Cookies are small text files that the websites you visit place on your device. Each subsequent visit sends cookies back to the website or to another website that recognizes those cookies. They are used to keep websites functional and to operate more efficiently, as well as to provide certain information to the owners of the websites.
Strictly necessary cookies are essential for the functioning of the site and cannot be disabled in our systems. They are usually set only in response to your actions that involve a service request, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in, or filling in forms.
Analytics and performance cookies allow us to record visits and track traffic on the site so that we can measure and improve the performance of our site. We or a third party (e.g., Adobe, Google, Akami, Brightcove, Qualtrics) can set them, helping us identify which pages are most and least visited and to understand user navigation on the site.
Functional cookies enable the site to offer improved and personalized features. We or a third party, such as Adobe, whose services we have added to our pages, can set them.
Advertising/targeting cookies can be set on our site by our advertising partners such as Adobe. The purpose of setting these cookies is to build a profile of your interests and to show you relevant ads on other sites.
“Social media” cookies are set by social networks (e.g., Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram) that we have added to the website to enable you to share content with your friends/followers.
These cookies can track your activity across other websites and thereby build a profile of your interests. This can affect the content and messages you see on other websites you visit.

The duration that cookies will remain on your device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. A persistent cookie will be stored in your web browser and will remain valid until a specified expiry date unless you delete it before the expiry date. On the other hand, a session cookie will expire at the end of your web session when the web browser is closed.
You can control and manage cookies in various ways. Keep in mind that removing or blocking cookies can affect your user experience, and parts of this website may not be fully accessible.
You can also change browser settings to manage and amend cookies. Detailed information on how to do this can be found at: http://www.aboutcookies.org/.
Tracking technologies related to your email communications activity may be used to determine whether you have read, clicked, or forwarded a specific email communication in order to make it more useful and interesting to users. If you do not want to confirm whether you have opened, clicked, or forwarded our communication, you need to unsubscribe, as it is not possible to send these emails without disabled tracking. Registered users can update their settings at any time or unsubscribe by following the instructions in the individual email communication received from us.
We will occasionally update the Cookie Use Terms, and we will mark any changes with the date at the top of the page, which will be valid from that date. We recommend that you periodically review these Cookie Use Terms to be informed about our cookie usage practices.
