COOKIES, USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS, “DO NOT TRACK”

Our platform and website do not use cookies, which are small data files sent to your computer on the basis of the information that we have collected about your visit.

Our Website employs Google Analytics, a web analytics tool provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their websites. We can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with our Website so we can improve it. Google Analytics collects information anonymously. Google uses cookies, and IP addresses, and it reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. In the event a visitor to the Website voluntarily submits contact information to Google, Google may then associate such information with the applicable IP address to enable us to see that visitor’s specific interactions with our Website.

You can opt out of Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-On. For information about and to install Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on, click here.

Do Not Track Signals

Certain web browsers provide users with an option by which you may have your browser send a “Do Not Track” signal to websites that you are visiting, advising the recipient websites that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. However, the way browsers communicate such “Do Not Track” signals is not yet uniform and, accordingly, our website does not take any action in response to such signals. In the event a final standard is developed and accepted, we may reassess how we should respond to such signals.
