|Essential||These cookies are necessary for our Service to function technically (they let you navigate a website and use its features, for example).||See ‘your choices’ below.|
|Functionality / performance||Boost our Service’s functionality and performance.||See ‘your choices’ below.|
Our websites and emails may also use other technologies, such as pixel tags or Flash technology, to automatically gather information in addition to cookies.
Web browser storage
For similar purposes to cookies, we might use browser web storage (including through HTML5), commonly referred to as locally stored objects (or “LSOs”). Compared to cookies, browser web storage allows for the storage of more data. You might be able to clear the web storage in your web browser.
In order to track user behaviour on our sites and interactions with our emails, we may also utilise web beacons, often referred to as pixel tags and clear GIFs, on our websites and in HTML-formatted emails. In contrast to cookies, which a website places on your computer or mobile device’s hard drive, pixel tags are subtly inserted into web pages or HTML-formatted emails. Pixel tags are used to show that a website has been visited or that a piece of content has been viewed, typically to gauge the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns or the response to our emails (for example, they may show us whether you have opened an email and/or forwarded it to another person) and to compile data on how people use specific websites in order to manage our content more effectively.
It is up to you

Follow the directions in your browser’s settings to accomplish this. The default setting for many browsers is to allow cookies until you change it. Visit www.allaboutcookies.org for additional information on cookies, including how to manage and delete them as well as how to view what cookies have been placed on your device.

You might have to sign in each time you visit one of our sites because, for instance, we might not be able to recognize your computer or mobile device.
