COOKIES & 3rd PARTY ADVERTISEMENTS

We pub­lish inter­est-based adver­tise­ments on the Site; that is, ads that are tai­lored to reflect your inter­ests. To help under­stand your inter­ests, Google and our oth­er adver­tis­ing part­ners will track your behav­iour on our web­site and on oth­er web­sites across the Inter­net using cookies.

A cook­ie is a file con­tain­ing an iden­ti­fi­er (a string of let­ters and num­bers) that is sent by a web serv­er to a web brows­er and is stored by the brows­er. The iden­ti­fi­er is then sent back to the serv­er each time the brows­er requests a page from the serv­er. Cook­ies may be either “per­sis­tent” cook­ies or “ses­sion” cook­ies: a per­sis­tent cook­ie will be stored by a web brows­er and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless delet­ed by the user before the expiry date; a ses­sion cook­ie, on the oth­er hand, will expire at the end of the user ses­sion, when the web brows­er is closed.  Cook­ies do not typ­i­cal­ly con­tain any infor­ma­tion that per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fies a user, but per­son­al infor­ma­tion that we store about you may be linked to the infor­ma­tion stored in and obtained from cookies.

By using this Site, you con­sent to the use of such cook­ies and the shar­ing of data cap­tured by such cook­ies with Google, and our oth­er third par­ty part­ners. You can view, delete or add inter­est cat­e­gories asso­ci­at­ed with your brows­er by vis­it­ing: https://adssettings.google.com. You can also opt out of the net­work cook­ie using those set­tings or using the Net­work Adver­tis­ing Initiative’s mul­ti-cook­ie opt-out mech­a­nism at: http://optout.networkadvertising.org. How­ev­er, these opt-out mech­a­nisms them­selves use cook­ies, and if you clear the cook­ies from your brows­er your opt-out will not be maintained.
