Tracking, Use of Cookies, Web Beacons and Similar Devices

In order to improve our Products and the App and provide more convenient, relevant experiences to our customers, we and our agents may use "cookies," "web beacons," and similar devices to track your activities. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It functions as your identification card and enables us to record your passwords and preferences. It cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. A web beacon is a small transparent .gif image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the page or email has been viewed. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, and most services that include similar devices are typically initially activated to collect data. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. We do not support browsers' Do Not Track features. You can enable or disable Do Not Track by visiting the preferences or settings page of your browser. We use an access token, similar to a cookie, for certain portions of the Services.
