HOW WE USE COOKIES

We use cookies and other such similar technologies to collect and store the information we automatically collect about your computer, device, and website usage. A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer.

There are two broad categories of cookies: (1) first-party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, and (2) third-party cookies, which are served by a third-party on our behalf. Our cookies enable us to recognize you when you visit our website and to store your preferences and settings. We use third-party cookies for functionality, performance/analytics, and social media purposes.

To control or delete cookies, change your cookie settings in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser. Users can usually set their browsers to block all third-party cookies, block all cookies, or block specific cookies. Please note that if you choose to block cookies, this may interfere with certain functionality on our website. Also, if you have disabled one or more cookies, we may still use information collected from cookies before you set your disabled preference; however, we will stop using the disabled cookie to collect any further information.

Third parties whose products or services are accessible or linked through the website, including social networking services and third-party articles we have recommended in our blog, may also use cookies or similar tools. We do not control the practices of third-party sites, and their privacy policies govern their interactions with you. We encourage you to read their privacy policies.

HOW WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION SECURE

We take the security of your personal information seriously and use appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal information against unauthorized or unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction, or damage. We also limit access to personal information about you to our personnel who reasonably need access to it to provide product information or product support to you. However, because no security system can be 100% effective, we cannot completely guarantee the security of any information we may have collected from or about you.

HOW LONG WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION

We retain the information we collect for as long as necessary to fulfill a business purpose or comply with a legal request.
