Cookies Generally

A cookie is a small text file that is downloaded to a users computer when they visit some pages of the Sites. These cookies themselves do not collect any information, the cookies simply store some of the non-sensitive information (like by way of example the URL which the user first came to one of our Sites from) which either you or your browser had already given to us in connection with your use of the Sites.  The cookies are only readable by the Site which issued them so no one else can get that information from the cookie and we do not share the information contained on them with anyone else but it is conveniently available to us during the time you are using the Site (a Session Cookie) to enable you to participate in our Sites interactive features or when you return for a subsequent visit our Site can simply read that non-sensitive information from it (a Persistent Cookie) without needing to collect it again.
