How we use cookies

A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.

We use cookies for many purposes. We use them to make the ads you see more relevant to you, to count how many visitors we receive to a page (using Google Analytics and/or other similar services) and to help you sign up for our services. We also use cookies to help us improve the performance of our website to provide you with a better user experience. We don't sell the information collected by cookies.

Third-party cookies for advertising

We allow third-party companies like Google to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our website. These companies may use non-personally-identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, the subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that are likely to be of interest for you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit www.networkadvertising.org .

Do Not Track (DNT) browser setting

DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled, sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked, such as by third party ad networks, social networks and analytic companies. Our website currently responds to DNT requests.

Third party cookies

We sometimes embed photos and video content from websites such as Flickr, Albumizr, and YouTube. Pages with this embedded content may present cookies from these websites. Similarly, when you use one of the share buttons on our website, a cookie may be set by the service you have chosen to share content through.
