When you visit our site, open our e-mails, or view our services online, we or an authorized third party may send you a cookie. Cookies are small text files located in your browser directory that may be placed on your computer, laptop, mobile phone, tabled or other device. When a website is accessed, a cookie that is placed on your device will send information to the party that has placed the cookie. Cookies are extremely common and used on a number of websites. Each cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value (usually a unique number). For a more thorough explanation of what cookies are and how they operate, please visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
Cookies allow a website owner to do useful things; for example, a cookie would permit a website owner to find out whether a device (and probably its user) has visited the website previously.
