You may notice the presence of different types of cookies generated on your visit to this website. We use three types of cookies:

Session cookies. These enable you to perform essential functions on the website, such as remembering a repeat form field item within a browsing session. They help by limiting the need to transfer information across the Internet. They are not stored on your computer.
Persistent cookies. These enable us to recognize anonymous repeat visitors to the website. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, a record can be taken of specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path taken through the site. By monitoring this information we’re able to make improvements to the site, including fixing errors and enhancing content.
Third-Party cookies. When you visit our website, you may notice some cookies that are not related to LOMA. If you go on to a web page that contains embedded content, for example from Facebook or YouTube, you may be sent cookies from these websites. We do not control the generation of these cookies and suggest that you check the individual third-party websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
