Storing your preferences, settings, and information you provide
We use information collected through tracking technologies to provide custom, personalized content and information, including targeted content and advertising, recognize you across multiple devices, monitor aggregate usage metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, usage, and demographic patterns of our visitors, and otherwise enhance our platform and your user experience.

Cookie controls and advertising choices
Most web browsers provide controls that allow you to block or delete cookies. Generally, you can go to the Help section on your internet browser and see instructions for blocking or deleting cookies. Please note that certain features that we use on our websites depend on cookies. If you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use those features, and preferences that are dependent on cookies may be lost. Please also note that we or our advertising providers may use web beacons on our websites to allow us to count users who have visited certain web pages and to generate statistics about how our site is used. Web beacons, unlike cookies, cannot be declined. However, setting your browser to decline cookies or prompt you for a response will keep most web beacons from tracking your activity.
To learn more about the use of interest-based advertising and opt out of the collection of information for interest-based advertising by certain third parties, you can visit the following sites:
As some of the information collected for interest-based advertising is also used for other necessary purposes (such as analytics and fraud detection), opting out of interest-based advertising does NOT stop that information from being collected. You will also continue to receive non-interest-based advertisements and may not see fewer ads.
Do not track disclosure
Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that allows you to tell a web site not to track you. Since these features are not all uniform, we do not currently respond to those signals. We do not currently respond to web browser “Do Not Track” signals that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information about online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.
