What is a cookie?
Cookies are simple text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier, the website’s domain name, and some digits and numbers.
Cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website and remember your preferences to give you a better experience while browsing our site. They also provide us with the information we need to keep improving our website.
What types of cookies do we use?
The types of cookies we use are listed below and fall under two general categories: strictly necessary and optional. This means that what cookies we place when you visit our website or services will depend on your choices.
Some cookies are deleted once you close your internet browser (“session cookies”). “Persistent cookies” on the other hand stay on your browser for a longer period and are not deleted once you close it. So, for example, a website you revisit remembers your language of choice.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with the services you have expressly requested. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Services and websites and use of their features, and therefore cannot be switched off in our systems. The information collected relates to the operation of our website and enables us to provide you with the service you have requested. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store your personal data. The use of these cookies for the purposes described above is based on our legitimate interest to ensure the proper technical functioning of, access to, and use of the our website and services and to provide you with the services you have expressly requested.
These cookies are optional and are used to remember the choices you have made: for example, the country you visit our website from; your language; and any changes you have made to the text size and other parts of the web pages that you can customize to improve your user experience; and to make your visits more tailored and enjoyable. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies are optional and are used to collect information on how visitors use our website: for example, which pages they visit most often; whether they receive any error messages; and how they arrived at our website. Information collected by these cookies is used only to improve the use of our website by our visitors. These cookies are sometimes placed by third party providers of web traffic and analysis services. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when people have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
How to delete cookies?
If you want to restrict or block the cookies that are set by our website, you can do so through your browser settings. Alternatively, you can visit www.internetcookies.com, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers and devices. You will find general information about cookies and details on how to delete cookies from your device.
We may change or update this Disclosure from time to time. When we do, we will post the revised Disclosure on this page with a new “Last updated” date.
