- What are Cookies and Other Online Tracking Technologies?
Cookies are small files that are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. The cookie then sends information back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Other types of tracking technologies work similarly to cookies and place small data files on your devices or monitor your website activity to enable us to collect information about how you use our Online Services. Accordingly, Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies allow our Online Services to recognize your device and track your activities and preferences, thereby allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently and to generally improve the user experience. The information provided below about cookies also applies to the other tracking technologies referenced above (i.e., web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, and other similar technologies). You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.
Cookies are often categorized by function. We use four types of cookies by function on our Online Services:
These are cookies that are strictly necessary for the functioning of a website or for performing services that an individual user has requested.

Persistent cookies remain on your device until deleted manually or automatically.
