5. Key Concepts
5.1.1. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by https://gia.edu/gia-alumni).
5.1.2. Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.
5.2. Persistent cookies: These cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
5.3. Session cookies: These cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
6.1. Changing your cookie settings. Please note that browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser.

7.5.1. We and our third-party service providers may use Targeting cookies for such purposes as:
- To link to social networks, like Facebook, that may subsequently use information about your visit to our website to provide advertising or other offers that may be of interest to you when you visit other websites

7.5.3. If you are in the EU, you may opt out of certain third-party cookies that we and other websites may use for targeting through the Internet Advertising Bureau at http://www.youronlinechoices.eu or the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) at http://www.aboutads.info. Opting out of one or more ad networks only means that those particular members no longer will deliver targeted content or ads to you. It does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content or ads on our websites or other third-party websites. If your browser is configured to reject cookies when you visit one of the above referenced opt-out pages, and you later erase your cookies, use a different computer, or change web browsers, your preference may no longer be active. Since all these cookies are managed by third parties, you should refer to the third parties' own website privacy notifications and policies for further information (see below for more information about the particular Targeting cookies used on our Site).
