A web browser cookie is a small text file that is sent by a website to your computer or mobile device where it is stored by your web browser. Web browser cookies may store information such as your IP address or other identifier, your browser type, and information about the content you view and interact with on digital services. By storing such information, web browser cookies can remember your preferences and settings for online services and analyze how you use online services.Tracking Technologies: Web Beacons/Gifs, Pixels, Page Tags, Script
Emails and mobile apps may contain small transparent image files or lines of code to record how you interact with them. This information is used to help website and app publishers better analyze and improve their services.
Tracking Via Mobile Apps
When you use mobile applications, unique identifiers associated with your device (such as the device ID and IP address), your activity within the App and your network location may be recorded. This information may be used to analyze, improve and customize digital services.
We use some cookies and tracking technologies for purposes which are strictly necessary for your use of our Digital Services. These may include, for example, cookies which remember your preferences and settings; which remember information that you may enter online (so that it does not have to be re-entered every time you move to another page); or to keep you logged in to portals that we may offer where you wish this to happen.
These analytics services help us to know how many users we have, which parts of our sites are most popular, what browsers are used (so we can maximize compatibility), the country or region where our users are located, and the demographics and interests of our users. This enables us to better understand who is using our Digital Services and to improve how we present content on the Digital Services.
Google Analytics cookies may retain information for up to two years. For more information about Google Analytics services, please click here.
These cookies enable us to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of the Digital Services may not function properly.
