COOKIES, PIXELS, AND SERVER LOGS
Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilizes standard technologies, such as "cookies," "pixels," and server logs, to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies are small text files that a website or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your web browser, enabling the site or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. Pixels, also known as web beacons or tracking pixels, are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that function similarly to cookies and are placed on a website or in an email to track user engagement.
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies through your browser settings. If you disable cookies, some features of our Websites may not function properly, and your overall experience may be affected. However, you will still be able to access and use essential features and services on our Websites.
The Company reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. The Company reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.
