1. What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely identify your browser or device. What are cookies used for?

Cookies are not dangerous. They are not computer programs and cannot be used to circulate viruses.

Cookies allow a site or services to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. Cookies can then be used to help understand how the site or service is being used, help you navigate between pages efficiently, help remember your preferences, and generally improve your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

There are generally four categories of cookies: “Strictly Necessary”, “Performance”, “Functionality”, and “Targeting”. We routinely use all four categories of cookies on the Service. You can find out about each cookie category below.

  2. Performance Cookies. These cookies collect information about how you have used the service, for example, information related to the unique username you have provided, so that less strain is placed on our backend infrastructure. These cookies may also be used by our backend infrastructure to help us route traffic between servers and monitor the loading times for different people. This may include information about your browser and/or device.
  3. Functionality Cookies. These cookies allow us to remember how you’re logged in, whether you chose to no longer see advertisements, whether you chose to accept cookies on the site and to provide related content to articles you have viewed or to assist with posting and/or sharing content on social media sites.
  4. Targeting Cookies. We, our advertising partners or other third party partners may use these types of cookies to deliver advertising that is relevant to your interests. These cookies can remember that your device has visited a site or service, and may also be able to track your device’s browsing activity on other sites or services other than our own. This information may be shared with organizations outside of our own, such as advertisers and/or advertising networks to deliver the advertising, and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign, or other business partners for the purpose of providing aggregate service usage statistics of aggregate service testing.

We use cookies for the following reasons.

  • To improve your overall experience

As mentioned in section 2. above, we routinely use all of the 4 general cookie categories (“Strictly Necessary”, “Performance”, “Functionality” and “Targeting”). While cookies of these types may not be present at all times on any/all pages, they may be cookies that we either plan on using, or use only in certain aspects of our service.

Most, if not all, of our pages will contain cookies that fall within the “Targeting” and “Performance” cookie categories. The most commonly found cookies for this will be provided by Google Analytics.
