A cookie is a small file generated by our website and saved by your web browser. Cookies are very versatile and can be used to store various pieces of information including one or more of: your browsing experience, website regional/language settings, website security settings, login settings, shopping cart contents, etc.
Browser cookies come in two different flavors: "session" and "persistent." Session cookies are temporary and are deleted when the browser is closed. These types of cookies are often used by e-commerce sites to store items placed in your shopping cart, and can serve many other purposes as well. Persistent cookies are designed to store data for an extended period of time. Each persistent cookie is created with an expiration date, which may be anywhere from a few days to several years in the future. Once the expiration date is reached, the cookie is automatically deleted. Persistent cookies are what allow websites to "remember you" for two weeks, one month, or longer.
You can find more information about the individual cookies we use, and the purposes for which we use them, in the table below:

Most web browsers allow you to view your cookies in the browser preferences, typically within the "Privacy" or "Security" tab. Some browsers allow you to delete specific cookies or even prevent cookies from being created. While disallowing cookies in your browser may provide a higher level of privacy, it is not recommended since many websites require cookies to function properly.
Alternatively, you can visit www.aboutcookies.org which provides directions on how to block or delete cookies on all major browsers.
