Do we use ‘cookies’?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your browser that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with our Services, and improving them based on that information. They also help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use the Services.
