What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in text files. These text files are stored on your device when your browser loads websites. They are typically used to keep track of you and your preferences, either for one visit (via a "session cookie") or over multiple visits (via a "persistent cookie"). Cookies ensure a consistent and efficient user experience, and they perform many essential functions, such as user registration and keeping users logged in. Cookies may be set by the site you visit, which are known as "first party cookies." They may also be set by third parties, such as content providers, advertisers, or analytics services on the website ("third party cookies").
Necessary cookies make a website usable by allowing basic functions, such as page navigation and securing areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
This website may contain other tracking technologies known as "web beacons" or "pixels." These are small, transparent images that give us statistics in a way that is similar to how cookies operate. While they are frequently used in combination with cookies, they are not stored on your device in the same way. Thus, if you disable cookies, web beacons might still load, but their functionality will be limited.
