To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

Google Analytics Cookies
Google Analytics allows the webmaster to see how people use the site, what sites they come from and what search terms they use to find the site, along with many other insights to help build a better website.
Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
More information on Google Analytics cookies can be found here.
CloudFlare is used to speed up page load times. It is used to override any security restrictions based on the IP address the visitor is coming from.
For example, if the visitor is in a coffee shop where there are a bunch of infected machines, but the visitor’s machine is known trusted, then the cookie can override the security setting. It does not correspond to any userid in the web application, nor does the cookie store any personally identifiable information.
Note: The __cfduid cookie is strictly necessary for site security operations and can’t be turned off.
Cookies From Embedded Content
Occasionally, the webmaster may embed content from other sites and services into webpages here (for example, embedding a YouTube video into a page). When third party services are used like this, they will usually set their own cookies in addition to the cookies listed above.
