1. What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. 
This allows for the information stored within the cookie to be sent back as part of any subsequent interactions you have with the issuing website. This exchange of information allows websites to remember basic information about you, such as whether you have visited the website before or whether you are “logged in”.


2. Different types of cookies

Different types of cookies are used to do different things.  These include letting you navigate between different pages on a website efficiently, remembering your preferences and helping us to identify ways to improve your overall website experience.  Others are used to measure the number of website visits and the most popular pages users visit, or to provide you with advertising more tailored to your interests.

Cookies that are set by us are called first-party cookies. We also use third-party cookies, which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting – for our advertising and marketing efforts. 

We do not share the information collected by the cookies with any third parties.

We use persistent cookies which are stored on your computer or device and are not deleted when your browser is closed. Persistent cookies can be used to retain your preferences for a particular website, allowing those preferences to be used in future browsing sessions. Persistent cookies usually assign a unique ID to your browser and they are usually configured to identify you for a prolonged period of time, from days to months or even years.

Except for essential cookies, all cookies will expire after 2 years.
