- Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Cookies, Pixels, and Similar Tracking Technologies Used: We and our authorised partners also collect information via cookies, web beacons, pixels, tags, embedded scripts, session replay tools, SDKs, Local Storage such as HTML5 and Local Shared Objects (“LSOs,” also known as Flash cookies), or other data retrieval and tracking technologies (“Tracking Technologies”), such as your Internet Service Provider and IP address, device identifier, browser type, operating system, your device’s WiFi MAC address or Bluetooth MAC address, the date and time you access our website interfaces, the pages you accessed while visiting our website interfaces, and the Internet address from which you accessed our website interfaces. Cookies are a type of technology that installs a small amount of information on a user’s computer or other device when they visit a website. Cookies permit a website to, for example, recognise future visits using that computer or device. Some cookies exist only during a single session and some are persistent over multiple sessions over time. We and our partners use these Tracking Technologies to ensure basic functionality of our website interfaces; to remember user preferences (including your preferences regarding Tracking Technologies); maximise the performance of our website interfaces and Services; provide you with offers that may be of interest to you; measure the effectiveness of our website interfaces, marketing campaigns, and email communications; and to personalise online content. These Tracking Technologies may be used to track you over time and across devices, websites, and Services.
Additionally, we may employ, either directly or through third parties, tracking pixels. Tracking pixels are tiny, transparent graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to provide analytical information concerning the user experience as well as to support custom marketing activities for users of our website interfaces. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, tracking pixels are embedded invisibly on web pages. Our website interfaces (and some electronic marketing communications) may use tracking pixels to help us better manage content, such as by improving the user interface or improving our marketing programs or the marketing of our affiliates, business partners, and other third parties (including for interest-based advertising as described below). The website interfaces may use information to create aggregate tracking information reports regarding user demographics, traffic patterns and purchases. We may also link tracking information with personal data.
Third-Party Companies: To provide you with a more relevant and interesting experience, we may work with third party companies to display ads or customise the content on our website interfaces or through other communication channels. These companies may use Tracking Technologies as described in this Statement to gather information about you, which may include your precise location, your visits to the website interfaces, and your visits elsewhere on the Internet. These companies also may use this information to provide you with more relevant advertising known as interest-based advertising, which may include sending you an ad on another online service after you have left our website interfaces (i.e. retargeting).
Your Choices: You may choose to alter our cookie settings as may be permitted within our website interfaces.
Section 6 does not apply to in-product cookies and our In-Product Cookie Statement can be found here.
