A cookie is a small text file sent between a web browser and our website's server, and stored by the browser. It can then be used by our servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on our website and to identify users returning to our website.
Cookies do not contain any information that can identify a person, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
