What are cookies and how do we use them?

A cookie is a small text file that is sent by a website to your browser and stored on your computer or device. Among its uses, cookies allow website operators to accumulate useful information, such as whether a user has visited the site before, and to show more relevant or personalized information when using the site.

We use cookies to help with the functioning and operation of our website, to recognize you and help us provide you with better and more relevant service, to maintain the site’s integrity and security, and generally to facilitate the purposes identified in our Privacy Policy. This may include, for example, tracking how people use our website, and collecting information about the devices used when visiting the site. They also allow us to personalize your experience by recording information about your transactions, settings, and preferences during and across your visits.

We may also use certain other technological tools on our website that perform similar or related functions, such as web beacons, tags, and pixels (sometimes also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs).
