Cookies

In order to provide its service to customers, this website uses cookies, local shared objects (aka “Flash Cookies) and web storage.

A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on an internet user's hard drive [or equivalent storage device]. It is generated by a web page server, which is basically the computer that operates a website. The information the cookie contains is set by the server and it can be used by that server whenever the user visits the site. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which tells a web site when the user has returned. [source: aboutcookies.org]

Local shared objects (aka “Flash Cookies”) and web storage are technologies very similar in nature to cookies. A detailed explanation of how these work is beyond the scope of this document.
