Cookies are used in the provision of this service, but only to hold details of your current search data and a unique session identifier. None of these cookies contain personal or card information.

  • record the size of the type or other layout information for a year
  • save that you have logged in to the member's area only if you ask to be remembered
  • indicate that you've opted to accepted these cookies for ninety days

The other ‘session’ cookies store information strictly necessary during your browser session and are intended to be destroyed when you close your web browser (some browsers, like Firefox, have the capability to restore your previous session, so these cookies are not destroyed immediately):
