Technically, cookies are called "HTTP cookies". There are other technologies that can be used for similar purposes, such as HTML5 Local Storage and Local Shared Objects (LSO). We may use HTML5 local storage, LSO, and similar technologies to authenticate you, track the information you provide to us, and remember your preferences (see points above). When you use a developed application offline, we may store information about how you use the site on your device and send it to our server the next time you connect to our service online.
Web beacons and embedded scripts are two other technologies we use in websites, some emails, and advertising.
Web beacons (or "tags") are small amounts of programming code contained in web pages, emails, and advertisements that notify us (or companies that help us run our business) when these web pages, emails, or ads are viewed or clicked .
