We differentiate between cookies that are essential for the technical features of the Services and, in certain instances, optional analytics cookies.
These are cookies that the Services need in order to function, and that enable you to move around and use the Services and features. Without these essential cookies, the Services will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide the Services or certain features you request. Examples of where these cookies are used include: to determine when you are signed in; to determine when your account has been inactive; and for other troubleshooting and security purposes.
Analytics cookies allow us to understand more about how many visitors we have to our Services, how many times they visit us and how many times a user viewed specific pages within our Services. Although analytics cookies allow us to gather specific information about the pages that you visit and whether you have visited our Services multiple times, we cannot use them to find out details such as your name or address. We use Google Analytics. For more information about Google Analytics, please refer to "How Google Uses Information From Sites or Apps that Use Our Services", which can be found at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, or any other URL Google may provide from time to time. We also use the Meta Conversion Pixel to measure the effectiveness of our advertising in an aggregated manner.
Depending on your location and applicable laws, we may give you the option of adjusting your preferences with regard to the categories of cookies we use. When this option is available, you can configure your personal settings on our Cookies Banner under “Settings” or via other options that may be available on the relevant Service. If you use a different device to access the same Services, you may need to manage your settings for each separate device you use.
Do Not Track ("DNT") is a privacy preference that visitors can set in their web browsers. When a visitor turns on DNT, the browser sends a message to websites requesting that they do not track the visitor. At this time, we do not respond to these signals.

If you choose to assert any of these rights under applicable laws, we will respond within the time period prescribed by applicable law. Please note that you may be located in a jurisdiction where we are not obligated to fulfill a request and that many of the above rights may be generally subject to exceptions and limitations. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, unduly burdensome, risk the privacy of others, or would be very impractical to honor. If we are not able to provide the requested information or make the change you requested, you will be provided with the reasons for such decisions. Depending on where you are located, you may have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority.
If you are based outside of the United States and would like to exercise any individual rights you may have, please submit your privacy requests by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your request must: (i) provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected Personal Information or an authorized representative of that person; and (ii) describe the request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. We will only use Personal Information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
