Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

 

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree (unless where the cookies are strictly necessary). Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.

 

There are two types of cookies:

 

  • Session (Transient) cookies: These cookies are erased when you close your browser, and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.

 

  • Persistent (Permanent or Stored) cookies: These cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e. they are based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as Web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific site.
