1. What are cookies and similar technologies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device when you visit a website and are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device. The term “cookie” in this Cookie Policy describes a range of technologies, including pixel tags and mobile device identifiers. While the specific names, types and categories of cookies we may use may change from time to time as we improve and update the Service, we have provided some basic definitions in order to help you better understand this Cookie Policy.

We may use both persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your device for a set period of time or until you delete them, while session cookies are deleted once you close your web browser. The cookies placed through your use of our Service are either set by us (first-party cookies) or by a third party at our request (third-party cookies).

This Cookie Policy also governs other types of tracking technologies used through the Service, namely:

Pixels – A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an email notification that typically works in conjunction with cookies to identify users and record user behavior. we may use pixels to learn whether you have interacted with certain web or email content. This helps us measure and improve the Service and personalize your experience. Local Storage – Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We may use local storage, including HTML5, to customize what we show you based on your content consumption and other past interactions with the Service. Device Identifiers – Device identifiers are distinctive numbers associated with a smartphone or similar handheld device.
