We use ScorecardResearch web tags to collect data such as new versus repeat visitors, timestamp, the URL, and the title of the web page. The ScorecardResearch tagging is not used to identify the user visiting a page. Additionally, the data collected by ScorecardResearch is only used in an aggregated form. In other words, the reports that are created from this data will not say that Computer 1 went from Site A to Site B to Site C. Instead, the reports will always be based on an entire collection of different computers, meaning that the reports will contain information like “67% of the entire internet population went to Site A”, or “35% of individuals who went to Site A also went to Site B.”

Most web browsers allow you to manage your cookie preferences. You can set your browser to refuse cookies, or delete certain cookies. In general you should also be able to manage similar technologies by using your browser’s preferences.
