What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit it. A cookie typically contains information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.
Cookies are used to enable certain features (e.g. logging in), to track site usage (e.g. analytics), to store your user settings (e.g. timezone, notification preferences), and to personalise your content (e.g. advertising, language).
The only non-necessary cookies used on this website are those by the Third Party data processor, Google Analytics, as outlined below under Site Visitation Tracking. By using the Website with cookies enabled, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device. We also give you the option to change your mind. If you at one point gave consent to non-necessary cookies on our website, you can always change your mind. Just look for the shield on our website. If you press the shield, your cookie settings will appear, allowing you to always change your settings and reject cookies.
