- Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your device’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our website and services, while others are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at our website and services. There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies.
- Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your device when you close your browser or turn off your device. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the website and services. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our website and services.
- Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device after you have closed your browser or turned off your device. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity.
- Flash Local Storage Objects. We may use Flash Local Storage Objects (“Flash LSOs”) to store your website preferences and to personalize your visit. Flash LSOs are different from browser cookies because of the amount and type of data stored. Typically, you cannot control, delete, or disable the acceptance of Flash LSOs through your web browser. For more information on Flash LSOs, or to learn how to manage your settings for Flash LSOs, go to the Adobe Flash Player Help Page, choose “Global Storage Settings Panel” and follow the instructions. To see the Flash LSOs currently on your computer, choose “Website Storage Settings Panel” and follow the instructions to review and, if you choose, to delete any specific Flash LSO.
- Clear GIFs, Pixel Tags and Other Technologies. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web and application pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our website and services to, among other things, track the activities of website visitors and application users, help us manage content, and compile statistics about website usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
- Cross-Device Use. We and our third party service providers, including Google, may use the information that we collect about you (whether directly from our website, from our mobile applications, through your device(s), or from a third party) to help us and our third party service providers identify other devices that you use (e.g., a mobile phone, tablet, other computer, etc.). We, and our third party service providers also may use the cross-device use and other information we learn about you to serve targeted advertising on your devices and to send you emails. To opt-out of cross-device advertising, you may follow the instructions set forth in the Third Party Ad Networks section below. Please note: if you opt-out of these targeted advertising cookies, your opt-out will be specific to the web browser, application, or device from which you accessed the opt-out. If you use multiple devices or web browsers, you will need to opt-out each browser or device that you use.
- Do-Not-Track. Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies); you also may opt-out of targeted advertising by following the instructions in the Third Party Ad Network section.
- Our Users in the United States may opt out of many third-party ad networks through the use of various trade association websites. Please refer to Ads and Emails for more information. You may also go to the Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA") Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") Consumer Opt-Out Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by NAI members.
- Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will opt you out from those companies' delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising through our website, services, or on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you attempt to exercise your right to opt out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA's website at www.aboutads.info or the NAI's website at www.networkadvertising.org.
Ads and Emails
RSA and our partners may use information about your visit to this and other websites. The information could include pages you visit, the items you view, or your responses to our ads and emails. This information allows us to make the RSA ads you see more relevant to you. This is referred to as interest-based advertising. For this purpose, RSA has selected partners who are members of self-regulatory associations such as, the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB), the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA).
To enable you to opt-out of interest-based advertising delivered by partners working with RSA, or to customize your experience on RSA websites, please visit Manage Cookies webpage hosted by Evidon to opt out. If you opt-out, you may still see RSA ads on RSA websites and other websites, but those ads will not be customized to you by RSA or our partners.
Please note that if you clear your cookies, or if you use a different browser or device, you may need to reset your opt-out selections.

COVID-19 Screening Tool and Thermal Vision Camera
In order to help reduce the risk of COVID-19 infections and keep our communities safe, all RSA employees, contingent workers, and visitors must complete a daily health survey and pass a thermal body temperature screening in order to gain access to RSA premises. The thermal vision camera measures your body temperature on an anonymous basis and RSA does not retain your body temperature. If your body temperature is equal to or above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you will be denied entry and/or asked to leave RSA premises.
The health survey screening tool, available via an app or web portal, collects your name, email address, and certain health data you voluntarily provide. This information will be retained on your device and not shared with RSA unless you self-report that you are COVID-19 positive. In that case, the tool will notify the appropriate RSA team, and your email address will be retained for up to 30 days (subject to local laws) so RSA may contact you as it takes appropriate action to protect the health and safety of individuals at RSA physical locations. Your COVID-19 positive status will be shared with the RSA team and applicable public health authorities (as required by law). Your status will also be shared on an anonymous basis with potentially infected individuals for contact tracing purposes.
