when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for
example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide
Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, MailChimp)
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 advertising, interactive
content and analytics). The third parties that set these third party cookies can recognise 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 Websites and Services 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 to our Websites, and we refer to
and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalize your experience while
interacting with our Websites and to otherwise improve the functionality of the Services we
provide. We also enable our users to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection
with their use of our Services in order to allow us and our users to track their subscribers.
Finally, third parties serve cookies through our Websites and Services for advertising, analytics,
and other purposes.

Tracking and Analytics:
Google Analytics gathers information allowing us to understand
interactions with our websites and ultimately refine that experience to better serve you.
Facebook and Google/DoubleClick gathers information allowing us make
advertising messages more relevant to you and your interests. They also perform functions
like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly
displayed, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.
