What is a cookie?
When a user visits a website, a cookie is a file containing a string of letters and numbers that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either “persistent” or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. We use both session and persistent cookies on our website.
Our cookies do not contain any personal information that identifies a user. The personal information that we store about a user when they submit an inquiry or a form on our website may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
