What is a Cookie?

Cookies are an industry standard and most major websites use them. A cookie is a small data file of letters and numbers that are stored on your browser or hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive as a tool to remember your preferences, which helps us improve our website and your experience, see which areas and features of our website are popular, and count visits.

 

There are two types of cookies: Session (Transient) cookies and Persistent (Permanent or Stored) cookies.

Session cookies are erased when you close your browser and do not collect information from your computer. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user. Persistent cookies are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e. they are based on a set expiration date) or until you delete them. These cookies are used to collect identifying information abou the user, such as Web surfing behavior or user preferences for a specific site.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. Please see below on how to disable cookies.

Website Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You can view Google's Privacy Policy here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=US&hl=en.

 

We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. Google Analytics is a tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between webpages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to "remember" what a user has done on previous pages/interactions with the website. Google Analytics supports three JavaScript libraries (tags) for measuring website usage: gtag.js, analytics.js, and ga.js. These JavaScript libraries use first-party cookies to:

  • Distinguish unique users

  • Throttle the request rate

  • Determine which domain to measure

  • Remember the number and time of previous visits

  • Remember traffic source information

  • Determine the start and end of a session

  • Remember the value of visitor-level custom variables

 

To learn more about the individual cookies within these JavaScript libraries and their usage, visit: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage.

These cookies help us understand how visitors arrive at and move around our website in order to improve how it operates, for example by ensuring that users find what they are looking for easily. For more information on how Google uses data collected, visit: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.

To Disable Cookies

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove or reject browser cookies.

To opt out of Google Analytics cookies altogether, get the Google Analytics Opt-Out Add-On here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
