WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are small data files that your browser places on your computer or device. Cookies help your browser to browse a website and cookies themselves cannot collect information stored on your computer or in your files.

They also remember your preferences, such as language and region, which remain your default settings when you return to the website. Cookies also enable you to note pages and fill in comment forms.
Some of the cookies we use are session cookies, which are temporary and disappear when you close your browser. Others are persistent cookies, stored on your computer for a longer period of time. These cookies are used to measure traffic to the website and the retention period for the information will not exceed six months, beyond which, the data will be made anonymous.
