What is a Cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make
websites work, or work in a better, more efficient way. For example, they can recognize you and remember important information that will make
your use of a website more convenient (e.g., by remembering your user preferences).
What Cookies do we use?
your use of the Site to personal information obtained about you.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential to the Site in order to facilitate our log-in process and enable you to move around it and
to use its features. Without these cookies, we may not be able to provide certain services or features, and the Site will not perform as smoothly
for you as we would like.
In some circumstances, we may use functionality cookies. Functionality cookies allow us to remember the choices you make
while browsing the Site, and to provide enhanced and more personalized content and features, such as customizing a certain webpage, remembering if
we have asked you to participate in a promotion and for other services you request, like watching a video or commenting on a blog. In order to permit
your connection to the Site, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, potentially including your IP addres
s, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the Site from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device
identifier assigned to that device ("UDID"), geolocation data, or other transactional information for that device. All of these features help us to improve
your visit to the Site.
We may, in certain situations, use Adobe Flash Player to deliver special content, such as
video clips or animation. To improve your user experience, Local Shared Objects (commonly known as “Flash cookies”) are employed
to provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your device, but they are managed through
an interface different from the one provided by your web browser. This means it is not possible to manage Flash cookies at the browser level in
the same way you would manage other cookies. Instead, you can access your Flash management tools from Adobe's website directly. Adobe provides
comprehensive information on how to delete or disable Flash cookies at http://www.adobe.com/security/flashplayer

Analytics cookies collect information about how you use the Site, for instance, which pages you go to most. The information allows
us to count our audience size, see the overall patterns of usage on the Site, help us record any difficulties you have with the Site
and show us whether our advertising is effective or not.
