Categories of Cookies

 

Cookies do many different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies can tell us, for example, whether you have visited the Site before or whether you are a new visitor. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

 

There are different categories of cookies, including:

 

• First-party Cookies – First party cookies are served directly by us to your computer or device.

 

• Third-party Cookies – Third-party cookies are served by a third party on our behalf. We use third party cookies for functionality, performance/analytics, advertising, and social media purposes.

 

Other Tracking Technologies

 

We also use technologies which are similar to cookies such as pixel tags, web beacons, and mobile device IDs.

 

• Pixels – Small portions of code which we use on our Sites. We use pixels to learn whether you have clicked on certain web content. This helps us measure and improve our Services and personalize your experience.

We use web beacons to see how you interact with our Sites and understand how often you view certain content so that we can make our website more efficient and easier to use. Web beacons collect limited information, including a cookie number, a record of the page on which they are placed and a timestamp. Websites may also carry web beacons placed by third party advertisers.

 

• Mobile device IDs - A unique identifier which can be used to identify a mobile device. Our advertising partners use these to show you ads that are useful to you and also to make sure they don’t show the same ad to you twice.

 

• Local storage - We also use local storage to store data on your device such as the last time you visited a webpage, to remember which items you put in our shopping cart or can welcome you to our Sites.
