WHAT IS A COOKIE?
First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by www.opex.com).
Third-party cookies: are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.
Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
HOW TO BLOCK COOKIES
You may also opt-out of certain third-party cookies that we use for ‘targeting’ (as defined below under WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE AND WHY?) by visiting http://www.youronlinechoices.eu or www.aboutads.info Opting out of one or more ad networks only means that those particular members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you. It does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on the Website or other third party websites. If your browser is configured to reject cookies when you visit one of the above referenced opt-out pages, and you later erase your cookies, use a different device or change Web browsers, your preference may no longer be active. Since all of these cookies are managed by third parties, you should refer to the third parties' own website privacy notifications and policies for further information (also, see below for more information about the particular targeting cookies used on the Website).
Additional instructions for blocking certain cookies can found in MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SPECIFIC COOKIES INCLUDING OPTING OUT OF THOSE COOKIES.

Opting out of Google AdWords Remarketing, Eloqua, Facebook Pixels, or LinkedIn will opt you out of those companies' delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads) or from other advertising networks. Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt out of Google’s, Eloqua’s, Facebook Pixels, or LinkedIn's targeted advertising, your opt-out may not be effective.
Google reCAPTCHA: We use reCAPTCHA (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA"). reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data entered on the Website (such as on a contact form) has been entered by a human or by an automated program. This helps to protect the Website from abusive automated crawling and spam. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the Website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the Website visitor enters the Website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the Website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google. The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place.
Our systems do not currently recognize browser ‘do-not-track’ requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies). You also may opt-out of targeted advertising by following the instructions above.
