Browser Cookies

Browser cookies are pieces of data stored on your computer that allow us to identify your browser software the next time you visit our website, and to provide us with information about pages viewed and how you navigated to our site (e.g., web search or link). Cookies can be used for website functionality, security, marketing, analytics, and ad operations.
