Cookies and Tracking Technologies
Most browsers let you remove or reject cookies. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. Please note that removing or rejecting cookies could affect the availability and functionality of our Services.

Do Not Track
Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform or consistent. Given that lack of standardization, we do not currently respond to or honor “do not track” signals or requests from your browser.
