A cookie is a small text file that a web server sends to your browser (for example, Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer). A cookie allows a website or server to collect certain limited information about a visitor from a browser.
The cookies we use help us remember you when you reopen the site, what page or pages you are viewing, and any choices you have made. This information allows us to customise the content that appears to you or to prevent certain things, such as a pop-up containing information from appearing to you twice.
We use several different cookies on the website. They range from persistent cookies (remembering your choices) to short-term or session-specific cookies that expire when you close your browser window.
We use social media services on our site to improve visitor interaction (e.g. “Like” or “Share”). If you use these social medias, their cookies may be set through our website and linked to your account with that service provider. Providers, in turn, can use the information to customise certain ads or customise their page views based on how you use their services on our site.
We may use other third-party cookies (such as Google), and to gather and store them using anonymous statistics on site browsing patterns or behaviour to establish the demographic profile of the user. This information is collected in conjunction with other visitor information. It is important to note that a person cannot be identified from this information and that the information is used only for reporting and statistics.
