What’s a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file stored on a website visitor’s computer or mobile device when visiting a website, for the purpose of identifying that browser during interactions on the website. The cookie will help the website recognize the device and enable certain functions. Web beacons and similar technologies act in a comparable manner. We use the term “cookies” to refer to all technologies that collect information in this way.
The website employs two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps our website recognize you as a returning user. A persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by the website when you make a return visit. Session cookies typically last for as long as the browser session (usually destroyed when the user closes their browser).
Here are some useful resources that provide detailed information about types of cookies, how they are used, and how you can manage your cookie preferences: www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
