Third-party Analytics Providers and Ad Servers
We may use third-party vendors to perform certain services on behalf of us or the Service, such as hosting the Service, designing and/or operating the Service’s features, tracking the Service’s activities, using sharing technology that allows users to share content on this Site through social media, and analytics. We may provide these vendors with access to user information, or they may directly collect your information to carry out the services they are performing for you or for us. Third-party analytics and other service providers may set and access their own tracking technologies on your device, and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, potentially including personal information. We are not responsible for those third-party technologies or activities arising out of them.
We may also work with certain third parties to provide us with information regarding traffic on the Service to serve advertisements elsewhere online, and to provide us with information regarding the use of the Service and the effectiveness of our advertisements.

Our cookies are not used to send spam. We store cookie information in aggregate form and use the aggregate information to make improvements to the Service, or in internal reports on Service activity. You may opt out of allowing cookies to be placed on your computer. Refusing cookies disables our ability to include information about your visit in our regular monitoring of Service traffic.
Cookies and Similar Technology Policy
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small amount of data sent from a web server to your browser and stored on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our website. This type of information is collected to make the Service more useful to you and to tailor your experience with us to meet your special interests and needs. We use and store this information to provide you with more personalized and customized online services and to make our site more convenient, useful, valuable and appealing to you.
We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first-party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our website; and (2) third-party cookies, which are served by service providers on our website, and can be used by such service providers to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites.
Cookies We Use
The Service may use the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:
TYPE OF COOKIE
These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our website and to enable you to use some of its features. Without these cookies, the services you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.
These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make when you use the Service, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make on other parts of our website, which you can customize. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit the Service.
Analytics and Performance Cookies
These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our website and how users use the Service. The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor. The information is aggregated and anonymous. The information gathered may include the number of visitors to the Service, the websites that referred them to our website, the pages they visited on our website, what time of day they visited our website, whether they have visited our website before and other similar information.
We use Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own cookies. You can find more information about Google Analytics cookies here, and about how Google protects your data here. You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of our Site by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here.
Targeted and Advertising Cookies
These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising that is more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, third-party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show advertisements that we think will be relevant to your interests while you are on third-party websites.
Social Media Cookies
These cookies are used when you visit any public VillageMD page. A social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn can record that you have visited this page, and could use this information to serve you relevant ads that are in compliance with platform advertising policies.
If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept cookies from a Service for any of the purposes described above, you can typically instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to remove or stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. In order to do this, consult your browser’s technical information (instructions are usually located within the “settings,” “help,” “tools” or “edit” facility). Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings.
If you do not accept our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience or not be able to use all portions of the services or all functionality of the services.
In addition, we may use pixel tags (also referred to as clear GIFs, web beacons or web bugs) on the Service to track the actions of users on website. Pixel tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly in web pages. Pixel tags also allow us to send email messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether emails have been opened, for example, to ensure that we are sending messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user.
“Do Not Track” signals
Some internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services you visit. We currently do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit www.allaboutdnt.com
