The cookies help us understand how effectively we’re doing this and limit the number of times you see our promotions. We also include links to social networks such as Facebook, and if you interact with this content, the social networks may use information about your interactions to target advertising to you on their websites.

We audit the types of cookies that are used on our Site, but it is possible that the services we use may make changes to their cookie names and purposes. Some services, particularly social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, change their cookies regularly.
