A browser cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on your device to help websites remember things about you. Other related technologies, such as local storage cookies, Flash cookies, and other identifiers associated with your device, may be used by websites for similar purposes. In this policy, we use “cookies” to refer to all of these technologies.
We use session cookies, which exist only in temporary memory while the user navigates the website. We also use persistent cookies, which expire at a specific date or time instead of when the web browser is closed. In addition, we use third-party cookies. Normally, a cookie is associated with the host domain, and this is called a first-party cookie. A third-party cookie is from any other domain. This sort of cookie typically appears when webpages feature or utilize content from an external website.

|Security||We use these cookies to help identify and prevent security risks. For example, we may use these cookies to identify the user once the user has logged in, for the duration of a session, or to detect authentication abuses, for a limited persistent duration.|
