What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file that websites store on a visitor’s device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. It serves a variety of functions, like enabling us to remember certain information you provide to us as you navigate between pages on the Site.
What cookies do we use?
These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with the Site and the services available through our Site and to use some of their features, such as access to secure areas. Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Site, you cannot refuse them without impacting how our Site functions. You may be able to block or delete essential cookies by changing your browser settings.

Info and Opt-Out: https://albacross.com/privacy-policy/
These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on the Site or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking site such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. The social network will record that you have done this. This information may be linked to targeting/advertising activities.
In addition to cookies, our Site may use other technologies, such as Flash technology and web beacons to collect information automatically.
We may also use flash cookies (which are also known as locally-stored objects) on our Site, which are used on websites for purposes similar to cookies but allow storage of a larger amount of data.
We may also use web beacons (which are also known as pixel tags and clear GIFs) on our Site and in our HTML formatted emails to track the actions of users on our Site and interactions with our emails. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on webpages or within HTML formatted emails. Pixel tags are used to demonstrate that a webpage was accessed or that certain content was viewed, typically to measure the success of our marketing campaigns or engagement with our emails and to compile statistics about usage of the Site, so that we can manage our content more effectively.
You can remove or disable cookies via your browser by referring to your browser’s configuration documentation, since the steps for doing so are usually browser-specific. Removing or disabling cookies might adversely impact your ability to use our Site effectively. Enabling cookies ensures a smoother experience when you use our Site. For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your browser and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
. Some of our advertising partners that collect information about users’ activities on or through the Site may be members of organizations or programs that provide choices to individuals regarding the use of their browsing behavior or mobile application usage for purposes of targeted advertising. You can use the following opt-out options to limit use of your information for interest-based advertising by participating companies:
- Digital Advertising Alliance: https://optout.aboutads.info/
- Network Advertising Initiative: https://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1
- European users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here, selecting the user’s country, and then clicking “Choices” (or similarly titled link).
Some of the third party advertising companies we work with offer their own opt-out options that you can use to limit their use of your information for interest-based advertising, including those listed above. Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms and may not participate in the opt-out mechanisms that we linked above.
If you choose to opt-out of targeted advertisements, you will still see advertisements online but they may not be relevant to you. Even if you do choose to opt out, not all companies that serve online behavioral advertising are included in this list, so you may still receive some cookies and tailored advertisements from companies that are not listed. You can also limit collection of your information for interest-based ads by blocking third party cookies in your browser settings or using privacy plug-ins or ad blocking software that help you block third party cookies. In addition, your mobile device settings may provide functionality to limit use of the advertising ID associated with your mobile device for targeted online advertising purposes. If you opt-out of interest-based advertisements, you will still see advertisements online but they may be less relevant to you. Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms or do not participate in the opt-out mechanisms described above. Even after using these opt-out mechanisms, you may receive interest-based advertising from other companies.
