1. What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed by your browser or device memory. Cookies typically contain the name of the domain (location on the Internet) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires), and a randomly generated unique number or comparable identifier. Cookies may also contain information about your device, such as user settings, browser history, and activity when using our services.
2. Are there different types of cookies?
2.1 First-party and third-party cookies
First-party cookies are placed on your device directly by us. For example, we use first-party cookies to customize our website to your browser’s language preferences and to better understand your use of our website. Third-party cookies are placed on your device by our partners and service providers. You can learn more about these partners and service providers in the consent management tools on our website and in the app. Details about these tools can be found below under “How to control cookies”.
2.2 Session cookies and persistent cookies
Session cookies expire when you close your browser. We use session cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to learn more about how you use our website during the course of a single session and to help you use our website more efficiently. Persistent cookies have a longer lifetime and persist beyond the current session. These types of cookies may be used for analytics purposes and for the other purposes described below.
2.3 Web Beacons and SDK
Other technologies, such as web beacons (also called pixel tags or clear gifs), tracking URL or software development kits (SDK), are used for similar purposes as cookies. Web beacons are tiny graphic files with a unique identifier that allow us to recognize when someone has visited our site or opened an email we sent. Tracking URLs are individually generated links that help us better understand where traffic to our websites comes from. SDK are snippets of code in apps that work like cookies and web beacons.
When you use our Services, some or all of the following types of cookies may be stored on your device.
|Necessary cookies||These cookies are strictly necessary to provide our services; they allow you to log in, store your preferences, and keep you safe by detecting malicious activity.|
|Analytics cookies||These cookies allow us to understand how our services are used and help us customize and improve our services for you.|
|Advertising & Marketing Cookies||With these cookies, we determine how effective our marketing campaigns are and ensure that the ads shown to you better match your interests. For example, they help us track how much interest our marketing campaigns generate for our services, prevent the same ad from being displayed again and again, ensure that ads are displayed properly to advertisers, select ads that are relevant to you, and track the number of ads displayed and their performance, such as how many people interacted with a particular ad.|
|Social network cookies||These cookies are used to allow you to share pages and content from our services that you find interesting through external social network and other websites or services. These cookies can also be used for advertising purposes.|
4. How can cookies be controlled?

You may also be able to reset device identifiers or object to the collection or processing of identifiers via the appropriate settings on your mobile device.

4.3 Tools for interest-based advertising
Advertisers may participate in self-regulatory programs that allow you to opt out of all interest-based advertising that affects them. You can find more information on the following pages: Digital Advertising Alliance; Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance; Appchoices (apps only).
