Statistical Cookies. Statistical or analytical cookies, delivered by us and other companies, help us to count the visits on our Service and know the sources of traffic. The data we derive allows us to understand what visitors like most and improve the Service. In order to provide our visitors with better content, we measure the number of page views, the number of visits, the different actions performed by visitors on our site, the geo-location of our visitors and the number of times visitors return to our site. If you delete these cookies, your frequency of visits, region, city, pageviews, bounces, site of origin, exit page, etc. cannot be tracked.
Customization Cookies. Customization cookies allow you to configure our Service according to your preferences (e.g., language, region) and enable enhanced functionality. They are delivered by us or by other companies. If you do not accept these Cookies, we will not be able to save your preferences and some services on our Service will not be available. If you delete them, personal preferences cannot be saved, and the site will forget your preferences.
Marketing Cookies. Marketing Cookies on our Service are delivered by other companies and used to identify your interests and display relevant advertising content when you browse outside of our website. These Cookies can enable social media features such as sharing and to simplify registration. If you do not accept them, you will still see online ads, but they will be less relevant.

Marketing cookies also include Cookies that allow you to interact with us and others via social media platforms, such as Facebook or LinkedIn. We may display interest-based ads to you when you are using platforms and the platforms allow us to personalize the ads that we display to you.
What are cookies used for?
In addition to Cookies, we may use web beacons, web bugs, internet or pixel tags, clear gifs, digital fingerprinting (also known as “Machine Identification“) and similar technologies (collectively, Machine Identification together with Cookies, the “Tracking Technologies”) on the Service, including in our communications with you, such as within e-mail and text messages and push notifications. We and Third Party Businesses use Tracking Technologies to determine which messages have been opened by recipients, and for all or some of the same lawful purposes described above for use of Local Device Storage.
How can you control cookies?
If you do not want Cookies, your Device or browser may include an option that allows you to not accept it. However, if you disable Cookies, some portions of the Service may not function properly.
Your browser setting may allow you to automatically transmit a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal to websites and online services that you visit. There is no consensus among industry participants as to what DNT means in this context, and some browsers automatically apply DNT signals by default and therefore do not necessarily reflect our visitors’ choice as to whether they wish to receive advertisements tailored to their interests. As a result, like many websites and online services, we do not alter our practices when the Service receives a DNT signal from a visitor’s browser. As discussed below, you may opt out of the use of your Personal Information for online behavioral advertising by third parties at any time.
