What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order, for example, to make their websites or services work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider are called “first-party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies”. Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as analytics). The third parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.
We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our site to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of Visitors, and we refer to these as “performance” or “functionality” cookies. Third parties serve cookies through our site for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
Targeted online advertising
We have engaged a third-party service provider to track and analyze both individualized usage and volume statistical information from interactions with our site.
This party uses pixel tags and similar tracking technologies to collect and use certain information about your online activities on our site to infer your interests and deliver you targeted advertisements from CITT and potentially our partners.
How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.
Website Cookie Preference Tool: You can exercise preferences about what cookies are served on our site by visiting our cookie settings preference center, available here: Privacy Settings.
Disabling Most Interest Based Advertising: Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of Interest Based Advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices/ or www.youronlinechoices.com.
Mobile Advertising: You can opt out of having your mobile advertising identifiers used for certain types of Interest Based Advertising, including those performed by us, by accessing the settings in your Apple or Android mobile device and following the most recent published instructions. If you opt out, we will remove all data about you and no further data collection or tracking will occur. The random ID we (or our third-party partners) had previously assigned to you will also be removed. This means that if at a later stage, you decide to opt-in, we will not be able to continue and track you using the same ID as before, and you will for all practical purposes be a new end user to our system.
Do Not Track: Some Internet browsers - like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari - include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, site does not currently process or respond to “DNT” signals. CITT takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard. To learn more about “DNT”, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com/.
