A “cookie” is a piece of data stored as a file on the user’s computer hard drive containing information about the user’s web browser activity and particularly the domain from where the user has navigated to our site from and how long the cookie will remain on the user’s hard drive. The cookie will not look into your computer and obtain information about you or read any material on your hard drive.
Cookies are used on our site to enhance and simplify the user’s visit and that is achieved through the use of both persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies stay on your computer permanently until you delete them and session cookies delete themselves automatically when you close your browser. For example, we set a persistent cookie whenever an application has been started and this allows the user to access his or her application upon future visits. If a user rejects the cookie, he or she may still use our site but will not have access to these enhancements and will be required to re-enter your personal information during those future visits. We also use session cookies to track what pages on our site were visited and for how long so we can identify the most popular content. We also have relationships with third parties who may also set cookies during your visit to our site in order to help us enhance the experience for future users of our site. For example, our site uses Google and Adobe Analytics cookies to evaluate visitors’ use of our site which are used to compile reports for us on activity on our site. These cookies do not store any personal information about you.
We will obtain your consent for specific cookies before using any that collect personal information about you.
Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
