You can find those details in this notice by clicking on the above links.

Browser or platform controls
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, as specified by applicable law. When we detect such a signal, we 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 employees and contractors with a notice about the personal data we collect, how we use personal data, and with whom we disclose personal data.
We get consent from employees and contractors 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 employee or contractor from employment or restrict participation in certain plans or programs.
From time to time, we may update this notice to reflect changes required by law or our privacy practices or procedures. When we make material changes to this notice, we’ll let you know by updating this notice and the date at the top of this page.
This Employee and Contractor Privacy Notice does not form any part of any contract of employment.
