Use of cookies

Rubicon may use “cookies” in connection with operation of its Websites. Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored on your computer by the Rubicon Website server. Cookies are used for record-keeping purposes—the stored information can be retrieved by the Rubicon Website server when you return to the Website. This allows Rubicon to personalise or regulate the use of the site, and also permits Rubicon to automate the access and data-entry functions of the site (e.g., login information), to store on-line ordering information for purchases you may make while visiting the site, and to tailor the appearance or presentation of the site to your preferences or interests. In general, we do not use cookies to track the navigational habits of identified users without the user’s consent. If you visit our sites to read or download content, much of the information we do collect is statistical only (e.g., the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access our site, and the Internet address of the Website from which you linked directly to our site) and not personally identifiable. We use this information about the number of visitors and their use of the sites in aggregate form to make our sites more useful and attractive to you.

The use of cookies is common in the industry, and they are used at most major Websites. Cookies will not be used to pass any information from your computer except the specific information placed into the cookie from one participating Rubicon Website when the cookie is retrieved by another participating Rubicon Website. You may wish to adjust your Web browser to inform you whenever a cookie is to be used, or to reject all cookies automatically. However, if you elect not to accept cookies, some parts of the Website may not function properly or permit access. For more information on cookies, see
