Cookies are small text files sent by a web server to your browser when you access the Website. Cookies are classified into two major categories: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporarily stored on your device while you are visiting a given Website. They are deleted once you leave the Website. Persistent cookies, on the other hand, remain on your device for a more extended period of time specified in the cookie file, after you leave the Website. This type of cookie remains available for retrieval by the web server when you return to visit the website.
Cookies are further classified into “first party cookies” and “third party cookies”. First party cookies are those sent to your browser by the server of the Website you are visiting. Third party cookies are those sent to your browser by servers other than the Website you are visiting (e.g., the server of an advertising network to which the Website you are visiting is subscribed).
We may use other cookies which operate on our website which include but are not limited to these categories.
