Cookie Notice

Effective Date:

This Notice describes how the CWE™ Program (“the Program,” “we,” “our,” “us”) uses cookies and tracking technologies on its websites (the “Site,” “the Sites”). Like many sites, the Program uses “cookies,” which are small data files that can be sent to your web browser and stored on your computer. Cookies that the Program sets are first-party cookies. Cookies that we allow others to set are called third-party cookies. The Program uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. Cookies also help enable us to improve website performance.

Manage Cookies

Types of Cookies Used on the Sites

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are required to provide content that allows the website to function. We process this information to identify visitors to our site, to authenticate site administrators, to set visitor preferences, to help complete forms, and for security purposes.

Analytics Cookies

These cookies allow us to analyze traffic on the site so that we can measure and improve website performance. These cookies may require your permission before they are activated, depending on your jurisdiction.

We use Google Analytics to measure how users interact with website content. As users navigate between web pages, Google Analytics provides us data, such as applicable URLs, time of visit, time spent on each webpage, type of browser, and type of operating system. With this information, the Program creates, designs, and updates content based on our user interests. In addition, Google Analytics collects indirectly identifiable information, such as users’ IP addresses, unique IDs, and client IDs. Users who do not want their indirectly identifiable information collected during their visit to our website may opt-out of the Google Analytics tracking service at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/ or disable analytics cookies through our Manage Cookies link.

Other Cookie Types

The Program does not use personalization or targeted advertising cookies. These types of cookies are described at the Manage Cookies link. Please note that because these cookies are not used, no cookies will be displayed when selecting the “View Cookies” button.

Your Consent

We request your consent, as required, to use analytics cookies before placing them on your device. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. To enable or disable our use of analytics cookies, please access the Manage Cookies link.

You also may be able to block cookies by activating browser settings that allow you to automatically refuse the placement of cookies. If you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including our strictly necessary cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of our website.

Please note that we may set strictly necessary cookies without your consent.

Recipients of Your Information

We share information about your use of our website with our analytics partners and analysts who may combine this information with other data that you provide to them or that they have otherwise collected through your use of their services elsewhere.

You may refer to our Privacy Policy for additional information about our use of third-party services.

Retention

Cookies and similar technologies exist for different periods of time, depending on their purpose. For example, a session cookie that enables our website to operate, will only exist on your device while you browse our website, but other cookies will remain on your device for longer, such as some analytic cookies, which need to stay on your device so that the website can recognize you when you return.

For more information about the specific cookies we use and how long a cookie remains on your device, please select the Manage Cookies link.

Contact

We update this Notice from time to time for accuracy as our use of cookies may change. The last updated date at the top of this Notice will tell you when we last made changes.

For more information about how we process your personal data, including personal data collected from cookies, please refer to our website Privacy Policy.
