We use the embeddable video player from Vimeo, Inc. to play video content on our website. The vimeo player uses first-party cookies that are considered essential to the video player experience. No third-party analytics or advertising cookies are set when the video player appears on our site, unless (i) the website visitor is logged in to their Vimeo account and (ii) the user who embedded the video has not implemented the DNT Parameter.
