Google Analytics uses “cookies,” which are small text files placed on your computer, to collect anonymous, non-personal data, including browser type, domain names, referring website, landing page, web pages viewed, time spent on a web page, and links clicked. This data is used for such purposes as identifying web pages visited most often to improve our Site and providing you a better experience on our Site. Please review Google Analytics’ terms of use and privacy policy to learn more about how Google Analytics may collect and use information. If we ever combine non-personal data with personally-identifiable information, the combined information will be treated as personally-identifiable information. We may also use cookies to enhance the functionality of our Site such as storing your preferences. Cookies also may be served in connection with social media links embedded on our Site.
If you do not want to use cookies, you can remove them from your computer’s hard drive or set your browser to block them or to send an alert before a cookie is stored on your computer.

Data Subject Rights
Data subjects in the European Economic Area and other jurisdictions may have rights in relation to their Personal Data which include:
• Right to rectification. Data subjects may request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete Personal Data. 
• Right to withdraw consent. Data subjects may at any time withdraw their consent to the processing of their Personal Data carried out by us on the basis of their previous consent. Such withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on such previous consent.
• Right to make a subject access request (SAR). Data subjects may request in writing copies of their Personal Data. However, compliance with such requests is subject to certain limitations and exemptions and the rights of other individuals. Each request should make clear that a SAR is being made. You may also be required to submit a proof of your identity and any payment permitted by law, where applicable. 
• Right to object to processing including automated processing and profiling. We do not make automated decisions about data subjects. However, we may rely on information provided by third parties such as credit reference agencies which may score data subjects on the basis of automated decisions. Profiling may be carried out for business administration purposes, such as monitoring trends in user visits of our website and in order to deliver relevant ads to users’ devices. We will comply with valid objection requests unless we have a compelling overriding legitimate ground for the continuation of our processing or we have another lawful reason to refuse such request. We will comply with each valid opt-out request in relation to marketing communications.
• Right to erasure. Data subjects may request that we erase their Personal Data. We will comply, unless there is a lawful reason for not doing so. For example, there may be an overriding legitimate ground for keeping the Personal Data, such as, our business record retention obligations that we have to comply with. 
• Restriction. Data subjects may request that we restrict our processing of their Personal Data in various circumstances. We will comply, unless there is a lawful reason for not doing so, such as, a legal obligation to continue processing your Personal Data in a certain way.
• Right to data portability. In certain circumstances, data subjects may request the controller to provide a copy of their Personal Data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have it transferred to another provider of the same or similar services. We do not consider that this right applies to our services. However, to the extent it does, we will comply with such transfer request. Please note that a transfer to another provider does not imply erasure of the data subject’s Personal Data which may still be retained for legitimate and lawful purposes.
• Right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority. We suggest that data subjects contact us about any questions or complaints in relation to how we process their Personal Data. However, each data subject has the right to contact the relevant supervisory authority directly.
