Cookie Policy

The Basics of the Cookie

“Cookies” are small (less than 4K) datafiles which are set automatically on the hard drive of your computer in the course of accessing websites on the Internet. Cookies are intended to make your use of the website more efficient and to enable certain features of the webpages, which would otherwise remain unavailable. Cookies do not communicate executable code to your computer and cannot be used to transmit malware.

Some cookies are “sessional cookies” (functioning only for the duration of the user access of the webpage, and then automatically deleted), others are “persistent cookies” (cookies which remain on the hard drive of the user until deleted). Cookies may also be “third party cookies” (originating from a domain other than the domain directly accessed by the user), or “Flash cookies” (which may be automatically re-set on the hard drive after they have been intentionally deleted by the user).
