Cookies and Other Technologies
We may collect information using Cookies. Cookies are small data files stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on the Site. We use two broad categories of Cookies: (1) first party Cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which are used only by us to recognize your computer or mobile device when you revisit the Site; and (2) third party Cookies, which are served by service providers on the Site, and can be used by such service providers to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites. The Site use the following types of Cookies for the purposes set out below:
|Type of Cookies||Purpose|
|Essential Cookies||These Cookies are essential to provide you with services available through the Site and to enable you to use some of its features. For example, they allow you to log in to the Patient Portal and help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these Cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these Cookies to provide you with those services. We do not use essential Cookies to collect information about you for marketing purposes or to track your Internet activity on other websites.|
|Functionality Cookies||These Cookies allow the Site to remember choices you make when you use the Site, such as remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make to other parts of the Site which you can customize. The purpose of these Cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit the Site. We do not use functionality Cookies to target you with advertisements on other websites. You can block these Cookies using your browser settings, but this may mean that we cannot offer you certain services and may prevent us from remembering that you have chosen not to receive a certain service.|
|Analytics and Performance Cookies||These Cookies are used to collect information about traffic on the Site and how users use the Site. The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor. The information is aggregated and anonymous. It includes the number of visitors to the Site, the websites that referred them to the Site, the pages they visited on the Site, what time of day they visited the Site, whether they have visited the Site before, the amount of time spent using the Site, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate the Site more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information, to monitor the level of activity on the Site, and to inform marketing campaigns. We use Google Analytics and other third-party analytics services for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own Cookies. It is only used to improve how the Site works. You can learn more information about Google Analytics Cookies here: https://developers.google.com/analytics/resources/concepts/gaConceptsCookies.

|Flash Cookies||When we post videos, third parties may use local shared objects, known as “Flash Cookies,” to store your preferences for volume control or to personalize certain video features. Flash Cookies are different from browser Cookies because of the amount and type of data collected and how the data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash Cookies.

|Pixel Tags||Pages of the Site and our emails may contain pixel tags (also referred to as web beacons, web bugs, tracking pixels, java tags and clear gifs) that allow us and our service providers to track online movements of Web users, send email messages in a format users can read, and tell us whether emails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that interest our users. They can also be used to collect statistics on the Site and emails (e.g., number of users who have visited a page or opened an email). We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ Personal Data.|
