EU-US / Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework
We and certain affiliates comply with the Privacy Shield Framework, as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access and enforcement of personal information transferred from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.
While we do not rely on Privacy Shield for cross-border data transfers, we have certified to the U.S. Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles and are subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. If there is any conflict between the terms in this Privacy Notice and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall prevail.
When we receive personal information under the Privacy Shield and then transfer it to a third-party recipient acting as our agent, we have certain liability under the Privacy Shield. If the agent processes the personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles, we will be responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
If you are a resident of the European Union or Switzerland and are not satisfied with the manner in which we have addressed your concerns about our privacy practices, you may seek further assistance, free of charge, from our designated Privacy Shield independent recourse mechanism, TRUSTe. You may have the option to invoke binding arbitration for the resolution of your complaint under certain circumstances.

When you visit our Sites, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies, web beacons and similar technologies.
What are cookies and similar technologies?
Cookies are very small text files or pieces of code, which often include a unique identifier. When you visit a website, the website will request to store this text file on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Other information gathered through cookies may include the date and time of visits and how you are using the particular website.
We also use similar technologies to cookies known as “web beacons”, “pixels” or “tags”. These technologies do a similar job to cookies, allowing website operators to count page views and understand how visitors interact with and respond to certain content on a webpage.
We use “first party cookies” and “third party cookies” in connection with our Sites. First party cookies are cookies placed by us to collect information about you. Third party cookies are cookies placed by third party website operators. Information about you collected by those third-party cookies will be shared with the relevant third party.
You should be aware that applications you use to access our Sites, such as your website browser, may also place cookies on your device when visiting our Sites, or other websites. An example of this would be where you sign into Google Chrome using a Google Account. We do not have control over these third-party cookies, so you will need to manage these cookies in the settings of the relevant applications.
What types of cookies do we use?
We may use one or more of the following types of cookies on our Sites:
Essential Cookies – Essential cookies are those cookies which a website could not operate without. Essential cookies include cookies such as login cookies and shopping cart cookies.
Functionality Cookies – These cookies recognise you when you return to a website, remember your preferences and provide enhanced, more personalised and other non-essential features.
Analytics/Performance Cookies – Analytics cookies, along with other information, allow websites to calculate the aggregate number of people using a website and which features of a website are most popular. This information is generally used to improve the website and the way visitors are able to move around it.
Advertising Cookies – Advertising cookies (also known as targeting cookies) help us to deliver our adverts when you visit other websites, such as news websites. This is known as ‘retargeting’. This technique helps to ensure that the ads you receive are more relevant to you and your interests. These cookies help to measure the effectiveness of an ad (for example, by reporting whether you have clicked on it) and can also limit the number of times that you see an ad (for example, if you see it twice but don’t click on it, you may not see it again). These cookies are usually placed by advertising networks that we and other advertisers work with to deliver ads. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other ad networks to show you relevant ads.
How long do cookies last?
All cookies have expiration dates that determine how long they stay in your browser:
Session Cookies – these are temporary cookies that are placed on your device during your browsing session and then expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser.
Persistent Cookies – these are designed to last for a pre-defined period of time, which varies depending on the nature of the cookie. Persistent cookies stay in your browser until they reach their individual expiry date, or until you manually delete them (see section below).
How do I refuse, block, or delete cookies?
To the extent required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent before collecting information using cookies or similar automated means. For more details on cookies and similar technologies and blocking or deleting cookies for a wide variety of browsers, visit All About Cookies.
