Cookies Policy

  Effective Date: August 20, 2013
Our website uses cookies for performance and functionality. This policy explains the cookies that we use and our reasons for using them.

Why do DRG Web Sites use “cookies” and other tracking technologies?

  • A “cookie” is a file that our webserver may send to your computer when you access a Decision Resources Web site. This file is then stored on your computer. After you have entered Personal Information into a form or data field on a Decision Resources Web Site, Decision Resources may use cookies and certain other technologies to allow that Web site to “remember” your personal preferences, such as sections of that Web site that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID.
  • Passive information collection technologies can make your use of DRG Web Sites easier by allowing Decision Resources to provide better service, customize sites based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve DRG Web Sites. Certain features of DRG Web Sites may not work without use of passive information collection technologies.

What types of cookies and other tracking technologies do DRG Web Sites use?

  • DRG Web Sites use “session” cookies. Session cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your Web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used, for example, to improve navigation on our Web sites, block visitors from providing information where inappropriate (the site “remembers” previous entries of age or country of origin that were outside the specified parameters and blocks subsequent changes) and to collect aggregated statistical information.
  • DRG Web Sites may use “persistent” cookies. Persistent cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g., passwords), helping to determine what areas of the Web site visitors find most valuable, and customizing the Web site based on your preferences on an ongoing basis.
  • DRG Web Sites may use third party cookies, such as “advertising” cookies. These cookies are used to provide you with interest-based offers or ads, or to provide site analytics.
  • DRG Web Sites may use “web beacons” (also known as internet tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, and invisible GIFs) A web beacon is a tiny graphic on a web page or in an e-mail message that is used to track pages viewed or messages opened. Web beacons tell the Web site server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. Web beacons may be placed on online advertisements that bring people to our site and on different pages of our site. Web beacons provide us with information on how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted.
