Third parties, including Google and Facebook, may use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies to collect or receive information from our websites and elsewhere on the internet and use that information to provide measurement services and target ads. You can opt-out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting using the options described in the Opting Out section below. The tracking technologies we utilize include the following:

a. Cookies. We may use different types of cookies when providing different types of web-related services. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit for detailed guidance. Cookies allow us to identify and authenticate visitors, track aggregate behavior, and enable important service features. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. Session ID cookies are used to maintain your browser state as you browse through services, and they expire when you close your browser. A persistent Cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period, and we use that to identify you should you return to services and want to find information you had previously entered or accessed.

We may also contract with analytics services, third-party affiliate services, and third-party advertising companies to collect similar information. These cookies allow the ad servers to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement, and compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows such Ad Networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.

You may disable cookies through your web browser. For information about opting out of these collection services, please see the Your Choices section below.

b. Web Beacons/Tags. We may automatically collect aggregate anonymous information through files embedded in our services and emails known as “web beacons.” We may deliver a web beacon to you through our services from an Advertising Network with which we have contracted. Web beacons allow third parties to provide anonymized and aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for us. Web beacons also allow us to tell whether email recipients are able to properly view messages or if email messages have been opened, to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to users. We do not tie the information gathered by web beacons to personal information.

c. Flash LSOs. When we post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as “Flash cookies,” to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies because of the amount and type of data and how the data is stored. The cookie management tools provided by many popular browsers will not remove Flash cookies. To learn how to manage Flash cookie privacy and storage settings, click here:

d.  Analytics. We may use analytics tools or similar tools provided by third parties (“Data Analytics Providers”) to help analyze how you and other users utilize our services. Analytics tools use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect information such as how often users visit our websites, what pages they visit, and what other websites they have used prior to visiting our website. We use the information we get from analytics tools only to improve services. Analytics tools collect the IP address or other unique identifier assigned to you on the date you visited services. We do not combine the information generated through the use of analytics tools with your other personal information. Analytics tools provided by third parties plant a persistent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit our website, and the treatment of that information is governed by the third party’s terms of use and/or privacy policy.

c. Analytics. Many analytics providers allow end-users to opt out of the retention of their information, including our third-party analytics providers. Please note that typically, unless you create an account with the analytics provider, your choice to opt out applies only to the device from which you make the request, because the providers use cookies on that device to recognize your choice.
