Usage Information may include but is not limited to, your browser type, operating system, the page served, the time, and the preceding page views. However, this information does not identify you as an individual user. We do not treat Usage Information as Personal Information unless it is combined with other data that, once linked, can be used to identify you. Usage Information helps us understand which parts of the Sites are the most popular, where our online visitors are going, and what content or services users may find useful.

If you have provided us with your Personal Information, for example, when you registered on the Site or requested information from us, we may associate this Personal Information with information we have collected through cookies, tracking pixels or other technologies.

 

Cookies. A “cookie” is a file that websites send to a user’s computer, or other Internet-connected device, to uniquely identify the user’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of the Site.

Data collected from a particular browser or Device may be used with another Device that is linked to the browser or Device on which such data was collected.
