2. WHAT ARE COOKIES AND HOW ARE THEY USED?
Cookies are small data files of text which are stored on virtually every web site you visit and are stored by your web browser on the computer, phone, tablet or other device that you use. Cookies can help a web site remember your preferences, help us learn which areas of our web site are useful and which areas need improvement. Sometimes they may provide you with targeted advertisements or personalized content. Cookies are enabled when bits of code (web beacons, clear gifs and tags) are placed on a web site to enable them to read and place cookies. A first-party cookie is one you may receive directly from us when you visit our site, whereas a third-party cookie is one that you have received from another party, such as Facebook or Google. We do not control what third parties do on other sites. We do work with certain third-party providers such as Facebook or Google to permit their cookies to function through our Site so we can learn more about your web experience and better personalize our services for you.
This type of cookie may be stored by the web browser on your device. The expiration of a persistent cookie is determined by the creator of the cookie and will remain there and transmit data to their server each time the user visits the web site until they remove it. Advertisements are typically used for this purpose.
This type of cookie is created on your device when you visit a web site. It stores information you enter and tracks your activity. The cookie is deleted after you leave the web site or close your browser. An example of a session cookie is the shopping cart on an e-commerce site which stores items until you go to the checkout page.
