What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which generally includes an anonymous and unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your permission from your computer to store this file in a part of your hard drive designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences are set to allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser will only permit a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies that were sent to you by other sites.

This helps us gather feedback in order to constantly improve the site. Cookies do not allow us to gather any personal information about you and we do not store any personal information that you provide to us via your cookies.
