We may use a variety of tracking technologies to collect information, including without limitation the following:
We may use third-party analytics services, like Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager, to collect, monitor and analyze visitor data (such as Browser Log Data, cookies and other tracking data), and trends for marketing optimization and to increase the functionality of our website and mobile applications. These services may track details about your online activities over time and across different websites. These services may also allow us and others to provide you with targeted advertisements or other content that you may be interested in based on your online activities.
The Google Analytics service tracks and reports website traffic and provides us insight into behavior information relating to visitor age, gender and interests. Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting give us insight into behavior to help us understand browsing behavior and give you a better experience when you visit our website. You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings.
These third-party services have their own privacy policies addressing how they use such information. If you want to prevent your data from being used by Google Analytics, you may wish to take advantage of Google Analytics' currently available opt-outs for the web. We use Google Tag Manager to capture certain non-individually identifiable customer traffic data, including: time spent on page, pdf file downloads, video activity (plays, pauses, percent of video watched, etc.), scroll depth (how far down a webpage a user scrolls), and social actions taken on a website (shares and outbound links to social channels).

“Do not track” is a technology that enables users to opt-out of tracking by websites they do not visit. We do not disclose personal information to third parties for their own marketing purposes. Additionally, we do not collect personal information from your online activities over time and across other websites or online services and we do not allow third parties to use these technologies on our sites.
