In addition, when you visit the Websites, platform and its partners may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies or similar technologies (“Website Navigational Information”).

  12. Cookies – When you visit the Websites, platform’ servers send a cookie to your computer. Standing alone, cookies do not personally identify you; they merely recognize your Web browser.

They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your browser or turn off your computer. Please note that if you disable your Web browser’s ability to accept cookies, you will be able to navigate the Websites, but the functionality and features of the Services may be affected, and you may not be able to successfully use the Services. Similarly, if you disable JavaScript, some features of the Websites may not function properly, and some areas of the Websites may not function at all.
  14. If you have chosen to identify yourself to platform, platform uses session cookies containing encrypted information to be able to uniquely identify you. Each time you log into the Services, a session cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to your account is placed your browser. These session cookies allow platform to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the Services and to process your online transactions and requests. Session cookies are required to use the Services.
  15. platform uses persistent cookies that only platform can read and use to identify browsers that have previously visited the Websites.

Do Not Track – Currently, various browsers – including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to Websites visited by the user about the user’s browser DNT preference setting. platform does not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals with respect to the Websites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. platform takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
