Third Party Tracking Companies

We share your cookies, IP address and Device ID. These third parties may also collect information directly from you as described in this Privacy Policy.

Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit the Sites, what pages they visit when they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to our Sites. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with Personal Data. Although Google Analytics places a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use (www.google.com/analytics/tos.html) and the Google Privacy Policy (www.google.com/privacypolicy.html).
