A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the ‘lifetime’ of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. Cookies can help a website to arrange content to match your preferred interests more quickly and are used by most major websites. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.
Two types of cookies are used on this Website:
(a) Session Cookies
Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Websites. We use session cookies:

(b) Persistent cookies
Persistent cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer than session cookies (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). We use persistent cookies:
