What are cookies?
Also known as browser cookies or tracking cookies, cookies are small text files of letters and numbers that we put on your computer if you agree. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website, which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.
Cookies are created when a user’s browser loads a particular website. The website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file. Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this file to the website’s server. Computer cookies are created not just by the website the user is browsing but also by other websites that run advertisements, widgets, or other elements on the page being loaded. These cookies regulate how the advertisements appear or how the widgets and other elements function on the page.
Who drops cookies when you use our website?
Many of the cookies dropped when you use our services are “first party cookies” (meaning cookies placed and read by us directly).
How do you opt-out?
A number of features of our services may not work or will be curtailed from working effectively without cookies. As a result, changing your browser settings to reject cookies may have a negative impact on your ability to use our website.
