Cookies and other Technologies

We may use “cookies” and other technologies for authentication, analytics, performance, functional and marketing purposes. We may also use third-party service providers which use cookies or other technologies to record information about you or your activity. A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on the computer hard drive or memory containing information about the user. You may modify your browser’s settings so that your browser stops accepting cookies or prompts you before accepting a cookie. If you do not accept cookies, you may still use the Platform, but certain areas or features may not function properly.

The information we collect using cookies and other technologies may include your IP address, browser type, device and system information, unique identifier, the web page you visited before accessing the Platform, date and time stamps, crash reports, system activity and other similar information and interactions with the Platform.

We or our third-party advertising providers may also use cookies and other technologies to keep track of your browser so that you will be recognized when you visit other websites where our third-party advertising providers may show you advertisements from us based on your visit to our Platform. Some of these advertisements may be customized to particular products and services that you viewed or they may be based on inferences about products and services that you might be interested in. This is called "interest-based advertising".

You can opt out of these interest-based advertising campaigns by turning off cookies in your browser, as described above. If you opt-out of interest-based advertising you may still see advertisements from us on other websites. However, they will not be customized based on your browsing history on our Platform. You can also opt-out of several third party ad servers' and networks' cookies simultaneously by using an opt-out tool created by the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada or an opt-out tool created by the Network Advertising Initiative.

How do you change your information?

If you have an account, you may review and change personal information which you provided to us by logging into your account and modifying the personal information stored in connection with your account.

Security
