It is because our web pages contain content or ads from third parties, such as videos, news content or ads delivered by other ad networks. Because your browser connects to those third parties' web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties can set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.
These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features,
such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have
asked for cannot be provided.

can also be used to remember changes you have made to the text size, font and other parts of
the web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have
asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. These cookies cannot track your

These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance

Performance cookies used on this website are like
ARCS web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons that we use to help deliver cookies on our websites, count users who have visited those websites and deliver co-branded products. In our promotional email messages or newsletters, we may use web beacons to determine whether you open and act on them.
In addition to placing web beacons on our own websites, we sometimes work with other companies to place our web beacons on their websites or in their advertisements. This helps us develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement on ARCS website results in a purchase or other action on the advertiser's website.
Finally, web beacons technologies enable the analytics providers to set or read their own cookies or other identifiers on your device, through which they can collect information about your online activities across applications, websites or other products.
However, we prohibit these analytics providers from using web beacons on our sites to collect or access information that directly identifies you (such as your name or email address). But you can opt out of data collection by visiting their respective site links.
