This information may include Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data, mobile device identifiers and ad identifiers.

Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on our site or to display advertisements based on your web browsing activity use LS such as HTML5 to collect and store information. Different browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5 LS.
