What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a website. Cookies are used to make the website work well or simply work more efficiently. They are also used for web analytics with the purpose of helping the users optimize their visit on the website. There are two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies:
- Session cookies are created temporarily in your browser's subfolder while you are visiting a website. These cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your internet browser.
- Persistent cookies remain in your browser's subfolder and are activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie. A persistent cookie does not expire when you close your browser, it remains in the browser's subfolder for the duration period set within the cookie's file.

These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

We use Google Analytics cookies to collect information about how visitors use our website. These cookies collect information in the aggregate to give us insight into how our website is being used. We anonymize IP addresses in Google Analytics, and the anonymized data is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. The following table has more information about these cookies.
