We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored; however, this may downgrade or 'break' certain elements of the site's functionality.

The Cookies We Set

  • Session related cookie
    All visitors will have a session cookie set that is simply a string of characters to uniquely identify your browsing session with the site (e.g. Session ID: X76Fhy8887). This unique identifier is there to keep track of your login status and retain certain information from page to page when forms are filled out.

  • Account related cookies

    If you create an account with us then we will use the above session cookie that contains a unique identifier for the management of the signup process and general administration. This identifier is used in the setting of information that has to do with your specific browsing session. This cookie will usually be deleted when you log out; however, in some cases they may remain afterward to remember your site preferences when logged out.

  • Login related cookies

    We use the same session cookie mentioned above when you are logged in so that we can remember this fact. This prevents you from having to log in every single time you visit a new page. These cookies are typically removed or cleared when you log out to ensure that you can only access restricted features and areas when logged in.

In some special cases, we also use cookies provided by trusted third parties. The following section details which third party cookies you might encounter through this site.
