Types of Cookies we Use

  • Necessary Cookies: These are cookies which are required for our Public Website and Hosted Service to function properly. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Public Website and Hosted Service.

  • Preference Cookies: We also use cookies and similar software known as web beacons which allow us to recognize you when you return to our Public Website or Hosted Service.

  • Statistical Cookies: These cookies allow our Public Website and Hosted Service to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features.
