Cookies, Web Beacons, and Similar Technologies. “Cookies” are pieces of information that may be placed on your computer’s browser or your device by a website or service to store your preferences, for the purpose of facilitating and enhancing your communication and interaction with that website or service or with other websites or services. Many websites, including the Sites, may also use Flash cookies, or locally shared objects (“LSOs”), that operate similarly to browser cookies. Company, or our partners, may also use “web beacons,” clear GIFs or similar technologies, pieces of information placed on a service or email to track and collect information about user behavior, for example by counting the number of visitors to a web page, delivering a cookie to a user’s browser or tracking open rates, clicks and forwards.

Company, or our partners, may use cookies and similar technologies to customize your visit to or use of the Sites, or to help us to enhance or improve the Service, for example by storing your password or delivering relevant advertising to you when you use the Service. Company may also work with our partners to use such technologies to help them provide advertisements to you when you visit other websites or applications, and to research and analyze how the Service is used, and user response to and interaction with advertisements.

Company may work with our partners to synchronize unique, non-personally identifiable identifiers in order to match our identifiers with those used by our partners. These companies may collect and use non-personally identifiable information during your visits to or use of the Service and other websites and apps. The use of cookies, web beacons and similar technologies by such partners and advertisers is not in our control and is subject to the privacy policies of such third parties.

By accessing or using the Service, you consent to Company and our partners using the cookies and other technologies described in this Privacy Policy, and similar technologies that may be developed in the future, to track your activities and use of the Service, including in emails we may send to you.

You may be able to set your browser to disable cookies or LSOs, or to refuse certain types of cookies or warn you before accepting cookies. And, LSOs using Adobe Flash can be managed using Flash management tools on the Adobe website. However, doing so may mean that certain parts of the Service may not work for you. Some partners may use technologies other than cookies to recognize your computer or device or to collect information about your use of the Service or other websites or services, and you may not be able to block use of such technologies. Some browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to websites and online services. Company does not currently take any action or respond to such signals.

We or our partners may use mobile Software Development Kits (“SDKs”) to collect information, such as your IDFA or Android Advertising ID, and other information about how your device interacts with the Service. SDKs allow app developers to enable advertising, collection of data and related services and analytics in apps. We may use this technology to deliver, or to help partners deliver, advertising through the Apps and other mobile applications and browsers based on information associated with your device. Depending on your device, you may be able to reset your device’s advertising identifier by accessing the privacy settings.

California’s "Shine the Light" law, Civil Code section 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California residents asking about practices related to disclosing personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Alternately, businesses may have in place a policy not to disclose personal information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes if the customer has opted-out of such information-sharing. Company has such a policy.
