You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device's acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.

Heat Map and Tracking Software. We may use various types of tracking software ("Tracking Software") to track mouse movement, scrolling, time spent on a page/screen, pages/screens visited, and clicks in order to better understand our users' needs and to optimize the use of our Services. The most common form of Tracking Software is referred to as a "heat map" and the forms of heat maps include scroll maps, click maps, and movement maps. Heat maps are graphical representations of data where values are depicted by color. Users hereby specifically agree to our use of Tracking Software and heat maps.
Our Tracking Software may capture screen shots of users' mouse movements, scrolling, and clicking habits which helps us understand what users want, care about, and do when using our Services by visually representing their clicks, taps and scrolling behavior. Some of the reasons why we use heat map software are as follows: to see if Users are reaching important content or failing to see it, to find and use a page's main links, buttons, opt-ins, and calls to action ("CTAs"), to see if users are getting distracted by non-clickable elements, and to compare usage against mobile, tablet and desktop devices.

These offers will display as varying product banners presented to you while browsing. We may also partner with third parties to manage our advertising on our webpages.
