1. WHAT ARE COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES AND HOW DO WE USE THEM?

A. When you visit our Site, we collect usage information sent to us by your computer, mobile, or other access device that tells us how you are using the Sites ("usage information"). We use tracking technologies (including cookies, flash cookies, web beacons/GIFs, embedded scripts, e-tags/cache browsers) to collect usage information. We may use tracking technologies for a variety of purposes, including:

Strictly-Necessary. We may use Cookies/tracking technologies required for system administration to prevent fraudulent activity, improve security. We are not required to obtain your consent to Cookies that are strictly necessary.

Analytics and Performance-Related. We use information collected through the use of cookies/tracking technologies to evaluate our website's effectiveness and to improve your experience when you visit it. Cookies are not used by us to identify who you are or send you targeted advertising. For example, we may use cookies/tracking technologies to do any of the following:

  • To determine the number of visitors to our website and to identify how visitors move around the site and, in particular, which pages they visit. This allows us to improve our website and our services.
  • To determine from where in the world our website is being visited so that we can ensure sufficient coverage.
  • To collect information, where available, about your computer or mobile device for system administration purposes, such as your IP address, operating system and browser type.

Functionality-Related. We may use tracking technologies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited the website before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify the features in which you may have the greatest interest.

Targeting-Related. We may use tracking technologies to deliver content, including ads, relevant to your interests on our online service and third-party sites based on how you interact with our advertisements or content as well as track the content you access (including video viewing). Further information on this, and your opt-out choices, is below.

B. We may also collect password information from you when you log in, as well as computer and/or connection information. During some visits we may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, time spent on certain pages and page interaction information.

C. Our goal is to collect and use only that information that we think is required for our legitimate business interests, in order to better understand your interests and improve your experience of using the Site.

D. Your use of our services indicates your consent to such use of Cookies and Tracking Technologies. For further information about our use of Cookies and your opt-out choices, see Controlling And Deleting Cookies And Tracking Technologies. See here for examples of each type of cookies/tracking technologies used on the Site.

2. USE OF COOKIES BY OUR ANALYTIC PARTNERS

OTD uses Google Analytics session cookies to provide meaningful reports about site visitors. Google Analytics cookies do not collect personal information about website visitors. Cookies set via our website include those listed below in Section 3.

A few additional important things you should know about our use of tracking technologies (cookies):

  • We offer certain features that are available only through the use of tracking technologies.
  • We use both session and persistent tracking technologies. Tracking technologies (e.g., cookies) can either be persistent (i.e., they remain on your computer until you delete them) or temporary (i.e., they last only until you close your browser). You are always free to decline tracking technologies if your browser permits, although doing so may interfere with your use of the Site. Refer to the help section of your browser, browser extensions, or installed applications for instructions on blocking, deleting, or disabling tracking technologies such as cookies.
  • We encode and protect the tracking technologies that OTD sets, so that only we can interpret the information stored in them.
  • You may encounter tracking technologies/cookies from our third party service providers, that we have allowed on our site that assist us with various aspects of our web site operations and services, such as Google Analytics.
  • You also may encounter tracking technologies from third parties on certain pages of the websites that we do not control and have not authorized. (For example, if you view a web page created by another user, there may be a cookie placed by that web page.)

3. CONTROLLING AND DELETING COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

4. DEFINITIONS

Cookies A cookie (sometimes referred to as local storage object or LSO) is a data file placed on a device. Cookies can be created through a variety of web-related protocols and technologies, such as HTTP (sometimes referred to as "browser cookies"), HTML5, or Adobe Flash.

Web Beacons Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as "1×1 GIFs" or "clear GIFs") may be included in our online service's pages and messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a page or e-mail can act as a web beacon.

Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to HTTP cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence.

Embedded Script An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the online service, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third-party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the online service, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

ETag, or entity tag A feature of the cache in browsers, an ETag is an opaque identifier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource content at that URL ever changes, a new and different ETag is assigned. Used in this manner, ETags are a form of device identifier. ETag tracking may generate unique tracking values even where the consumer blocks HTTP, Flash, and/or HTML5 cookies.
