(a) What are cookies?

Cookies are files or pieces of information that may be stored on your computer (or other internet enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit this Website. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the "lifetime" of the cookie (i.e. how long the cookie will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

Two types of cookies may be used, "session cookies" and "persistent cookies". Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browning session. Persistent cookies remain longer on your device, for the duration of each specific cookie, and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).

Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.

Google AdWords conversion tracking Google uses cookies to help businesses that buy ads from Google determine how many people who click their ads end up purchasing their products. The conversion tracking cookie is set on your browser only when you click an ad delivered by Google where the advertiser has opted in to conversion tracking. These cookies do not contain information that can identify you personally. If this cookie has not yet expired when you visit certain pages of the advertiser’s Web Site, Google and the advertiser will be able to tell that you clicked the ad and proceeded to that page. Each advertiser gets a different cookie, so no cookie can be tracked across advertiser Web Sites. If you want to disable conversion tracking cookies, you can set your browser to block cookies from the domain. Additionally, due to the current lack of per-domain cookie settings in iOS and Android mobile browsers, you must disable all cookies in order to opt out of mobile conversion tracking.
