What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer. It’s stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but to protect your privacy your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Please be aware that blocking cookies may affect the functionality of the website.
