For the sake of simplicity and clarity of exposition, these technologies are briefly referred to in this document as “tracking tools,” unless there is reason to differentiate between them.

Some of the purposes for which tracking tools are used may, in addition, require the user’s consent. If consent is given, it can be freely revoked at any time by following the instructions described in this document.
