About Cookies

Advertising cookies, for example, allow advertisers to target ads to a user’s interests. They do not contain personally identifiable information, however, preserving user anonymity. Sometimes referred to as third-party cookies, these advertising cookies track navigation and publish ads on behalf of affiliates and third parties.
