We use the information we collect to measure the use of the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors.

We may also use service providers, such as Google Analytics, that may use cookies and similar technologies to collect information about your online activities across this and other sites over time for analytics and other non-advertising purposes such as those described above.  Analytics data collected may also be used by Google and combined with other data for interest-based advertising as described below.  The Google Analytics Advertising Features that we use may include remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, and integrated services with Google AdWords.  To learn more about how Google Analytics collects and processes data and the choices Google may offer to control these activities, you may visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245 and to opt out of Google Analytics you may visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/.  To opt out of interest-based advertising by Google and other companies participating in industry self-regulation, please see below.


Interest-Based Advertising

Additionally, we may partner with third-party service providers that serve advertisements on non-affiliated websites.  Some of those advertisements may be interest-based, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information these service providers collect about your online activities on this Web site and other non-affiliated sites over time.  To opt-out of interest-based advertising by companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance Self-Regulatory Program, you may visit www.aboutads.info/choices.
