What are cookies?
The cookies we use
The cookies used can be grouped roughly into the following categories:
How long do cookies last?
The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 90 days and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device. See the section below for more information on removing them before they expire.
