This information may include unique device identifiers, Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser characteristics, language preferences, operating system details, referring URLs, length of visits, and pages viewed. We may use tools such as cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, web server logs, or other similar technologies to collect details about the services and devices you use to access the sites.
Cookies: A cookie is a unique identifier that is placed and stored on a computer when it is used to visit a website. Cookies may be used for various purposes, including to track user preferences or web pages visited while using a site, to identify the unique number of visitors to a website, and to verify whether or not a visitor is a repeat visitor.
Web Beacons (“Tracking Pixels”): Web beacons are small graphic images, also known as “Internet tags” or “clear gifs” that may be embedded in web pages and email messages. Web beacons may be used to monitor the number of visitors to a website, to track how users navigate a site, or to count the number of emails opened or specific pages or links viewed.
Embedded Scripts: An embedded script is programming code designed to collect information about a user’s interactions with a website. Typically, the script is temporarily downloaded onto a computer from the host website’s server (or the server of a third-party service provider) and is active only while the visitor is connected to the site, then deleted or deactivated after that.
