Purpose of cookies

Cookies may sound intrusive, but in fact each and every request that you make to a web server is treated in complete isolation, so storing a cookie is the only way that a site can know that you are the same user that you were on the last page that you accessed.

Cookies allow us to store your preferences to correctly present content, options or functions throughout our Website and distinguish you from other users of the Website.
