What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small files containing a string of characters that we may store on your computer or mobile device when you access the Sites. When you access the Sites again, the cookies allow us to recognize your browser. Cookies may store your preferences and other information but cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies set by a website owner (in this case, IPG) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable us to provide third party features or functionality through the Site (i.e. advertising, social media functions and analytics).
