Generally, Cookies do not contain any Personal Information that would identify you. Cookies usually contain a string of text or “unique identifier” which acts like a label. When a website sees the string of text which was set in a Cookie, the website knows the browser is one that it has seen before. The website can then use the information to present you with custom web pages. For example, instead of seeing a generic welcome page, you might see a welcome page with your name on it.

Please note, if you use a different computer, open a new web browser, or delete cookies, the website will treat you as if you have just arrived on the website for the first time and a new cookie will be set on the computer or other device you are on.

First-party Cookies: is a Cookie set by the same domain as the website that you are visiting and whose URL can be found in your browsers address bar.
