Cookies allow us to record important information about how you arrive at, use, and move through this website. This helps us to make the content on this website better for visitors.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).
Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
- Necessary cookies: these cookies are required for you to be able to use some important features on our website, such as logging in. These cookies don't collect any personal information.
- Functionality cookies: these cookies provide functionality that makes using our service more convenient and makes providing more personalized features possible. For example, they might remember your name and email in comment forms so you don't have to re-enter this information next time when commenting.
- Analytics cookies: these cookies are used to track the use and performance of our website, email communications, and services, as indicated above.
You can check, change, or remove cookies stored in your computer via your browser settings. You can also block cookies through many browsers.

We use a third-party processor, ActiveCampaign, to deliver emails. If you receive emails from us, we use ActiveCampaign's analytics tools to look at data such as when you open emails or click on links inside the emails. This information helps us understand the effectiveness of our email communications and marketing campaigns.
