Use of cookies

Some of the features on this website require the use of “cookies” – small text files that are stored on your computer’s hard drive. We use cookies to measure which pages are being accessed, and which features are most frequently used. This enables us to continuously improve this website to meet the needs of our visitors.

With most internet browsers, you can block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Consult your internet browser documentation for details. Blocking all cookies may not be advisable, however, because it could decrease your ability to navigate through some websites and generally lower the quality of your internet experience. Likewise, setting your browser to send you a warning that allows you to accept or reject a cookie can be very distracting, given the extent of cookie usage by websites.

It is also possible to delete all cookies from your computer’s hard drive. Consult your internet browser documentation for the proper procedure to do that. Many cookies can be deleted with no ill effect, but some contain information that makes your subsequent visits to certain websites more useful.
