What are cookies and similar technologies?
Cookies are small text files placed by a website and stored by your browser on your device. A cookie can later be read when your browser connects to a web server in the same domain that placed the cookie. The text in a cookie contains a string of numbers and letters that may uniquely identify your device and can contain other information as well. This allows the web server to recognize your browser overtime each time it connects to that web server.
Web beacons are electronic images (also called single-pixel or clear GIFs) that are contained within a website or email. When your browser opens a webpage or email that contains a web beacon, it automatically connects to the web server that hosts the image (typically operated by a third party). This allows that web server to log information about your device and set and read its cookies. In the same way, third-party content on our websites (such as embedded videos, plug-ins, or ads) results in your browser connecting to the third-party web server that hosts that content. We also include web beacons in our email messages or newsletters to tell us if you open and act on them.
We, and our analytics providers, use these technologies in our websites, apps, and online services to collect personal data when you access and use our services, including personal data about your online activities over time and across different websites or online services. This data is used to store your preferences and settings, enable you to sign in, analyze how our websites, apps, and services perform, track your interaction with the site or app, develop inferences, combat fraud, and fulfill other legitimate purposes. We and/or our providers share the data we collect or infer with other providers for these purposes, as described in the “Disclosure of personal data” section below.

We offer everyone in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands choices about their personal data. Please note that your choices may vary depending on the laws that apply where you reside. If you have questions, please contact us using the information below. Your options include:
You can choose whether to receive optional communications from us by email, SMS, and telephone related to new jobs or roles that become available. If you receive these optional email or SMS messages from us and would like to stop, you can do so by following the directions in that message or by contacting us as described in the “Contact Us” section below.

Visiting our Personalized Ads and Offers article.
Visiting our Analytics and Reporting article.
You can also take steps to manage targeted ads through your system settings. Resetting your device’s mobile advertising ID does not opt-out your device from targeted ads, but data associated with your prior mobile advertising ID will not be linked to your new identifier through the device. Also, if you reset your device’s mobile advertising ID your prior opt-out choices will not apply to the new ID. To maintain your opt-out choices, you’ll need to opt-out again. These opt-outs will not impact “contextual” advertisements (e.g., a sporting goods advertisement on a sports-themed website) or ads we place on our own websites and apps based on your activity on those sites and apps.
Browser or platform controls
Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can go to your browser settings to learn how to delete or reject cookies. If you choose to delete or reject cookies, this could affect certain features or services of our website. If you choose to delete cookies, settings and preferences controlled by those cookies, including advertising preferences, may be deleted and need to be recreated.
Global Privacy Control
Some browsers and browser extensions support the “Global Privacy Control” (GPC) or similar controls that can send a signal to the websites you visit indicating your choice to opt-out from certain types of data processing, including data sales and/or targeted advertising, as specified by applicable law. When we detect such a signal, we will make reasonable efforts to respect your choices indicated by a GPC setting or similar control recognized by regulation or otherwise widely acknowledged as a valid opt-out preference signal.
Do Not Track
Some browsers include a "Do Not Track" (DNT) setting that can send a signal to the websites you visit, indicating you do not wish to be tracked. Unlike the GPC described above, there is no common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal; therefore, our websites do not respond to browser DNT signals. Instead, you can use the range of other tools to control data collection and use, including the GPC, cookie controls, and advertising controls described above.
Mobile advertising ID controls
iOS and Android operating systems provide options to limit tracking.
Email web beacons
Most email clients have settings that allow you to prevent the automatic downloading of images, including web beacons, which avoid the automatic connection to the web servers that host those images.
Notice and consent
We provide applicants with a notice about the personal data we collect, how it will be used, and with whom we disclose personal data.
We will get consent from applicants for the collection and use of personal data where such consent is required by applicable law. Failure to provide necessary personal data may disqualify an applicant from employment or restrict participation in certain plans or programs.

If we deny your request, residents of certain states are entitled to submit an appeal. Instructions for how to submit your appeal will be included in our response explaining why we denied your request.
