We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the site. In particular, we use session cookies to record session information, such as which web pages a user has visited, and to track user activity on the site.  We also use session cookies to store any passwords used on the site (such as a password associated with a user account), so you do not have to enter it more than once per session.  Session cookies expire when you close your browser.

We use persistent cookies to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.  Persistent cookies remain on your device for an extended period of time.  You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your browser’s “help” file.
