Cookies help us learn which areas of the Website are useful and which areas need improvement. For this purpose, we may also use technologies similar to cookies, such as Flash Local Shared Objects (also known as Flash cookies) or pixel tags.

You can choose whether to accept the use of cookies and similar technologies in general by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you disable cookies and similar technologies, your experience on the Website may be diminished and some features may not work as intended.

What Cookies and Similar Technologies Do We Use?

Below we list the different types of cookies and similar technologies we use  depending on which section of the Website you visit. To the extent any personal information is collected through cookies, our Careers Site Privacy Notice applies and complements this CST Statement.

Analytics Cookies

Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the Website and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Website, help us record any difficulties you have with the Website, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Website, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information to analyze Website traffic, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information.

We also share your device’s physical location, combined with information about what advertisements you viewed and other information we collect, with our marketing partners to enable them to provide you with more personalized content and to study the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. In some instances, you can allow or deny such uses and sharing of your device’s location, but if you do, we and our marketing partners may not be able to provide you with the applicable personalized services and content.
