This information also may be appended to your user profile so that we may further tailor this Site to your interests and send offers to you based on such information.

Our advertisers, publishers and other third-party partners also may utilize third-party cookies and other tracking technologies like clear pixel GIFs (i.e., web beacons) to identify you.
