Cookies on our Services

On our Services, cookies do several different jobs. They let you navigate between pages efficiently, remember your preferences, and generally improve your experience on our Services.  They can also help to ensure that advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

The cookies used on our Services can be categorized in four ways: (1) cookies that are strictly necessary; (2) cookies that assist with the performance of our Services; (3) cookies that record functionality requests; and (4) targeting cookies.  Each of these is further explained below.


Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our Services and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of our Services.  Without these cookies, services or information that you have requested, cannot be provided.  These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes.  By using our Services, you agree that we may place these types of cookies on your device.


Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use our Services.  For example, they may collect information on which pages you visit most often or if you received an error message from one of the pages on our Services.  These cookies do not directly collect information that identifies you. When you provide information that identifies yourself, we may use these cookies to provide relevant information on our Services based on information that you have provided and your activities on our Services.  By using our Services, you agree that we may place these types of cookies on your device.


Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our Services to remember the choices that you make, such as your user name, language preference, or the region that you are in.  Our Services then uses that information to provide enhanced features.  These cookies can also be used to remember changes that you have made to text size, font, and other parts of our Services that you can customize.  While the information collected by these cookies is anonymous, these cookies may be able to identify you when combined with other data because they track certain ISP information for your settings.  They do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remembering where you have been on the Internet.  When you choose to make changes to options or settings on our Services, you agree that IHA may place functionality cookies on your device.  By using our Services, you agree that we may place these types of cookies on your device.

Without these cookies, online advertisements that you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.  By using our Services, you agree that we may place these types of cookies on your device.
