What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience.
What are the key concepts?
First-party cookies. These cookies are served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Sites.
Third-party cookies. They are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie. Third-party cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including site analytics, advertising, and social media features.
Persistent cookies. They are cookies that remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
Session cookies. These cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

If you choose to opt-out of targeted advertisements, you will still see advertisements online, but they may not be relevant to you.
