We utilize cookies to assist our site users and make their experience as pain free as possible. For example, when filling in forms, we understand that this can be very frustrating when you need to return to a page where you have already completed a form only to find that the form data has been removed. This is a security measure for most browsers, they do not always repopulate forms. We store the form data in a cookie which then adds the form data back into the relevant form inputs so you the user does not need to do any more work than is absolutely necessary.
