5.1 A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

5.2 Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

5.3 Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal data that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

6. Cookies used by our service providers

6.1 Our service providers use cookies and those cookies may be stored on your computer when you visit our website and do not explicitly opt-out from such tracking.

The analytics service does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 14 months. Reports provided by Google Analytics are used to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. You may opt out of this tracking by clicking “Refuse” when coming to the website or at any time by activating the “Do Not Track” setting in your browser (see section 8 below).
