What Are Cookies and Pixel Tags?
"Cookies" are small strings of text or computer code stored locally on your device that allow us and our third-party service providers to identify your browser and/or device as you browse the Internet. Cookies can be placed, read, and/or written to by our Website, or other websites or services that recognize a particular cookie, which allows the website to "remember" or "recognize" a particular browser or device and, in some cases, store information about that browser or device.
Certain types of cookies or cookie-like functionality may be placed or activated through browser add-ons, including, but not limited to, Adobe Flash. While these cookies are stored differently, their functionality and purpose is generally similar to other cookies.
Cookies are often used in conjunction with "pixel tags" (also known as "web beacons" or "clear gifs"). Pixel tags are small images that website operators, analytics providers, and other third parties can use to interact with cookies and other tracking technologies.
