Non–Personal Information
We, or third–party service providers acting on our behalf, may use cookies or web beacons on our site. A “Cookie” is a text-only pieces of information that a website adds to an individual’s hard drive or other website-browsing equipment for record-keeping purposes.

Certain cookies will be used on the Site regardless of whether you are logged in to your account or not. Like most websites, we use cookies for a variety of purposes in order to improve your online experience, for analytics and for marketing, but specifically we use Cookies on the Website for the following purposes:

Analytical Purposes:
Cookies are used to analyze your use of our website during your visit. For example, through Cookies we can look at aggregate patterns like the average number of pages and the duration of your visit. We can use such analysis to gain insights about how to improve the information and functionality of your experience on our Website.

Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting:
This gives us insight into behavior information relating to visitor age, gender and interests on an anonymous and aggregate level. This will help us to understand browsing behavior to give you a better experience while visiting our sites.

Your Preferences:
At times, we may use Cookies to store certain user preferences on our Website. For example, we may store the recent searches you have performed in a Cookie so that we can allow you to easily repeat those searches when you return to our Website.

Session Cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Website.

Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). When we use session cookies to track the total number of visitors to our Website, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data).

Use the options in your web browser if you do not wish to receive a cookie or if you wish to set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. You can easily delete any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser. You can also use the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.
