Cookie Policy

Cookies were originally invented by Netscape to give 'memory' to web servers and browsers.

A cookie is nothing but a small text file that's stored in your browser. It contains some data:

  • A name-value pair containing the actual data
  • An expiry date after which it is no longer valid
  • The domain and path of the server it should be sent to

A name-value pair is simply a named piece of data. It is not a program, and it cannot "do" anything. A Web site can retrieve only the information that it has placed on your machine. It cannot retrieve information from other cookie files, nor any other information from your machine.

As soon as you request a page from a server to which a cookie should be sent, the cookie is added to the HTTP header. Server side programs can then read out the information and decide that you have the right to view the page you requested or that you want your links to be yellow on a green background.

When you access this Website, we will place a data file called a "cookie" on your computer. Cookies help us gather and store information about the visitors to our websites. The use of cookies helps us improve the services that we provide on our website.
