What are cookies?
- Pixels: A pixel is a small amount of code on a web page or in an email notification that typically works in conjunction with cookies to identify users and record user behavior. We use pixels to learn whether you have interacted with certain web or email content. This helps us measure and improve the Services and personalize your experience.
- Local Storage: Local storage is an industry-standard technology that allows a website or application to store information locally on your computer or mobile device. We use local storage, including HTML5, to customize what we show you based on your content consumption and other past interactions with the Services.
We use the following cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are necessary for the Website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They allow us to enable security, prevent fraud and debug the Website and are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in, or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but then some parts of the Website will not work.
- Analytical or Performance cookies: These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Website. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the Website. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our Website and will not be able to monitor its performance.
- Functional cookies: These are used to recognize you when you return to our Services. This enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, and remember your account preferences.
We use both persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your device for a set period of time or until you delete them, while session cookies are deleted once you close your web browser. The cookies placed through your use of our Services are either set by us (first-party cookies) or by a third party at our request (third-party cookies).
The table below explains in more detail the types of cookies we use and why:

We allow certain service providers to place third-party cookies and use similar technologies through your use of the Services for purposes of analyzing performance, including collecting information about your online activities over time and across different websites, applications, and/or devices. These cookies are subject to such third parties’ cookie and/or privacy policies. For instance, to help us better understand how people engage with the Services, we work with third-party analytics partners such as Google Analytics. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions. In our case, these cookies are used to collect information about how users use our Services. This information is used to compile reports, which disclose Website trends without identifying individual visitors, and help us improve our Website. For more information on Google Analytics, click here. You can also learn more about Google’s privacy practices by going to https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. Additionally, we allow other third-party partners to set cookies, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Bing, Zendesk, Google, and others.
We may also obtain information from our email newsletters or other communications we send to you, including whether you opened or forwarded a newsletter or clicked on any of its content. This information tells us about our newsletters’ effectiveness and helps us ensure that we are delivering information that you find interesting.
