1. ABOUT COOKIES
Cookies are small pieces of data stored in a text file that is stored on your computer or device when a browser loads a website. The data is sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. 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.
