What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters stored on your computer or mobile device. These files uniquely identify your browser or device.

Cookies allow a site or service to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. Cookies can help understand how people use the site or service. They can help navigate between pages, remember preferences, and improve your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

The four most common categories of cookies are: “Strictly Necessary”, “Performance”, “Functionality”, and “Targeting”. We use all categories of cookies on the site except for “Targeting” cookies; we do not use this type of cookie.

You can find out more about each cookie category below.

  1. Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are essential. They enable you to move around the site or service and use its features, such as accessing logged in or secure areas.
  2. Performance Cookies. These cookies collect information about how you have used the site or service. For example, they may store your unique username, placing less strain on our infrastructure.

The information these cookies collect may be anonymous. They are not used to track your browsing activity on other sites or services.

How long will cookies stay on my device?
