1. COOKIES

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.

2. USING COOKIES

We use cookies on our websites for a variety of reasons which you can learn about below. The cookies we use do not store personally identifiable information nor can they harm your computer. We want our website to be informative, personal, and as user friendly as possible and cookies help us to achieve that goal.

We use cookies for two purposes;

  • we utilize permanent cookies to save your login information for future logins to the Services.
  • we utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Services, to better understand how you interact with the Services, and to keep track of browsing patterns.

3. TYPE OF COOKIES WE USE

ESSENTIAL COOKIES

These cookies are essential for websites on our services to perform their basic functions. These include those required to allow registered users to authenticate and perform account related functions. If you opt to disable these cookies, you will not be able to access the website.

ANALYTICS AND PERFORMANCE COOKIES

These cookies gather information on user’s interaction with our websites, including what pages are visited most, as well as other analytical data. We use these details to provide you with a higher standard and personalized services by customizing our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. We collect data through Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics, which use cookies and technologies to collect and analyze data about the use of the Services. These services collect data regarding the use of other websites and online resources.

As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties and used by them to track your online activity. We have no direct control over the information that is collected by these cookies.

FLASH COOKIES

Flash cookies or “local shared objects” [LSOs] are data files that are stored on computers by websites that use Adobe® Flash®. Like browser cookies, Flash cookies can store user information in Flash applications. Flash cookies are sometimes used by sites as “backup” once the browser cookie is deleted. We may use flash cookies for the purpose of enhancing your experience using our website and delivering content for flash players. Flash cookies are managed through a different interface. To manage Flash cookies, please visit Adobe’ Website.

4. CONTROL AND DELETE COOKIES

You can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level, you can usually set your browser to disable cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. Likewise, most mobile devices allow you to disable the ability for geo-location information to be collected from your mobile device. The help function on most browsers and mobile devices contains instructions on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies, disable cookies entirely, or disable the collection of geo-location data. You need to set each browser; on each device, you use to surf the Web. Thus, if you use multiple browsers (e.g., Chrome, Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.), you should repeat this procedure with each one.

However, if you disable certain cookies or refuse to accept a request to place a cookie, it is possible that some parts of this Site, such as the polls, surveys, contests, and product sales, and certain areas of this Site for which you need to log in, will not function properly, and the advertising you receive when you visit this Site may not be advertisements tailored to your interests.
