Where we have your permission, we may also use cookies: (i) to deliver content tailored to your interests, as further described below; or (ii) to relate your use of our Site to personal information that you previously submitted, such as calling you by name when you return to our Site. If you do not consent to such cookies, or your browser is set to reject cookies, then your use of the Site may not be as efficient or as enjoyable as it would be if the cookie were enabled.
