Session and First Party Cookies
The types of cookies that we use are referred to as “session” cookies and “first party” cookies. Session cookies are temporary and are automatically deleted once you close your Internet browser. First Party cookies remain on your computer hard drive until you delete them or until they are otherwise removed upon expiration.

Your Cookie Choices
Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on website pages or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action.
