Google Maps

We use Google Maps on the Contact Us page to provide detailed information on how to locate our offices. Google Maps stores up to four cookies: khcookie, NID, SNID and PREF. We use Google's interactive maps because we believe they provide a helpful way for our visitors to identify how best to travel to us. We use the Google Maps tools on the basis that Google adheres to its privacy policy and its terms of service for Google Maps.


Some of our contact forms use a service called Formstack, which is a form builder tool. Formstack generate the forms and forward the submissions to Edgewater. Formstack creates a cookie called AWSALBCORS which registers which server-cluster is serving the visitor. This is used in context with load balancing, in order to optimize user experience.
