COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES POLICY
1. COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES AND HOW WE USE THEM
Our online services use the following categories of Cookies:
Some of these companies may combine information they collect from our site with other information they have independently collected relating to your web browser’s activities across their network of websites. These companies collect and use this information under their own privacy policies.
These companies, their privacy policies and the opt-outs they offer can be found in the table below in “Cookies and Tracking Technologies Used on WPEC’s Site.”
3. YOUR COOKIE CHOICES AND HOW TO OPT-OUT
Most browsers are initially set up to accept HTTP cookies. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, and how to disable existing cookies. For more information about HTTP cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the informatio
n at www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
You may also opt-out of additional third-party advertising networks by going to the Network Advertising Initiative’s Website at www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
We are not responsible for the effectiveness of any such opt-out options. California residents may be entitled to know the effects of opt-out options under California Business & Professions Code Section 22575(b)(7). The effect of an opt-out, if successful, will be to stop targeted advertising, but it will still allow the collection of usage data for certain purposes (e.g., research, analytics and internal site operation purposes).
Controlling the HTML5 local storage on your browser depends on which browser you use. For more information regarding your specific browser, please consult the browser’s website (often in the Help section).
For more information about Flash “cookies” or local storage objects or LSOs, and how to disable them, you can consult the information provided at http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/526/52697ee8.html.
Please note, however, that without HTTP cookies and HTML5 and Flash local storage, you may not be able to take full advantage of all our online services features and some parts of the online services may not function properly.
Please note that rejecting Cookies does not mean that you will no longer see advertisements when you visit our online services.
4. COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES USED ON WPEC’S SITE
We provide the chart below as a courtesy, but we are not obligated to maintain or update it. We are not responsible for third-party sites and their privacy practices as it relates to opt-outs from tracking activities. The following third-parties that collect information from you on our site have given us notice that you may obtain information on their policies and practices and in some instances opt-out of certain of their activities:
Google Advertising cookies
We use Google Ads Cookies to track and record events on our website and apps for analytics, audience creation, and retargeting of advertisements. For further information, see https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en
We use Twitter Pixels to track and record events on our website and apps for analytics, audience creation, and retargeting of advertisements. For further information, see Twitter’s privacy statement.
A cookie (sometimes referred to as local storage object or LSO) is a data file placed on a device. Cookies can be created through a variety of web-related protocols and technologies, such as HTTP (sometimes referred to as “browser cookies”), HTML5, or Adobe Flash. For more information on third-party cookies that we use for analytics, please review the table in Section 4 of this Cookies and Tracking Technologies Policy.
Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our online service’s pages and messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a page or e-mail can act as a web beacon.
Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to HTTP cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.
An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the online service, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third-party service provider is active only while you are connected to the online service and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.
ETAG, OR ENTITY TAG
A feature of the cache in browsers, an ETag is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned. Used in this manner ETags are a form of device identifier. ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the consumer blocks HTTP, Flash, and/or HTML5 cookies.
UNIQUE DEVICE TOKEN
For each user that accepts push notifications in mobile apps, the app developer is provided with a unique device token (think of it as an address) from the app platform (e.g., Apple and Google).
UNIQUE DEVICE ID
The unique series of numbers and letters assigned to your device.
