Cookies
A cookie is a small data file, often including an anonymous unique identifierthat is sent from a web site's computer and stored on your computer's harddrive. Use of cookies is common on the Internet. A web site can send its owncookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protectyour privacy) your browser permits a web site to access only the cookies it hasalready sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. You canconfigure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify youwhen a cookie is sent. (Each browser is different, so check the"Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookiepreferences.) You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate whena cookie is being sent. But if you refuse cookies, some parts of the Site willnot function properly and may not provide services or information you haverequested.

Like many sites, we obtain Non-Personal Information such as IP (internetprotocol) addresses, browser types, the name of your ISP (internet serviceprovider), information about where a user comes from before arriving at ourSite, what pages a user visits, the order of those pages, and the amount oftime spent on each. A vendor performs this service for us by sending a cookieto gather this information, compile it, and report to us. We use Non-PersonalInformation to customize the advertising and content you see, improve ourservices, conduct research, and provide anonymous aggregated reporting for internalaudits and third parties.

 

Advertising Networks
We send to your web browser some of the advertisements you see when you use ournetwork of web sites. However, we also allow other companies, calledthird-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within our webpages. Because your web browser must request these advertising banners from thead network web site, these companies can send their own cookies to your cookiefile, just as if you had requested a web page from the web site. Please notethat if an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to a certain audience(for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24who have viewed sports content) and you respond to that ad, the advertiser orad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they aretrying to reach. As always, remember we authorize our third-party ad servers toemploy anonymous cookies only for ad delivery and anonymous targeting. Ourthird-party ad servers do not collect, nor do we give them access, to any PersonalInformation about you.
