We use cookies (a small text file placed on your computer to identify your computer and web browser), pixels, anonymous identifiers (a random string of characters that is used for the same purposes as a cookie), and other tracking technologies. We use cookies and other similar technologies to analyze use of and improve the Site and Services and as described in the Advertising and Online Tracking and Browsing Session Information Sections of this Privacy Policy. Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent, however, certain features of the Site or Services may not work if you delete or disable cookies. Some of our Service Providers (defined below) may use their own cookies, anonymous identifiers, or other tracking technology in connection with the services they perform on our behalf.

We use Google Analytics on the Site and Services to analyze how users use the Site and Services, and to provide advertisements to you on other websites. For more information about how to opt out of having your information used by Google Analytics, visit

Advertising and Online Tracking

We may allow third-party companies to serve ads and collect certain information when you visit the Site and Services. These companies may use certain information (e.g. click stream information, web browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to the Site and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of interest to you (i.e., for cross-contextual behavioral advertising).  These companies may also collect information about your activities on our Site on your current device and combine it with information about your activities on other websites, mobile apps, and devices. These companies typically collect such information using cookies, server logs, web beacons, tags, pixels, mobile advertising IDs (such as Facebook cookies or Google’s Advertising ID), cross-device linking, and similar technologies. They may match your browsers or devices if you log into the same online service on multiple devices or if your devices share similar attributes that support an inference that they are used by the same person or household. This means that information about your activity on websites or apps on your current browser or device may be combined and used with information collected from your other browsers or devices. These third party partners use this information for our and their own advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes. Our systems do not recognize browser “Do Not Track” signals, but several of our Service Providers who utilize these cookies on our Site enable you to opt out of targeted advertising practices.

Some browsers or browser extensions also allow you to tell websites not to share your information for cross-contextual behavioral advertising through the “global privacy control” signal.

Options you make are device specific.

Browsing Session Information

We use session replay technology on our Site, including without limitation, the Facebook pixel. Session replay technology, also referred to as session playback or user experience (UX) replay, collects information regarding records, and tracks your interactions with a website or application. It then transforms those logged user events (such as mouse movements, clicks, page visits, scrolling, tapping, etc.) into a reproduction of what you actually did on the website or application. We use session replays for quality control, customer service, fraud prevention and security, and marketing purposes. Our session replay technology is owned and operated by a third-party who acts as our service provider. The information collected by this technology may be collected by, transferred to, and stored by our third-party service provider. To learn more about Facebook ads, click here.

If you are located outside of the United States, please be advised that we process and store information in the United States. The laws in the United States may not be as protective of your privacy as those in your location. By using the Site or Services, you are agreeing to the collection, use, transfer, disclosure of your Personal Information, and communications governable by the applicable laws in the United States.

Notice to Residents of the United States

If you are a resident of California, or jurisdictions with similar laws (e.g. Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, Virginia), you may have certain additional privacy rights under the applicable privacy laws in your state (“State Privacy Laws”). This section generally describes those rights and how you can exercise them.  

These rights are not absolute. In some situations we may not be able to process your request. This may include if a legal exception applies. We’ll let you know when or if a right doesn’t apply to you. You will not be discriminated against for exercising a privacy right. Those rights are:

  1. Access: to learn the categories of information we collect and use, and for those in California, the categories of sources of collection and disclosure and the business purpose for collection;
  2. Portability: a copy of (Virginia) or specific pieces of (California) Personal Information collected;
  3. Deletion: to have us delete information we collected from you; and
  4. Correction: asking us to fix your information.

We will also maintain a record of your rights requests.

Please note that if we delete your Personal Information, some of our services will not work the same. For example, your previous opt out requests will not be saved and saved preferences and information will no longer be available. 

Exercising Your Rights

To exercise your rights, submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either: 

Your verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient identifying information (including full name, postal address, and email address) to allow us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected and retained Personal Information, and/or your authority to make such request on behalf of the data subject, and
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

Note that we will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request or to review and comply with the request. 

You may authorize someone to act as your agent and submit a request on your behalf. Due to the sensitivity of such requests, you must verify the agent’s authorization before we will act.  Accordingly:

  • You or your agent must supply proof that the agent is registered with the Secretary of State to act on your behalf; or
  • You or your agent must supply other written permission for a specific agent to act on your behalf, and will use your email address to connect directly with you to verify agent identity and authority.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with Personal Information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm with a level of confidence appropriate to the sensitivity of the information that the Personal Information we have collected and retained in our systems and databases relates to you. 

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us, but if you have an account with us, we may require you to log-in to such an account in order to verify your identity or authority or to provide or delete your information. 

Right to Opt-out of the Sale or Sharing of Personal Information

Residents of certain jurisdictions (e.g., Colorado, Virginia) have the right to opt out of the “sale” or “sharing” of their Personal Information, as such terms are defined under State Privacy Laws.

Under California law, “share” means disclosing your personal information by us to a third party for cross-context behavioral advertising, in exchange for money or anything else of value. Thus, when we use the term “share” under this section, we are using it in the narrow meaning of how it is defined under California law. Other State Privacy Laws do not use the term “share,” but describe the concept as using personal information for targeted advertising. 

The term “sell” has a different meaning under certain State Privacy Laws. For example, under the laws of California and Colorado, “sell” means exchanging your personal information by us with a third party for money or anything else of value, while under Virginia law, “sell” is the exchange of personal information for money only.

Currently, we participate in digital advertising networks to deliver advertising that is tailored to your interests. The participation in certain ad networks can constitute a “sale” or “sharing” of Personal Information under State Privacy Laws. The categories of third parties to whom information may be disclosed in this context is our third party partners (e.g., advertisers and marketing partners and data analytics providers).  

We may “sell” and/or “share” the following categories of Personal Information: 

  • Online identifiers;
  • Geolocation information;
  • Characteristics of protected classes;
  • Internet/electronic activity; and
  • Commercial information; 

You can opt-out of being tracked by these third parties by clicking the “DO NOT SELL OR SHARE MY PERSONAL INFORMATION” link at the bottom of our Site. Please note that your opt-out preferences are website/device specific.

You can also opt-out by broadcasting an Opt-Out Preference Signal, such as the Global Privacy Control (GPC) (on the browsers and/or browser extensions that support such a signal). Note that we will only apply the request to that specific device or browser and only for cookie or pixel based selling and sharing. Thus, you will need to opt out on each browser and device where you use our services. If you clear your cookie history on a particular browser or device, your opt out request will no longer be saved.

To learn more about these advertising practices or to opt out of this type of advertising of your personal data, please visit and to opt out. You can also opt out of the re-sale of your Personal Information by other participants in these digital advertising networks by visiting this site and opting out of each participant’s digital property. Please note that, otherwise, we do not presently exchange Personal Information for money with anyone, nor do we otherwise “share” or “sell” Personal Information, as such terms are defined under applicable State Privacy Laws. Also, we do not currently disclose Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

Right to Opt-out of Profiling 

Residents of some jurisdictions (e.g., California, Colorado, Virginia) – subject to certain exceptions – may have a right to opt out of forms of automated processing performed on Personal Information to evaluate, analyze, or predict personal aspects related to your economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location, or movements (“Profiling”). 

We engage in cookie-based or digital advertising-based Profiling. To opt out of this practice, please follow the instructions detailed above regarding opting out of the sale or sharing of your Personal Information. We do not otherwise engage in Profiling.
