CONSENT

By continuing to visit our Site or use our Services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and other similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this Policy.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small text files which are downloaded to your browser or device when you visit a website. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains so when you visit our Site and Services, your browser or device may receive cookies from several sources. This includes third parties that provide services on our behalf, such as site analytics or ad targeting. In relation to the use of cookies by third parties, we do not have access or control over these cookies.

Local Shared Objects (aka “Flash cookies”) and local storage in HTML5 may also be used on our Site and Services to enhance your experience by, for example, storing your user preferences and settings like volume/mute settings. Local Shared Objects are data files similar to browser cookies, but can store more complex data than simple text. You can manage local shared objects by following the instructions on Adobe’s help site here.

Our emails may contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to you and to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should select to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.

WHY DO WE USE COOKIES?

Our Site uses both 1st party cookies (which are set directly by us) and 3rd party cookies (which are set by third parties). We use 1st party and 3rd party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for the Site and the Services to operate, and we refer to these as "Strictly Necessary" cookies. Some cookies allow us to measure and improve the performance of our Site and Services, such as by counting visits and traffic sources, and we refer to these as "Performance" cookies. Some cookies enable us to provide enhanced functionality and personalization on the Sites and Services, and we refer to these as “Functional” cookies. Finally, some cookies enable us and our partners to serve targeted advertisements, and we refer to these as “Targeting” cookies. The specific types of 1st and 3rd party cookies served through the Site and the Services and the purposes they perform are described below.

DISABLING COOKIES

If you do not agree to the use of these cookies please disable them by following the instructions for your browser(s) set out at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html. Please note that the Site and Services will not function well if cookies are disabled. It may also stop you from saving customized settings, like login information.

If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt out again from targeted advertising (see below). You may download a browser extension that will help preserve the opt-out preferences you set by visiting www.aboutads.info/PMC.

OPTING OUT OF TARGETED ADVERTISING BY THIRD PARTIES

For cookies that track activity in connection with targeting advertising, you can opt-out of third party targeting cookies on the Digital Advertising Alliance’s consumer choice page ( http://optout.aboutads.info) or the Network Advertising Initiative’s consumer choice page (http://optout.networkadvertising.org) or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance consumer choice page (http://youronlinechoices.eu).

Some of our third party targeting providers have their own opt-out mechanisms that are linked from their sites or their online-posted privacy policies. You should review the privacy policies of those companies for these opt-out links if you no longer wish to receive targeted advertising from a particular company, or multiple companies.

Please note that opting out from targeted advertising will not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

Other tools offered by third parties can help you see and manage the types of cookies and trackers that you encounter. More information about cookies and cookie management can be found on www.allaboutcookies.org and www.aboutcookies.org. If you access the Website on your mobile device, you may not be able to control tracking technologies through these settings.

Browser manufacturers also provide help pages relating to cookie management in their products.

For other browsers, please consult the documentation that your browser manufacturer provides.

After your initial visit to the Site and Services we may change the cookies and other technologies we use.
