Cookies

When you use our Services, we and our third party partners use session and persistent cookies, pixel tags, local storage, local shared objects, and other similar technologies (collectively, “cookies”) to collect information about your browser or device. By using our Services, you consent to our use of cookies and similar technologies.

The tracking technologies we use include:

  • Session and Persistent Cookies. Cookies are small files that are placed on your computer when you visit a website. CfRN may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Cookies may be used to store a unique identification number tied to your computer or device so that you can be recognized as the same user across one or more browsing sessions, and across one or more sites. Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but can be configured not to do so or to notify the user when a cookie is being sent. If you wish to disable cookies, refer to your browser help menu. If you choose to disable cookies, however, some of the functionality of our Services may be impaired.
  • Web beacons. On certain web pages or in e-mails we send to you, we may utilize a technology called a “web beacon” (also known as an “action tag” or “clear GIF technology”). We may use web beacons, for example, to help determine which email messages sent by us were opened and whether a message was acted upon. Web beacons also help analyze the effectiveness of websites by measuring, for example, the number of visitors to a website or how many visitors clicked on key elements of a website.
  • Local Storage and Other Tracking Technologies. We may also use other kinds of technologies, such as Local Shared Objects (also referred to as “Flash cookies”) and HTML5 local storage, in connection with the Services. We also may use unique identifiers associated with your device, such as mobile ad identifiers. These technologies are similar to the cookies discussed above in that they are stored on your device and can be used to store certain information about your activities and preferences. However, these technologies may make use of different parts of your device from standard cookies, and so you might not be able to control them using standard browser tools and settings. The method of disabling HTML5 local store will vary depending on your browser.

We and third parties may use the above technologies to learn which portions of our Service are useful and which need improvement, among other things. You can disable cookies as provided in the Your Rights and Choices section below.
Any or all of the above-described technologies may be used on our behalf by our service providers and such information may be stored, retained and shared with our service providers.

Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms. Third parties may collect information about consumers’ online activities over time and across different websites, including when you use the Services. Certain web browsers may offer “do-not-track” signals or other mechanisms to provide consumers the ability to exercise choice regarding this collection. Currently, we do not respond to such signals.

Security

We have in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to protect the information we collect. However, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our Services, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet.
