Cookies set by a website owner are called “first party cookies.” Cookies set by parties other than a website owner are called “third party cookies” and include cookies set by our service providers or third-party partners. Third-party cookies enable certain features or functionalities, and advertising, to be provided on the Services (e.g., ads, interactive content, social media sharing). The parties that set third party cookies can recognize your device both when the device visits the website in question and also when the device visits other websites that have partnered with the third parties that set the cookies.
Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open on your device and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.

We and our partners (such as advertising and analytics vendors) may use other technologies similar to cookies from time to time, such as web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when you visit our Site or Services. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Site and Service to another, deliver or communicate with cookies, understand if you came to our Site from an online ad displayed on a third-party website, and improve Site performance. These technologies often rely on cookies to function properly, so rejecting cookies can impair their functionality.
We allow services providers (including Google Analytics) or third parties to use tracking technologies on our Site and Services for analytics, advertising, and customer support purposes. These third parties may use their technologies to provide advertising tailored to your interests which may appear on other websites.
