Cookies make websites work betterCookies are small text files placed on your computer by websites or sometimes by emails.

We use two types of cookies on our websites

Session Cookies are used by the server to store information about user page activities so users can easily pick up where they left off on the server's pages. By default, web pages really don't have any 'memory'. Cookies tell the server what pages to show the user so the user doesn't have to remember or start navigating the site all over again. Cookies act as a sort of “bookmark” within the site.
Persistent or tracking Cookies are employed to store user preferences.
You can disable and/or delete cookies via your browser if you wish to, but this will restrict the functions that you're able to carry out on our sites. For more information about how to disable cookies in your browser please visit the About cookies website.
