertisers, and other third parties can use to interact with cookies and other tracking technologies. For example, we use pixel tags to evaluate the effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns by determining whether you open and interact with the content in our promotional emails.

For more information about cookies, please see www.allaboutcookies.org.

How Long Are Cookies Stored On our System?

Session Cookies. “Session cookies” are stored for the duration of a browser session; when you close the browser, the cookie is deleted.

Persistent Cookies. “Persistent cookies” are stored for a pre-set amount of time (often between 90 days and two years, depending on the application) and are typically not deleted when a browser session is closed.

Your choices may affect whether we use session or persistent cookies for a particular application.

What Cookies Do We Use, and Why?

to allow you to browse the Services and access certain pages. Necessary cookies are required for the Services (or certain functionality on the Services) to work properly, and we do not use these cookies to collect personal information about you.

Disabling or removing these cookies may prevent the Services, or certain functionality on the Services, from working correctly or at all.

Performance Cookies. These are Session Cookies and we use them to collect information about how our users use and interact with the Services, such as what pages are visited most often, how the Services are used and function, and how users navigate the Services. We use this information to improve the Services and their content. These cookies only collect aggregate information about the use of the Services, and thus do not collect information that can be used to identify you personally.

Functionality Cookies. These are Persistent Cookies and we use them to remember information that you have provided or choices you have made on the Services, such as saving your logged-in status, site preferences, or the contents of your shopping cart. This allows us to provide a more personalized and convenient browsing experience.

Targeting or Advertising Cookies. These are Session Cookies. We allow third party advertisers, including advertising providers and ad networks, to place and/or activate cookies, pixel tags, and/or other tracking technologies designed to enable advertising on your device and deliver it to you across the Internet.

The Services may collect information and data about your activities online, both on the Services and across third-party pages or platforms that participate in the ad network. This process helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts and deliver advertising to you. These ad networks, in connection with cookies, pixel tags, and other tracking technologies: (i) help deliver online behavioural advertisements, either by us, our affiliates, or third parties; (ii) may prevent you from seeing the same advertisements too many times; and (iii) help us, our service providers, and/or our other partners (as further described below) understand the effectiveness of the advertisements that have been delivered to you.

Third-Party Functionality. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that advertisers and third-party sites may use, and the information practices of those advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by our Privacy Notice or this Cookie Notice.

For more information about how third parties collect and use information about your activities, please review their applicable Terms of Use and Privacy Policies.
