How we use cookies 

A cookie is a small file that requests permission to be added to the hard drive in your computer. Once you have provided your permission, the file is added and the cookie allows us to analyse web traffic or allows you to know when you visit a specific site. Cookies allow web applications to work better for you as an individual.
