WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon”, also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. We refer to all of these and similar technologies as “Cookies” for purposes of this Policy.
