A cookie is a small file typically consisting of a string of letters and numbers that is sent by a web server to a web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer), and stored by the browser. This small file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and to identify users returning to a website. In essence, cookies are small text files that are placed on your device by websites that you visit or certain emails that you open. The cookies used on our sites do not contain any personally identifiable information about you. We are committed to protecting your personal information.
Cookies can 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, effectively when the web browser is closed.
