Functional Cookies (such as language preference): These cookies help us customize our website content based on a user’s preferences.

If functional cookies are disabled, various functions of our website may be unavailable to you or may not work the way you want them to.

How long will cookies stay on my device?
The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will exist only for so long as you are visiting the applicable website and are typically deleted or removed when you exit or quit your browser application. Persistent cookies exist for a set period of time and stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted. Each time you visit a website that has implemented a persistent cookie, that cookie will remain active until its predetermined expiration date. You can also manually delete persistent cookies as discussed below.
HOW TO MANAGE COOKIES
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. Browsers generally also allow users to manage cookies in the browser’s settings. For example, a browser may allow you to reject cookies from certain websites, reject certain types of cookies regardless of the website, reject or disable all cookies from all websites, or delete previously stored cookies stored previously. Some browsers also give you the option of being notified every time a cookie is sent to your browser by a website.
You can disable or limit cookies but doing so may impact your use and enjoyment of the Site and other websites. For example, the website may not be able to be personalized for you, may no longer capture or remember your preferences or other choices you have made on the website in the past, and may not remember your name, contact information, or other information you have entered using the website. Please refer to your browser’s options to learn more about cookie management using your browser.
Managing First-Party Cookies. To manage first-party cookies (that is, tracking with cookies placed by the Foundation) on our website, you may be able to opt out by adjusting the appropriate settings in your browser. Each browser is different, but many common browsers have preferences or options that may be adjusted to allow you to either accept or reject cookies and certain other technologies before they are set or installed or allow you to remove or reject the use or installation of certain technologies altogether.
Changing your cookie preferences in one browser will not necessarily carry over to other browsers, so you may need to adjust your preferences each time you get a new device, install a new browser, upgrade an existing browser, or alter or delete a browser’s cookie file.
