Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device to help the site provide a better user experience. In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymous tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics. As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date); a “session” cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. If you prefer to disable cookies on this site, and on others, the most effective way to do so is in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at how you can disable cookies on your device here. Please note that blocking cookies may have a negative impact on the functions of many websites, including our Site, and some features of the Site may cease to be available to you.
Third Party Sites
There are several third party sites that this Site uses:
Google Analytics tracks site usage and provides information about a user’s actions while visiting the website. Google Analytics provides information such as the website through which you were referred to this Site (for example, if a user clicks a pin in Pinterest that leads them to this site, Google Analytics would track the session as having come from Pinterest, and which page on Pinterest led the user to this Site). Other information collected includes the number of pages visited, session length, and other information about users’ navigation while on this Site. Information collected through Google Analytics does not personally identify you, as this Site has anonymized all IP addresses. If you would like to opt out of Google Analytic tracking, you may do so here.
