What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file stored on your device by your Internet browser at the request of a website you are visiting. Text values are stored in this file, which are then sent back to the originating website on every subsequent visit.

Static Cookies are stored on your device for a defined length of time until removed or until they expire. These cookies are very common, and are often used to remember your preferences between visits, or to recognize your device as distinct from another device.

Session Cookies are temporary files created to maintain a session between your Internet browser and our server. Session Cookies are deleted when you close your browser. Always finish your session by logging out and closing your browser, which in most modern browsers will ensure that your session cookie is deleted.
