Our Cookie Policy

In accordance with European Union law, we inform you that our website will store some information about your preferences on your computer in a tiny file called a “cookie”.
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. A cookie allows a website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time.
You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and set most browsers so that they are not placed. However, if you do this, you may have to manually adjust some preferences each time you visit the site, and some services and features may not work.
Most browsers support cookies, but users can set their browsers to reject and can delete them whenever they want. A third-party website aboutcookies.org has been customized to help you with instructions on how to do this in different browsers.
We use cookies to:
1) identify you as a returning user and count your visits in our traffic statistics analysis;
2) remember your custom display settings;
3) Suggest any recent searches you have performed on our site.
4) Other usability features, including tracking whether you have given your consent to the use of cookies.
Enabling cookies from our website is not strictly necessary for the website to function, but it will provide you with a better browsing experience.
The information associated with cookies is not used to personally identify you and the template data is completely under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.
Other types of cookies may be created after visiting our website. We use Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address) will be transmitted and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to website activity and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if such third parties process information on behalf of Google. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Third-party advertising
We may have third-party advertising companies serving you advertisements when you visit our website. These companies may store information about your visits to our website and other websites in order to provide you with relevant advertisements for products and services.
These companies may use cookies and other identifiers to collect information that measures the effectiveness of advertisements. The information is generally not personally identifiable unless, for example, you provide them with personally identifiable information through an advertisement or email.
Information Collected by Third-Party Advertisers
Cookies allow advertisers to know which ads you see, which ads you click, and other actions you take on our and other sites. This allows advertisers to offer you more useful and relevant ads. For example, if they know which ads are shown to you when you visit our site, they may be careful not to show you the same ads again. They do not associate your interactions with unaffiliated sites with your identity when serving you interest-based advertising.
We do not provide any personal information to advertisers or third party sites. Advertisers and other third parties (including ad networks, advertising companies, and other service providers that they may use) may assume that users who interact with or click on personalized ads or content are part of the group in which the ad or content is targeted at (eg, Pacific Northwest readers who read certain types of articles). In addition, some third-party cookies may provide them with information about you (for example, sites that have shown you ads or demographic information) from offline and online sources, which they can use to provide you with more relevant and useful ads.
