Cookie Policy

This website uses cookies to store information on your computer. This policy explains how we use cookies and may be amended from time to time without notice. By using this site you agree to the placement of cookies on your computer in accordance with the terms of this policy. If you do not wish to accept cookies from this site please either disable cookies or refrain from using this site.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a text-only string of information from a website that is stored through your browser on your device so that the website can recognize you when you revisit and remember certain information about you. This can include information such as which websites you have visited, choices you have made from menus, specific information previously entered into forms, as well as the time and date of your visit and certain information about your device itself.

Types of Cookies

There are two main types of cookies:
Session Cookies are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session; that is, when you leave the site or close your web browser. Session cookies allow the website to recognize you as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently. For example, session cookies are used to remember that a user has added items to an online shopping cart.
Persistent Cookies are stored on your device between browsing sessions and are stored until they expire or are deleted. Persistent cookies allow websites to “recognize” you and retain user-specified preferences and present a custom-tailored web browsing experience to you.
In addition to session cookies and persistent cookies there may be cookies used to provide us or a third-party with additional data.

Our use of Cookies

We use session cookies to:
Help us maintain security and verify your credentials while you use the website as you navigate from page to page. This enables you to avoid re-entering identifying information each time you enter a new page.
We use persistent cookies to:
Help us recognize you as a unique user when you return to our website so that you do not have to input your credentials multiple times as navigate between pages or services.
Remember your customized user preferences such as time zone or preferred landing page widgets.
Collect and compile anonymous, aggregated information for statistical and evaluation purposes to help us understand how consumers use this website and to help us improve the structure and performance of the website.
Many cookies are designed to give you optimal use of this website. For example, we use cookies to enable you to improve your experience with our site such as when a cookie is used to recognize your web browser and version which supports specific technology features.
