A cookie is a file containing an identifier, a linear sequence of letters and numbers, which is sent by a website server to a browser and stored by that browser. The identifier is sent to the website server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies are either persistent or session-specific online: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until a set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before that date; session-specific cookies, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user's web browsing session, when the browser is closed.
Cookies do not typically contain information that personally identifies the user, but the information we store about you may be linked to information stored in and obtained through cookies.
Cookies may be used by the website server to identify or track users as they navigate through certain pages on our website and to identify those users who return.
We only use session-specific cookies to improve website usability, administration, fraud prevention and security enhancement.
