To improve our websites and to make your online experience more enjoyable, when you visit our websites we collect certain information by automated means, using cookies and other technologies.
Cookies, Web Server Logs and Pixel Tags
In conjunction with obtaining information through cookies, our web servers may log details such as your operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone in which your device is located. The web server logs also may record information such as the address of the web page that linked you to our site and the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet.
To control which web servers collect this information, we may place “pixel tags” (also called “web beacons” or “clear gifs”), which are tiny graphic images on our websites, to help us gather knowledge about how you use our websites.
Third Party Web Analytics Services
We may use third party web analytics services on our websites, such as Google Analytics. The service providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to help us analyze how visitors use the site. The information collected through these means (including IP address) is disclosed to these service providers, who use the information to evaluate use of the website. To disable the Google Analytics cookie and any other third party web analytics service provider cookies, some browsers indicate when a cookie is being sent and allow you to decline cookies on a case-by-case basis.
How we may use information collected by automated means

This information may be used to improve our websites, to personalize your online experience, to focus our communications with you, to determine the effectiveness of our advertising, and for other internal business purposes to improve your experience with us.
