1. Cookies Information
2. What are cookies?
A cookie is a small removable data file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded on to a computer, smartphone or other device when the user accesses certain websites.
Cookies often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer, but it can contain other information as well, such as anonymized Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring and exit websites, operating systems, date/time stamp and clickstream data from our YouTube videos.
In some of our email messages, we may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the DistributionNOW website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page of our website. We track the click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to receive these communications, we do provide an unsubscribe link on all email communications that you can manage your subscription.
