What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive by a website – when visited by a user – in order to remember information about you which can later be read by a website that issued the cookie to you. Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies will always be used.
There are different types of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies — These cookies are essential for you to browse the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the site. They help us maintain security and verify your details whilst you use this Site as you navigate from page to page, which enables you to avoid having to re-enter your details each time you enter a new page.
Preferences cookies — Also known as “functionality cookies,” these cookies allow a website to remember choices you have made in the past, like preferred language and time zone.
Statistics cookies — Also known as “performance cookies,” these cookies collect information about how you use a website, like which pages you visited and which links you clicked on. This information is aggregated and anonymized. Their sole purpose is to help us understand how users use this Site and to help us improve the structure of our Site.
Marketing cookies — These cookies track your online activity to help advertisers deliver more relevant advertising or to limit how many times you see an ad. These cookies can share that information with other organizations or advertisers.
When you visit our Website, we may place a number of cookies in your browser. These are known as First Party Cookies and are required to enable you to hold session information as you navigate from page to page within the website and allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. We may use this data to customize content for you that we think you might like, based on your usage patterns. We may also use it to improve the Services – for example, this data can tell us how often users use a particular feature of the Services, and we can use that knowledge to make the Services interesting to as many users as possible.
Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and across different websites. Our Services do not support Do Not Track requests at this time, which means that we collect information about your online activity both while you are using the Services and after you leave our Services.
You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features.
