WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHY DO WE USE THEM

Cookies are small pieces of text used to store information on web browsers. They are used by many websites to store and receive identifiers and other information on devices, such as a mobile phone or computer. We use cookies and other similar technologies, such as HTML5 web storage and local shared objects (collectively “cookies”) in order to provide a better experience for you and to generally improve our website, applications, and other services. We use cookies for the purpose of storing and retrieving session information in our online systems, and for analyzing traffic on our website. They make navigation easier and increase the user-friendliness of a website. We also may use information to present you with resources that are matched to your preferences and to manage and track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.

We also may include tracking pixels, which are small graphic images, in our marketing communications to determine engagement. These cookies may be set by us or by third parties with whom we have partnered to assist in our marketing efforts.

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default; however, you may be able to delete cookies yourself through your browser’s cookie manager. To do so, please follow the instructions provided by your web browser. Please note that disabling cookies will reset your session, disable auto-login, and may adversely affect the availability and functionality of our website, applications, services and other resources we can provide to you.

Functional Cookies

Functional cookies enable us to improve the usability and performance of our website and applications and ensure they work as intended.

We also use cookies to provide customized services. You may disable any of these functional cookies as described above; but if you do, various functions of the website and applications may be unavailable to you or may not work as intended.

Performance Cookies

These cookies, also called analytics cookies, collect information about how users use our website. Analytical cookies help us, for example, to identify especially popular areas of our website. In this way, we can adapt the content of our websites more specifically to user needs and thereby improve what we offer you. For example, MD Analytics uses Google Analytics to track anonymized usage statistics for the site. This data is used to analyze how frequently people visit the site, how the website is found, and which pages are most frequently viewed. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a website user. This information is combined with data from thousands of other users to create an overall view of website data use and is never identified individually or personally. We use Google Analytics to improve user website experience and to understand how our media campaigns work. These cookies are only used to identify ways to improve the website.

You can opt out of cookies from LinkedIn on your LinkedIn settings page and recommend you read their Cookie Policy for more information.
