Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device, delivering you a personalized experience consistent with your choices and browser settings. This can help make your interactions with us faster and more secure.

OTHER TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGIES
In addition to cookies, we may also use the following technologies to collect information.
|Web beacons and browser web storage||A web beacon is an electronic file that signals when a webpage, advertisement, video, other content, an email, or a newsletter has been viewed. AMI uses web beacons in conjunction with cookies to collect data that helps us better understand how visitors move from page to page within websites.
Browser web storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. When used in “local storage” mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions (for example, so that the data are retrievable even after the browser has been closed and reopened).
|Embedded URLs||We may use a tracking technique that employs embedded URLs to allow use of the Sites without cookies. Embedded URLs allow limited information to follow you as you navigate the Sites but are not associated with Personal data and are not used beyond the session.|
|Embedded Pixels and Similar Technologies.||AMI and our service providers may use embedded pixel technologies for the purposes of identifying unique user visits (as opposed to aggregate hits) and for advertising purposes. In addition, embedded pixels or other technologies may be used in e-mails and our online display advertising to provide information on when the e-mail or ad was opened to track marketing campaign responsiveness; information collected using these technologies may be associated with the recipient’s e-mail address.
The pixel technology used in the Sites enable the synchronization of internal unique identifiers between AMI (AddThis) and our third-party partners to facilitate interest-based advertising. For a list of those third party partners, please click here. Please see the “How to Manage Cookies” section below for opt-out options.
