What Cookies are used by our Sites?
Our Sites may store the following categories of Cookies:
Essential Cookies. These Cookies are always active and are necessary for our Sites to function. They are often stored in response to your own actions, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in, or when filling out webforms. You cannot disable essential Cookies on our Sites. If you configure your browser to block essential Cookies, our Sites may not function as intended.
Functional Cookies. These Cookies enable our Sites to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers, including social media services, whose services we have added to our webpages to provide these enhanced functionalities. If functional Cookies are disabled, then such enhanced functionalities may stop working.
Performance Cookies. Also known as “analytics” Cookies, these Cookies record visits and traffic sources to our Sites so that we can measure and improve the performance of our Sites. They help us to know which webpages are the most popular and better understand how visitors move around and interact with our Sites.
Targeting Cookies. Also known as “advertising” Cookies, these Cookies may be stored through our Sites by us or by our advertising partners. They may be used to identify your interests and show you relevant advertising on other websites, including for our products and services. If you disable these Cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

A full list of the Cookies currently used on our Sites is available under the “Details” tab of the Cookie Preference Settings.
How can I exercise my Cookie preferences?
Depending on your location and the rights applicable to you, you may be able to “opt-in” (i.e., consent) or “opt-out” of certain types of nonessential Cookies (i.e., functional, performance, and targeting Cookies). To exercise the options available to you, please refer to our Cookie Preference Settings. Please note that if you clear your web browser’s Cookie cache or visit our Sites from a different web browser or device, your Cookie preferences may need to be reset.
Most web browsers also have built-in Cookie features that allow you to adjust your Cookie preferences and delete your Cookies. However, please note that our Sites may not respond to Do-Not-Track signals or opt-out preference signals, such as global privacy controls.
Are there any specific rights that apply to me?
Visitors from the European Union, United Kingdom, and other jurisdictions, will be opted out of all nonessential Cookies by default but may opt-in (consent) to any category of Cookie by togging each respective Cookie category “On.” Likewise, you may subsequently toggle each respective Cookie category to “Off” if you wish to withdraw your consent.
How do we update our Cookie Statement?
We may update this Cookie Statement from time-to-time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the Cookies we use or for other operational, legal, or regulatory reasons.
