Cookies are small text files containing a user’s settings and other data used by websites, and are stored on the user’s computer. They are transmitted as parcels of text sent by a server to a Web client (usually a browser) and then sent back unchanged by the client each time it accesses that server.
Other cookies may be stored on your computer’s hard drive by third party vendors when this website uses referral programs, sponsored links, social media plugins or other common applications. Such cookies are used for conversion and referral tracking and typically expire after 30 days, though some may take longer. No personal information is stored, saved or collected and all cookie data may be deleted at any time by clearing your browser’s cache.
