What do Cookies do?
Cookies are small text files that a web server places on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website (composed only of letters and numbers). The cookie can help to make our services more user-friendly when used, such as by remembering your language preferences and settings.
Below we have detailed for you the few general reasons on what cookies do to help us help you:
In order to give you a great deal of experience on this site, we provide you with the functionality to set your preferences for how this site works when you use it. In order to remember your preferences, we need to set cookies so that this information can be called whenever you interact with a page that is affected by your preferences. This may help you navigate around the site, make it possible for you to 'remember your username' or simply make your experience on the site faster and easier.
This site uses Google Analytics, which is one of the most widely used and trusted web analytics solutions, to help us understand how you use the site and how we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things like how long you spend on the site and on the pages you visit so that we can continue to produce interesting content.
From time to time, we test new features and make subtle changes to the way the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features, these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience while on-site, while at the same time ensuring that we understand which optimisations our users value most.

reCAPTCHA is a free Google service that helps protect our websites from spam and abuse by keeping automated software out of our website. This is done by collecting personal information about users to determine whether they are human and not spambots.
reCAPTCHA checks to see if a Google cookie is stored on a computer or mobile device and validates against it. From our point of view, no personal data is made available to Google. A reCAPTCHA-specific cookie is stored on the user's browser, and a complete snapshot of the user's browser is captured. Timeframes for reCaptcha(s) are defined by Google and not by the Company.
