A cookie (also called a “browser cookie”, “HTML cookie” or similar names) is a small piece of data that is stored on your device to help websites and mobile apps track and remember things about you. Other technologies, including Flash cookies (also called “locally shared objects”), Web beacons (also called “pixels”, “transparent GIFs”, “web bugs” or “action tags”) and other Web storage and identifiers associated with your device, may be used for similar purposes. In this policy, we say “cookies” to refer to all of these technologies.
The cookies we use generally fall into one of the following categories:

However, please note that if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to view or use parts of our website or other online services due to limited functionality. Some cookies we use may be stored using a web-browsing component other than a browser application?which might not be capable of being disabled on your device, but the information collected does not personally identify you, and does not permit tracking between online services.
