Definition of Cookies & Why We Use Them

Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer or device (such as a mobile phone or tablet) when you visit a website.

Cookies may generate and store a unique identification number that is tied to your computer or device and the browser you used to access a website. (This identification number keeps your data anonymous.) These cookies help to recognize you has the same user across multiple browsing sessions and/or websites.

Cookies allow third parties, like Google, to analyze our website's performance and provide us with statistics that give us the ability to understand the most popular parts of our website by helping us see which webpages, features and other content visitors access the most and how much time they spend on our site. We study this information to continually improve our website in order to provide you with a better experience and more relevant, useful information.

Cookies also help to identify website visitors in order to serve targeted ads about us and our website when those visitors are on other websites, services or platforms. This is called "retargeting advertising" or "remarketing." We have more information about our use of remarketing in the Targeted Advertising section below.

We use several categories of cookies to both deliver you a positive experience when using our website and to collect data that can help us improve our services.

Essential Cookies — some cookies are necessary for you to use our website and its features. Without them, some parts of our website could not function. No information about your browsing or use habits are gathered by these kinds of cookies.

You can read more about our use of analytics cookies in the Google Analytics & Google Ads section below.

Targeting Cookies — these kinds of cookies are used to deliver relevant ads to you on other sites. Targeting cookies are set by third party suppliers (like Google or Facebook) who serve you ads based on your previous visits to our website. Without these kinds of cookies, online advertisements you encounter are less relevant to you. You can read more about our use of targeting cookies and remarketing in the Targeted Advertising section below.

Managing & Disabling Cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. They can be configured not to do so, or to notify a user when a cookie is being sent. If you want to disable cookies, please refer to your specific browser's help menu. Please note that disabling browser cookies or Flash cookies may interfere with the proper functioning of our website.

Beacons/Pixels

Beacons (also called "pixels") communicate information from your device to a server. These can be embedded in online content, in videos, and in emails. They allow a server to read certain types of information from your device, know the time and date when you viewed particular content or read an email message, and the IP address of your device. We and third parties may use these technologies for a variety of purposes, including to analyze and understand your use of our website.

Other Technologies & Local Storage

We and third parties may also implement other kinds of similar technologies, such as Local Shared Objects ("Flash cookies"), HTML5 local storage, or unique identifiers associated with your device (such as mobile ad identifiers).

These technologies are similar to cookies in that they are stored on your device and store certain information about your activities and preferences. They may use different parts of your device than standard cookies, so you may not be able to control them using standard browser settings.

Disabling HTML5 local storage varies depending on your browser(s). You can find information about disabling or deleting information in Flash cookies here.

Please note that disabling or deleting these technologies may interfere with the performance of our site, or cause some features to display improperly.

Google Analytics & Google Ads

Google is a third-party vendor we use for gathering and analyzing data about your use of our website, and for advertising to you on other websites across the internet.

We have implemented first-party cookies (like the Google Analytics cookie) on our website in order to use Google's services.

Google Analytics

We use the Google Analytics cookie to gather data about visitors to our website and how they use our website, such as the pages visited, the time spent on each page, and how visitors move through our site. Analytics helps us to understand where our visitors are coming from and what content on our site is most popular. This helps us to continually improve our website and services by creating content that is useful and relevant, and making sure that our website is easy to use.

Google Analytics Advertising Features

We have also enabled advertising features in our Google Analytics by implementing additional Google cookies on our site. These features, such as Demographics and Interest Reporting, collect and report on additional data about our traffic.

These first-party cookies as well as third-party cookies (like a Facebook cookie) compile data regarding user interactions specific to ad impressions and other ad service functions relating to our website.

As with other analytics data, this helps us to better understand how visitors are finding and using our website so that we can continue to improve and tailor content, including advertisements, to better serve our visitors.

Google Ads

Formerly called AdWords, Google Ads allows us to serve ads to previous website visitors on the Google advertising network established on sites across the Internet. We use the Remarketing or Similar Audiences feature in Google Ads in order to serve ads to past website visitors.

Google Ads Policies: https://support.google.com/adspolicy/answer/6008942?hl=en&visit_id=636776490751347440-1686679232&rd=1

Please note that cookies are device AND browser specific, which means they cannot communicate across devices or web browsers like Firefox and Chrome. This also means that if you use multiple browsers and wish to opt-out of tracking, you will need to do so for all devices and browsers.

Targeted Advertising

As discussed above, we work with third party vendors, like Google and Facebook, who use cookies to show relevant ads to you on other sites based on your previous visits to our website.

These technologies also help us to determine if you've seen a particular advertisement before, tailor ads to you if you've previously visited our website, and avoid sending you duplicate ads.

CalOPPA: Your California Privacy Rights

The California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) is the first state law to require commercial websites to post a privacy policy.

If you are a resident of California, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to once a year, free of charge, request information about the disclosure of your personal information to a third party for that third party's direct marketing purposes.

We do not share personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and have additional questions about this policy, or would like to make such a request, please send an email to or write to us at:

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children without parental consent.

Do Not Track Signals

Some web browsers offer users a "do not track" option or similar mechanism that can send signals to websites indicating users do not want their online activity to be tracked. This option differs from blocking cookies, because some browsers can still accept cookies even with the "do not track" option enabled.

Currently there is no industry standard defining how companies and websites should respond to "do not track" signals. We currently do not respond to "do not track" signals. If we do so in the future, we will modify this policy.

Changes Made to Our Privacy Policy

We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, as is necessary. We will notify you of changes by posting them here.

Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective when the updates are posted here on our website.

Your use of our website and your provision of personal information to use our website indicates your acceptance of this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or our use of cookies, please contact us.
