  1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer, tablet, smartphone or other device when you visit a website. Some cookies are functional and enable additional functionality when a user accesses the website (e.g. allows users to save user preferences or language suggestions).  Other cookies are non-functional and allow the website and third parties to tailor messages and advertising relevant to a user’s interests.  We use cookies to keep track of how you use our website and services so we may provide personalized service. 

  1. WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES DO WE USE?

As of May 25, 2018, Meta has temporarily suspended its use of cookies.  Once we resume our use of cookies, we will obtain your affirmative consent as necessary under applicable law, and will update this policy accordingly.

We have used the following types of cookies in the past, and plan to resume using them in the future:

  • Required cookies: Cookies that are required to operate our website and to allow you to navigate the website and use certain features. These cookies are stored for the duration of your visit on our website.
  • Functional cookies: Cookies that allow us to measure how our website is accessed and used so we may improve performance. These cookies are stored for the duration of your visit on our website and we, or a third party on our behalf, may place these cookies.

They may also be used to track your interaction on social media platforms. These cookies allow you to share your opinions, comment on or rate our products or services and chat with our customer service agents.

Furthermore, Meta may collect some information automatically and store it in log files, either directly or through third party analytics providers, such as Google Analytics. This collection may include, but is not limited to: your IP address, browser type and language, device type, referring/exit pages and URLs, other browser history, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, cookie information, the pages you requested and viewed, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of each request you make.

Cookies and pixels allow Google to recognize a user when a user visits the Site and when the user visits other websites. Google uses the information it collects from the Meta Websites and other websites and may share that information with us and other website operators – including, but not limited to, age range, gender, geographic regions, general interests, and details about devices used to visit websites and purchase items. Meta does not link information Meta receives from Google with any of your personally identifiable information, or user data.
