Cookies are small files of information that are placed on your computer, mobile device or any other device you use when you visit a website. These contain details that identify you as a user (such as your IP address and broad location) and your browsing history on that website.

  • Third Party Apps 

  • Custom Code (e.g., The UserWay Website Accessibility Widget, for more information on their cookie policy please see their cookie policy).
