How We Use “Cookies” and Other Data Collection Tools
Why are cookies important for the use of our Web Site?
Types of Cookies
Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies. This Web Site uses both persistent and session cookies.
A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which allows us to collect and analyse (on an anonymous basis) traffic and use of this Web Site, monitor the system and improve operating performance, for example, store your preferences to enhance your subsequent visits. It will not be automatically deleted when the browser is closed but is stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiration date (unless deleted by the user before the expiration date).
A session cookie is essential to ensure the correct functioning of this Web Site and is used to manage registration/login and access to reserved features. It is stored temporarily during a browsing session and will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
It is also important to be aware that some cookies (which are generally session cookies) are what is known as strictly necessary. Strictly necessary cookies enable you to move around the Web Site and use features which you have explicitly requested. You can disable other forms of cookies while allowing strictly necessary cookies - see "Your Cookies Choices" below.
Clear GIFs, pixel tags, and other technologies. In addition to cookies, we may also use other means of passively collecting non-personally identifiable data about your use of our Web Site, such as through the use of “clear GIFs” (small pieces of data that may be embedded in images on our Web Site that enable us to track your usage of our web sites) and analysing “click stream” data (the virtual trail you leave behind while browsing the Internet and viewing our web sites). We use clear GIFs and click stream data to gather data about your visit to our Web Site and in connection with emails to track response rates. The data may include information about your device, such as your IP address, but does not identify you by name. Blocking cookies will prevent clear GIFs from tracking your activity, and also prevent us from collecting certain other information, such as your IP address; but we still obtain a record of a visit. In addition to the information we collect from cookies, from clear GIFs, through the analysis of click stream data, and any other means we may employ to collect non-personally identifiable information about you or your visits to our Web Site, we may also obtain anonymous information which you provide to us online -- for example, when you use our tools and calculators.
Your Cookie Choices
You can enable or disable cookies by adjusting your browser settings. This allows you to reject the placement of all cookies (except strictly necessary cookies). You can also delete cookies which have already been placed on your device.
Please remember that disabling or deleting some or all cookies may prevent some web services (including on this Web Site) from functioning correctly, and may lead to a less smooth or less personalised browsing experience.
You should visit the "Help" section of your browser for how to manage your cookie settings, or follow the links below:

Opting-out of Third Party Ad Networks
You may opt out of many third-party ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by NAI members.
Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will opt you out from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA’s website at www.aboutads.info or the NAI’s website at www.networkadvertising.org.
