WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a small file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded onto a device when the user accesses certain websites. Cookies aid in recognizing your device each time you visit a website by collecting information. Similar to cookies, Log Files and Web Beacons generally function the same way.

Some cookies must contain personal information to function properly – such as remembered contact details that help you to more quickly register for an upcoming webinar by pre-filling the registration form. Other cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how a user arrives at our websites, or a user’s general location.
