An HTTP cookie, commonly referred to as a browser cookie or web cookie, is a small piece of data (a text file containing a string of characters) that a server places in your browser or device when you visit a website. When you revisit a web page, the cookie is sent back to the server to recognize your browser, enabling stateful sessions and making online experience easier.
We use both session-based and persistent cookies on our website for various purposes. A session cookie is a type of cookie with no expiration or maximum-age directives and is deleted when you close your browser. A permanent or a persistent cookie expires at a specific date or after a specific length of time (relative to the browser, not the server). Cookies are classified as first-party or third-party depending on whether they're associated with the domain of the website you visit.
The following section details the various cookies we use and their classifications. We run a scan on our website using our cookie scanning tool to maintain the most up-to-date list possible.
