COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING MECHANISMS

When you view the Website, OPEX and/or its third-party service provider may store some data on your computer in the form of a ‘cookie’ to automatically recognize your computer when you visit the Website. Cookies can help us in many ways. For example, cookies can allow us to tailor your Website visit to better match your interests. Cookies can also be used to store your password, thereby saving you from having to re-enter the password each time that you visit the Website.

[NOTE:  FOR EUROPEAN UNION VISITORS, PLEASE SEE THE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION AVAILABLE HERE REGARDING OUR COOKIES POLICIES.] 

Disabling Cookies: Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The ‘Help’ portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to the Website who disable cookies may still be able to browse certain areas of the Website, but some features may not function.

Clear GIFs, Pixel Tags and Other Technologies: Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (which may also be known as ‘web beacons,’ ‘web bugs’, or ‘pixel tags’) in connection with the Website to, among other things, track the activities of Website visitors, help us manage content, and/or compile statistics about Website usage. We and our third-party service providers may also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers in order to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.

Third-Party Analytics: The Website uses Google Analytics, which is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google uses cookies to help the website analyze how users use the Website. Special Note to Non-US Users:  If you are based outside of the United States of America, please note that the information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States of America. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the United States of America. On behalf of the Website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity for the Website provider, and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of these cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser as discussed in this Website Privacy Policy. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Website. Furthermore, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

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 in the ‘Third-Party Targeted Advertising Cookies’ section.

Third-Party Targeted Advertising Cookies: We may also use Google AdWords Remarketing and other third parties, including Eloqua, to allow us to continue to show you OPEX advertisements when you visit other portions of the Internet. Google AdWords Remarketing and Eloqua use cookies that are stored on your computer to serve such ads based on your prior visits to the Website.

Opting out of Google AdWords Remarketing or Eloqua 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 or Eloqua’s targeted advertising, your opt-out may not be effective.
