Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. They are widely used in order to make websites work, and to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website (and any third parties they work with) and to manage elements of their business. Without certain cookies, some areas and functionalities of a website will not work (e.g. user logins or shopping bags).

Social network buttons and widgets passively transmit information regarding a social network’s members.  This may allow a social network to personally identify its members and to know the web pages its members have visited.  This is true wherever social network buttons are embedded, regardless of whether the button is “clicked” or “pressed.”  This is also true for various web services that have social network functionality such as YouTube and Instagram.

If you belong to a social network (such as Facebook or Twitter) or use web services (such as YouTube and Instagram), you should review the privacy policies of those networks and services to understand the nature of the data that they collect and what, if any, options you have to control how data is collected and used.


Our site interest-based advertising, which is the collection of browsing data over time so that our ads and marketing can be personalized and displayed to you on our websites and 3rd party websites.  You can choose to opt out of having your data used for targeting and serving interest-based advertising by using the opt-outs provided by the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance.  These opt-outs, however, do require that cookies be enabled in your browser:

This does not mean that we will not serve you ads, but it does mean that we will not use interest-based advertising to do so.
