"Cookies" are small files containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer's browser and stored on your device when you visit a website.

Additionally, if you clear all cookies on your browser, you may need to reset any privacy settings in your browser which are stored in cookies.
Our Services use the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:
Type of Cookie
Analytics and Performance Cookies
These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Services and how users use our Services. The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor, but rather enables us to count the number of unique visitors. It includes the number of visitors to our Services, the websites that referred them to our Services, the pages that they visited on our Services, what time of day they visited our Services, whether they have visited our Services before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate our Services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our Services. We use Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own cookies. It is only used to improve how our Services works. You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here. You can find out more about how Google protects your data here. You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of our Services by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via this link. Please note that our transfer of information to Google might be deemed a sale in certain jurisdictions. Where applicable, we will provide you a notice of our transfer of information and provide you with the ability to opt-out of such sale or sharing of information.
These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our Services and to enable you to use its features. For example, they allow you to log in to secure areas of our Services and help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.
These cookies allow our Services to remember choices you make when you use our Services, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details, remembering which polls you have voted in and in some cases, to show you poll results, and remembering the changes you make to other parts of our Services which you can customize. These cookies also enable us to identify you across various screens and devices as you login and use our Services, as well as enable us to work with partners to resolve your digital identities and personalize your experiences across our Services, our partners and customers, and across channels. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our Services.
A Flash cookie is a data file placed on a device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that is built into or downloaded by you onto your device. Flash cookies are used for various purposes, including, without limitation, enabling a Flash feature and remembering your preferences. For more information about Flash and the privacy choices Adobe offers, visit this link. If you choose to adjust your Flash privacy settings on your device some features of the Services may not function properly.
We also use “pixel tags,” which are small graphic files that allow us and third parties to monitor the use of the Services and collect usage data. We may also insert pixel tags on third parties’ websites. A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time (and length of time) the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that retrieved the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie previously placed by that server on your computer. We use pixel tags to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions taken in connection with our sites and Services and use them in combination with our cookies to provide offers and information of interest to you. We may also use pixel tags to collect data related to a website visit. Similar functionality may be enabled in a mobile app through the use of an SDK (Software Development Kit). Pixel tags also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit the Services or other websites. Please note that our transfer of information to these third-party might be deemed a sale in certain jurisdictions. Where applicable, we will provide you a notice of our transfer of information and provide you with the ability to opt-out of such sale or sharing of information. In addition, we use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection purposes.

To stop receiving notifications or promotions, please click the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of each email. For purposes of this policy, we refer to data subjects located in the European Economic Area, United Kingdom, and Switzerland as “EEA” users. We only send marketing communications to users located in the EEA with your prior consent. Please see the section “GDPR: Information for EEA Users” below.
We use industry standard technical, administrative, and physical controls to protect your data. While we take reasonable precautions against possible security breaches, no website or internet transmission is completely secure and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized access, hacking, data loss, or other breach will never occur. We will process and store your personal information only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage, or as permitted by law. The criteria used to determine the period of storage of information is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding information is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of a contract or the initiation of a contract.
You can choose to deactivate your account so that you are no longer viewable on the Services. You can request deactivation through the Services or by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Services may contain links to and from third-party websites. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies, which may differ substantially from ours, and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for their activities or the content of their privacy policies.
Certain U.S. States (e.g., California, Virginia) provide additional privacy protections for data subjects located within their jurisdictions, including: a) the right to see what data we have about you, your computer or device (i.e., the right to know), b) the right to delete the data we have about you, your computer or device (i.e., the right to delete), c) the right to correct data we have about you, your computer or device, d) the right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of data about you, your computer or device to certain third parties (i.e., the right to opt-out from sales/sharing of your information), and e) the right to port such data to a different company. We do not discriminate against you if you exercise any of the above rights.
Please note that we may not be able to honor a right if doing so would otherwise violate applicable law.
Applicable law in those states provide you with the right to opt-out of the sale or sharing of your personal information, profiling and targeted ads. We do not transfer your personal information to third parties in exchange for money or engage in profiling or targeted ads, but we may share it with certain third parties for activities like targeted advertising, marketing, and analytics, and these may be deemed a "sale" under applicable law. You may opt-out of sale here if you are located in a place that requires such rights.

Verification Process and Required Information
