1. Performance cookies
We allow third parties to set analytics, or performance, cookies to collect and report aggregate information. These cookies provide reporting to us on an aggregate basis and so, do not identify you at all. We use the aggregate reports to understand how our website is used and improve its usefulness to our audiences.
2. Functional cookies
A number of cookies also support how our website functions, identifying your computer or end device on a unique but anonymous basis. These cookies may, for example, remember your language preferences or recognize an individual’s activity within a single session.
We may conduct analyses of user traffic to measure the use of our website and to improve its content. These analyses will be performed through the use of IP addresses and cookies.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES AND ADVERTISING ON OUR SITES
We may use certain demographic information to enable third party ad servers to show you ads based on information about you in your business capacity, for example, your title within a company or the size of that company.
Finally, we ask both ad servers, DoubleClick and Google AdSense, to use their cookies on our website to identify you as you leave and then to show you one of our own ads later, as you visit another site. This relatively simple process is known as re-targeting.
