We use a third-party service to publish ads on our behalf across the Internet. This third-party service may collect information about your visits to our Website and other websites and your interaction with our products and services, as well as with websites generally.

This information helps us to learn things like what pages are most attractive to our customers, which of our products most interest our customers and what kinds of offers our customers like to see. This is often called “behavioral advertising.” This information is collected through the use of a pixel tag, which is industry standard technology used by many websites. Our Website does not respond to “do not track” requests from browsers, but several of our third party service providers who utilize these tracking technologies on or Website may enable you to opt out of these advertising practices.
