3. COOKIES, SIMILAR SITES, AND THIRD PARTY SERVICES
Our Website uses certain monitoring and tracking technologies (such as cookies, web beacons and pixels).
A cookie is a small text file that is stored in a web browser directory by a website or an advertisement related action. Our Website uses two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are created temporarily in your web browser directory while you are visiting a website and are deleted once you leave the website. Persistent cookies remain in your web browser and are activated again once you visit the website that created that specific cookie. A web beacon is a small file used by a website or an advertisement-related action to keep track of your navigation through a single website or a series of websites. A pixel is a small line of code which is used by a website or an advertisement-related action to assign online activities to a computer or browser.
We use these technologies in order to ensure proper operation of our Products and Website, collect information and ensure information security. Although our collection of such information is not used to personally identify users, we are still committed to giving you the opportunity to exercise your choice of opting out from our collection of such information. For removing cookies and other technologies used on our Website, please refer to the “Opt-Out Option” sub-section below.
We will not use the above technologies to collect Personal Information without obtaining your permission, unless where we are permitted to do so under applicable privacy laws.
3.2 Opt-Out Option
Please note that your browser enables you to disable all cookies (if you do not know how to do this, check out the “Help” file of your browser), however, this may interfere with your use of the Website or other internet websites.
If you use a new computer, upgrade or change web browsers or take any action which results in the deletion of the “opt out” cookie, you will need to perform this opt-out process again upon any such change.
For more information about cookies including how to set your internet browser to reject cookies please go to www.allaboutcookies.org.
3.3 Third Party Websites and Services
Our Products may recommend third party websites which the Product determines may be of interest to you (“Similar Sites“).

We do not have control over such Similar Sites or Third Party Services, including their information collection and use practices. We are not responsible for their privacy practices or policies. We therefore recommend that you review the privacy policies of Similar Sites and Third Party Services before providing them with your Personal Information.

In these cases we will look after your information at all times in a way that is proportionate and respects your privacy rights and you have a right to object to processing as explained in “your rights” section below;
5.4 our use of your Personal Information is necessary to comply with a relevant legal or regulatory obligation that we have (e.g., the disclosure of information to law enforcement or tax authorities).

7. HOW WE PROTECT AND STORE YOUR INFORMATION
7.2 Retention of your Personal Information
