To learn more about how to manage cookies and opt-out of cookies being placed on your device, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html.

- First-Party Cookies: If you do not want cookies placed on your device, you can adjust the settings of your Internet browser to reject some or all cookies and to alert you when a cookie is placed on your device. To do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” settings). While adjusting your browser settings can prevent the future placement of cookies, it does not remove existing persistent cookies.
- Third-Party Cookies: Modern browsers also allow you to block third-party cookies using the steps described above for first-party cookies.
There are several services available that can assist you with managing your cookie preferences, including industry groups, standards associations and tools provided by the cookie providers and social media sites. Please note that Descartes Labs has no affiliation with, and is not responsible for, the below third-party websites.
- Google Analytics: You may download the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
- Online Advertising: You may choose not to receive interest-based advertising. You may use the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) consumer choice tools to apply opt-outs to interest-based advertising and other applicable uses of web-viewing data by DAA participating companies by visiting http://optout.aboutads.info/?c=2&lang=EN#completed. You may also manage your settings through the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) opt-out tool at http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1.
- Do Not Track: You may turn on the Do Not Track (“DNT”) setting in your browser, which will enable your browser to send a special signal to websites, analytics companies, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. To turn on your DNT signal, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com/#adjust-settings. Not all companies will respond to or honor DNT signals. Note that the Descartes Labs Services do not respond to DNT signals.
- Social Media Buttons: With respect to social media “share” buttons, many of these social media sites handle tracking differently depending on whether or not a user is logged in and the preferences selected by users. If you use a social media service and want to protect your browsing privacy, we recommend that you adjust your individual settings for each third-party social media company with whom you have an account, so as to minimize cross-site tracking.
- Web Beacons and Pixels: You may avoid web beacons and pixels by disabling the functionality that allows remote images to load in your email account and by refraining from clicking on links in email messages.
