WPG and our partners use technologies such as “cookies” and “web beacons” to automatically collect information from you when you use our products. We use cookies and similar technologies to analyze trends, administer and track the use of our products, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, remember user settings, improve the functionality of our products, and understand product and Internet usage.

We may also use cookies to help us offer you information about products, programs, or services that may be of interest to you. In some cases, we also use cookies to enable relevant advertising on websites owned by third parties.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer or device by configuring your browser to not accept cookies or to notify you when a cookie is being placed on your hard drive.

Your Internet browser and mobile device may allow you to adjust your browser settings so that “do not track” requests are sent to the websites you visit. We respect your wishes and will not track user activity once “do not track” signals have been activated. However, our third party service providers may not respond to “do not track” signals.

Our products may include social media features, such as the Facebook “Like” button. These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on our website and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our websites. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing them. We encourage you to read each company’s privacy policy.
