Use of Cookies and Other Technologies

Like many online services, we may collect and store certain information automatically whenever you interact with our Services. For example, we may collect your IP address, browser and device information, including operating system, application software, and reference site domain name, every time you access or use the website. We may also collect information regarding traffic patterns and usage and mobile application usage data. We may use this information in combination with other information we have about you, including personal information.

We use cookies, which are small data files created by a web server and stored by your browser. We also use pixel tags, which are tiny graphic images, also known as web beacons, action tags, or transparent GIF files. Cookies and pixel tags permit the Services to function properly. For example, we may use cookies and other technologies to store your preferences and provide a personalized experience on the website. In addition, we may use certain technologies to determine whether you have opened an e-mail or clicked on a link contained in an e-mail, and how you use the pages and content in our websites.

We may also use cookies and other technologies to implement analytics tools, including, but not limited to, Google Analytics, that help us understand how the careers page is performing, how you engage with the careers page, and how you interact with our advertisements and communications. The information we collect using Google Analytics, which may be shared with Google, doesn’t include names or contact information, but may include IP addresses, and activity on the careers page. For more information on your privacy choices in connection with Google Analytics, including the Google Analytics Browser Opt-Out Add On, please visit the Google website at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ .

If you do not want cookies to be dropped on your device, you can adjust the setting of your Internet browser to reject the setting of all or some cookies and to alert you when a cookie is placed on your device. For further information about how to do so, please refer to your browser ‘help’, ‘tool’, or ‘edit’ section or see www.allaboutcookies.org. Please note that if you use your browser settings to block all cookies, including strictly necessary cookies, you may not be able to access or use all or parts of the functionalities of our websites.

If you want to remove previously stored cookies, you can manually delete the cookies at any time. However, this will not prevent our websites from placing further cookies on your device unless and until you adjust your Internet browser setting as described above.

Some web browsers may have a “Do Not Track” preference that transmits a “Do Not Track” header to the websites you visit with information indicating that you do not want your activity to be tracked. We do not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals because a uniform technological standard has not yet been developed. We continue to review new technologies and may adopt a standard once one is created.
