Use of cookies

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of a site.

The cookies that this site may store on your computer are listed below.

On sites where the Google Analytics tracking system is active, the following cookies may be set: _utma, _utmb, etc (these expire after two years).
