What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file of data letters and numbers we store on your browser or your computer or other internet enabled mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.

How can I control or delete cookies?
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Accepting cookies is usually the best way to make sure you get the most from a website. Some people prefer not to allow cookies, which is why most browsers give you the ability to manage cookies to suit you. Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but users can set up rules in their browsers to restrict, block or delete cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more fine-grained control over your privacy. What this means is that you can disallow cookies from all sites expect those you trust. However, this may prevent the user from taking full advantage of our website. You can also delete cookies from your computer or device whenever you like. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your particular browser (or your smartphone or tablet’s manual) to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Many browsers have universal privacy settings for you to choose from.
