Advertisements appearing on this Website may be delivered to you by advertising partners, who themselves may set cookies. These cookies allow the advertising vendor to recognise your computer each time they send you an online advertisement, in order to compile information about you or others who use your computer. In doing so, these advertising vendors may collect non-personal data such as your IP address, browser type, your operating system, Web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, and other clickstream data. This information allows the advertising vendor to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy only covers the use of cookies by this Website and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

The owner of this Website has no control over cookies placed by advertisers here or at their website(s). Please visit the privacy policies of those websites for further information.

Advertising Privacy Statement

This Website is affiliated with AdThrive, LLC (“AdThrive”) for the purposes of placing advertising on the Website.  AdThrive uses standard and widely-available tools for the placement and serving of ads, including those provided by Google, Inc. and its affiliates. We publish interest-based advertisements on the Website; that is, ads that are tailored to reflect your interests. To help understand your interests, AdThrive, Google and our other advertising partners will track your behaviour on our website and on other websites across the Internet using cookies.

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.  Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

By using this Website, you consent to the use of such cookies and the sharing of data captured by such cookies with AdThrive, Google, and our other third party partners. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser by visiting: https://adssettings.google.com. You can also opt out of the network cookie using those settings or using the Network Advertising Initiative’s multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at: http://optout.networkadvertising.org. However, these opt-out mechanisms themselves use cookies, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained.
