What are cookies and how do they work?


Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes track information about you.

However, you will not be able to take full advantage of our website if you do so. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means they cannot be used to track your movements around the web.
