Cookies are then sent back to the originating location on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow us to recognize your device.

How We Use Cookies. Cookies serve a variety of functions, like enabling us to remember certain information you provide to us as you navigate between parts of the Services. We use cookies for the following purposes:

Authentication: We use cookies to recognize you if you are logged in to our Services. This lets us personalize your experience on or with the Services in the ways described below. In addition, we may employ third-party services that may use cookies to help you sign into their services from our Services.

Third party advertisers: We currently do not work with advertisers, and advertising service providers, to serve ads that may be relevant to you based on your inferred interests, location, or other information collected about you, which may use a cookie or the technologies described below, placed by us or the third party (although we would not share any other information that identifies you with an advertiser) on our Services, or on a third party website or online service. However, we will in the future place ads on other sites and said sites might place these technologies on your device to enable you to be identified across multiple websites and online services. Again, we do not currently work with any advertisers on our site or others.

Duration of Cookies: Some cookies, known as “session cookies”, will stay on your device only for as long as you are accessing our Services. Others, known as “persistent cookies”, are stored on your device for longer periods.
