A browser cookie is a small file usually used to persist data between browser sessions by saving certain pieces of Non-PII. It allows the browser to "remember" what you did the last time you visited a particular site. They can also be used to create long-term records of your browsing history.
Third-party browser cookies are browser cookies that are not maintained or managed by the Company. Advertisers usually own and maintain these third-party browser cookies and these advertisers use this third-party cookie information to track your browsing history across many websites, all of which have ads by the same advertiser. When your data is combined with the browsing history of other users, the third-party advertisers can detect trends and determine on which sites their advertising is returning the most value for them.
The Company may use browser cookies and allow third parties to use browser cookies for the purposes of providing you with a better user experience by remembering information from your previous sessions and for analyzing user traffic, trends, and other useful statistical information.
