In order to make this site work properly and to provide the most relevant products and services to our site visitors, we place small data files called cookies on your device. This policy gives you information about cookies and how to control them for this website.
What is a cookie?
Also known as browser cookies or tracking cookies, cookies are small text files, often encrypted, located in browser directories. They are used by web developers to help users navigate their sites efficiently and perform certain functions. Due to their primary role in improving/enabling the usability or processes of the site, disabling cookies may prevent users from using certain websites.
A cookie is a text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the website. The cookies are then sent back to the home website at each subsequent visit or to another website that recognizes that cookie, in order to develop a record of the user’s online activity. The cookies on this site may be delivered in your own context (set by this site) or third party (set by another website) and may also be set in association with the e-newsletters you receive from us.
Cookies help us improve your experience when using the site. It also helps us understand how people use our site, such as the most popular pages, so that we can better serve our site users.
Standard uses for browser cookies
Website servers set cookies to help authenticate the user if they connect to a secure area of the website. The login information is stored in a cookie so that the user can enter and leave the website without having to re-enter the same login information several times.
Session cookies are also used by the server to store information about activities on the user’s page, so that users can easily find the place where they left off on the server’s pages. By default, web pages do not really have “memory”. Cookies tell the server which pages to show the user so that they do not remember or start browsing the site again. Cookies act as a kind of “marking” on the site. Similarly, cookies can store the order information needed to make shopping carts work instead of forcing the user to remember all the items the user has placed in the shopping cart.
Persistent or tracking cookies are also used to store user preferences. Many websites allow the user to customize the way information is presented through the aspects or themes of the site. These changes facilitate site navigation and/or allow the user to leave some of the user’s “personality” on the site.
Cookie security and confidentiality
Cookies are NOT viruses. Cookies use a simple text format. They are not compiled pieces of code, so they cannot be executed or self-executed. As a result, they cannot make copies of themselves and spread to other networks to run and replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they do not fall within the standard definition of the virus.
Because they store information about a user’s preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and browsing multiple sites, cookies can be used to act as a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products are well aware of this problem and commonly flag cookies as candidates for deletion after standard virus and/or spyware scanning. Ideally, you should install spyware detection applications on your web access devices.
Most browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, expiration, and deletion after a user has visited a particular site. Creating a backup of your computer can give you peace of mind that your files are safe.
