What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files, often including unique identifiers, that are downloaded onto your device when you access our Products. They allow us to recognize your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions on our website, ultimately allowing us to improve your experience. Cookies are very useful and enhance your user experience.
We and the third-party API providers may collect information using cookies, pixel tags, or similar technologies. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will always be used.
Web beacons, tags, and scripts may be used in the Products or in emails to help us to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by our service/analytics providers on an individual and aggregated basis.
Unfortunately, in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to the Products. It is recommended that you accept our usage of cookies if you are not sure whether you need them or not, in case they are necessary for a Product that you use.
