How to control the use of cookies

You are not obliged to accept cookies and may modify your browser so that it will not accept cookies. The browser you use to surf the web not only allows you to see the cookies that you have got but also allows you to control their use.

You can control them by allowing them, deleting them individually or deleting all of them. You can also set your browser to not accept cookies altogether. If this option is selected, you should be aware that many websites will not function properly or at all. It may be possible to set your browser to not accept cookies and ask for your consent before each cookie is set on your device. This gives you control over what is set on your device, however, it may slow down your browsing experience.

There are different levels of control too. You are able to prevent just third party cookies being deployed, effectively opting out of third party behavioural advertising, and some browsers even allow you to block specific companies you do not wish to deploy a cookie, instead of selecting all companies.

In order to manage your cookies, please go to your browser and follow the instructions on handling cookies.


How can I prevent Online Behavioral Advertising?

Further to using your browser to controlling the use of cookies, there are also other ways that you can opt out of Online Behavioural Advertising. The “Your Online Choices” page provided by the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB), provides an easy way to opt out of behavioural advertising from each (or all) of the networks represented by the IAB.

Our Cookie and Tracking Policy

DO WE USE COOKIES, TRACK IP ADDRESSES, OR USE OTHER MEANS TO COLLECT INFORMATION?
Cookies
We use cookies to improve the use and functionality of our websites. A cookie is a small text file that may be placed in your browser by websites you visit and the content partners for those sites. You can use the preferences in your browser to view, control and delete the cookies you have by, for example, emptying the cache in your browser. You may check the "Help" menu on your Internet browser for more information, or check with your browser provider.
Cookies help websites remember visitors when they return to the site. For example, a cookie can help a website remember that you’ve already registered, so you don’t have to sign in again each time you visit. Essentially, cookies are used to customize websites based on the content you view and the preferences you have indicated.

We may use cookies to (i) allow us to personalize information for certain segments of our customer base, (ii) allow us to associate individual customers with their information profiles, (iii) keep track of and administer your status, preferences, business information and other information provided by you, (iv) for security purposes, and (v) to understand visitor usage of our websites on an anonymous basis.

We allow third-party companies to collect certain information when you visit our website. We use this information to serve ads for our products or services or for the products or services of other companies when you visit this website or other websites. These companies use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over, hardware/software information, cookie and session ID) and personally identifiable information (e.g. IP address) during your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These parties typically use a cookie or a third party web beacon to collect this information.

You may remove any cookies as described above or “opt out” of receiving advertisements or other cookies by using services such as those provided by the Digital Advertising Alliance or Network Advertising Initiative. You may find more information about their members and the “opt out” process by going to their websites at www.aboutads.info/choices or www.networkadvertising.org.

IP Addresses
We may keep track of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to (among other things): (i) troubleshoot technical concerns, (ii) maintain website safety and security, (iii) restrict access to our Sites to certain users, and, (iv) better understand how our Sites are utilized. An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet.

Log Files
We (or a vendor on our behalf) may collect information in the form of logs - files that record website activity and gather statistics about web users' browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help us gather (among other things) (i) a user’s browser type and operating system, (ii) information about a user’s session (such as the URL they came from, the date and time they visited our Site, and which pages they've viewed on our site and for how long), and, (iii) other similar navigational or click-stream data. We also use information captured in log file for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve and customize the online services we provide you. Log files are used internally only, and are not associated with any particular user.

Web Beacons
We may use web beacons (or clear GIFs) on our Websites or include them in the e-mail messages we send you. Web beacons (also known as “web bugs”) are small strings of code that provide a method of delivering a graphic image on a web page or in an email message for the purpose of transferring data back to us. The information collected via web beacons may include some of the information described in the IP Address section directly above, as well as information about how a user responds to an email campaign from Cequent (e.g., the time the email is opened, where does the user link to from the email, etc.). We use web beacon information for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to, site traffic reporting, unique visitor counts, advertising and email auditing and reporting, and personalization.

Google Analytics
We use “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies on your browser.

Google Analytics employs cookies to define user sessions, which allows for the collection of data about how visitors are using the website. Google Analytics uses only first-party cookies for data analysis. This means that the cookies are linked to a specific website domain, and Google Analytics will only use that cookie data for statistical analysis related to your browsing behavior on that specific website. According to Google, the data collected cannot be altered or retrieved by services from other domains.
