To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your computer or device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to our site or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read when you return to our site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
Cookies we use on this site can be broken down into four main categories:
Authentication: If you’re signed in to our site, cookies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience.
Preferences: Cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can help you fill out forms on our site more easily. They also provide you with features, insights, and customized content.
Analytics: Cookies help us learn how well our site performs.
For a list of the cookies we use on this site as well as a description of the purpose and the expiration please see table below.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit our site and some services and functionalities may not work.
