1. About cookies

1.1 A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

1.2 Cookies may be either "persistent" or "session": a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user, or by instruction of the web browser options, before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire before or at the end of the user session, which is usually when the web browser is closed, unless the web browser options instruct otherwise.

1.3 Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
