TI sites use the following types of cookies:
We will collect your IP address when you visit TI sites. We may be able to identify where your communication originated and the organization that it is using to access TI sites.
We also work with third party companies, such as web analytics companies, advertisers, or companies working on their behalf. These companies use pixels and cookie technologies to serve the ads that appear on TI or third party websites directly to your browser, based in part on your online activity. These third parties employ cookies to measure and improve the effectiveness of advertisements for their clients, including us. To do so, these companies may use information about your visits to our sites and other websites. This information can also be used for online preference marketing purposes, including providing relevant advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. TI does not have access to or control over cookies or other features that advertisers (e.g., AdRoll, DoubleClick) and third party websites may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third party websites would be covered by their policies.
You can also delete cookies via your internet browser settings. This will delete all of the information associated with that cookie – which means, for TI sites, e.g. that you will not be recognized on your next visit and will have to re-enter any information previously provided.
Another option for cookie control is a browser plug-in, which is a piece of software that can enable additional capabilities to your browser.
Some web browsers may let you enable a “do not track” feature that sends signals to the websites you visit, indicating that you do not want your online activities tracked. This is different than blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a “do not track” feature enabled may still accept cookies. While TI sites at this time do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, such as “do not track” instructions, you can generally express your privacy preferences regarding the use of most cookies and similar technologies though your web browser.
