How does our website interact with cookies placed by other websites?

Our website may read cookies placed by other websites. This can be done to identify if a visitor has been redirected to our site or whether a visitor clicked on an advertisement. Cookies placed by other websites may also identify that you have redirected to those sites from our website, as is the case with our marketing affiliates. We are unable to control cookies placed by other websites.

When you navigate to our website, you will see a popup at the bottom of the page. You can select “Accept All” to accept all cookies. Alternatively, you can select “Cookie Preferences” to select which cookie types you would like to accept.

Separately, you can modify your browser settings. Most browsers accept cookies by default, but you can block or restrict cookies on your device or delete existing cookies by adjusting your browser preferences. Each browser handles this a bit differently, so you should review your browser’s specific preferences. In some cases though, blocking or restricting cookies may mean that sites don’t function properly or don’t remember credentials you entered previously.
