A cookie is a small text file that our Sites save onto your computer or device when you use the Sites that provide us certain information about your activities. Cookies allow the Sites to remember your actions and preferences and recognize you or your browser, along with some information you provided. Web beacons / pixel tags are small graphics on a webpage that monitor your activity when viewing a webpage.

Why do we collect Cookies?  We use Cookies to:

  • make our Sites function properly
  • provide personalized experiences
  • tailor our interactions with you
  • help with our marketing efforts
  • to advertise to you
  • provide us with valuable data and statistics about the usage and effectiveness of our Sites and to help us improve our Sites

How long do Cookies last? A Cookie can either be a "session" Cookie or a "persistent" Cookie. Session Cookies exist only for so long as you are visiting the applicable Sites and are typically deleted when you exit your web browser. Persistent Cookies exist for a set period of time, for example, up to several months or years. Each time you visit our Sites that have implemented a persistent Cookie, the persistent Cookie is renewed and that Cookie will remain active until its predetermined expiration date. You can manually delete persistent Cookies through your browser settings.

First and Third-party Cookies. Cookies may either be "first-party" or "third-party" Cookies. A first-party Cookie allows your web browser to talk to the actual Sites that you are visiting (i.e. the Sites). A third-party Cookie allows your web browser to talk to a third-party website, such as the source of an ad that appears on the website you are visiting or a third-party analytics provider. We may not have control over how a third-party uses information collected through third-party Cookies.

How do you manage Cookies or opt-out? Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can disable this function by changing your browser settings, but disabling cookies may impact your use and enjoyment of the Sites. Not all features or functions of the Sites may work properly if you disable Cookies. You cannot disable all Cookies, such as Cookies that are essential to the functioning of the Sites.

  • Microsoft Advertising (formerly Bing Ads)
  • LinkedIn and LinkedIn Insights

For example, we also may utilize Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, to better understand your use of the Sites. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Sites, what pages they visit and what other websites they used prior to visiting. Google uses the data collected to track and examine the use of our websites, to prepare reports on its activities and share them with other Google services. Google may use the data collected on our website to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. Google's ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. To learn more about how Google uses data, visit Google's Privacy Policy and Google's page on "How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps."

Using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on does not prevent the use of other analytics tools. To learn more about Google Analytics Cookies, visit Google Analytics Cookie Usage on Sites.

These advertising network services use data they collect from multiple sites and sources to target personal content and advertisements to you about our products.

For example, we use Google Ads and Microsoft Advertising to serve ads on our behalf across the internet and on the Sites.
