How cookies are used by our sites
On our website we use cookies and similar tools to improve their performance and improve the user experience.
This document explains how this is done.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that a website can put on your computer or mobile device the first time you visit a site or page. The cookie allows the website, or another website, to recognize the device the next time you visit it. Web beacons or other similar files are based on the same principle. We use the term “cookies” in this document to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

There are many functions that cookies perform. For example, they can help us remember your username and preferences, analyze the performance of our site, or allow us to recommend content that we believe is most relevant to you.

Some cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click on “remember me” when you are performing an authentication, your username will be stored in a cookie. Most cookies do not collect information that identifies you, instead they will collect more general information such as how users arrived at our site, how they use it, or the generic location of a user.
