What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is sent to a browser when you access this website. This website uses cookies or other similar technologies, such as pixel tags. This website does not require you to use cookies, but it is possible that certain services may not function properly if you choose to refuse to receive a cookie.

Why do website developers use cookies?

Cookies make the interaction between users and websites faster and easier, and help to improve websites. Without cookies, a website could not remember a user's preferences or registration details for a future visit.

Websites use cookies mainly because they save time and make the browsing experience more efficient and enjoyable. Cookies can also enable websites to monitor their users' web surfing habits and profile them for marketing purposes.

What cookies do we use?

We use three types of cookies: strictly necessary, performance, and marketing. None of these cookies gather personal identifiers like name, username, email address, mailing address, or phone number.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential for the operation of our website and use of its features. For example, they may:

  • Check if a user has closed the Cookie Notification bar at the top of the site.
  • Verify that when you submit a form that it originates from you and not a fraudulent source.

We also use session cookies to ensure a more enjoyable and consistent user experience from your entry point into this website. The session cookie is available only during the course of the browser session; the information is not sent to or stored on a computer's hard drive. Closing the browser or logging off will invalidate the session cookie. We also use machine cookies, which do remain on a computer hard drive, to gather aggregated, non-identifiable website statistics through the website analytic services. No personal information is collected using this technology.

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how our website is used. For example, they allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the website.

Our website analytic and performance services providers include (but are not limited to) the following:

Marketing Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver advertising that is more relevant to you and your interests. They may be used to help measure effectiveness of advertising campaigns or to limit the number of times you see an advertisement.

In connection with such activities, this website collects or receives information including, but not limited to, your IP address, device type, date and time of visit, browser type, and activities. This information is collected or received by or shared with third-party vendors who assist us with these activities.
