We may use local shared objects, sometimes known as Flash cookies, to store your preferences or to display content based on what you view on our site in order to personalize your visit. Our advertisers and third party service providers may also use Flash cookies to collect and store data. Flash cookies differ from browser cookies in the amount, type, and manner in which data is stored. The cookie management tools available on your browser will not delete Flash cookies.

What are the different types of cookies that may be used?
Cookies that may be used on this website fall into four different categories, described below. These descriptions may help you determine how you would like to interact with our websites and other online services.
- Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies play a key role in enabling you to navigate this website and use some of its features. Without these strictly necessary cookies, the online services you request, such as shopping carts, or invoice presentations when validating a purchase, cannot be provided to you.

- Performance Cookies
We (or service providers operating on our behalf) may place performance cookies on your device. The information we collect using performance cookies is used only by us or for our benefit.
Our performance cookies collect anonymous information about how you use this website and its features. For example, our performance cookies collect information about which pages of this site you visit most frequently, whether you open or read communications we send you, advertisements you view or interact with on this website or other websites on which our advertisements appear, and whether you receive error messages. The information collected may be used to personalize your online experience by displaying content that we hope you enjoy. Our performance cookies may also be used to limit the number of times you see the same ad. Our performance cookies do not collect information that personally identifies you; however, if you have an account with us, information collected by us through performance cookies may be associated with your account.
We may also allow third party advertisers to place performance cookies on your device through their advertisements on this website. The information collected by third party performance cookies is used to determine which third party ads display, how often and where those ads get the best results on this website. These third party performance cookies do not collect information that personally identifies you.
