We use cookies to enhance the performance of our website and personalise your online experience.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to work more efficiently, by remembering your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) if you’ve been to the website before, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site.
They are also useful to provide information to the owners of websites. Cookies are used to measure which parts of the website people visit and to customise your experience, as well as to provide information that helps us monitor and improve the website’s performance.

Description of Cookies

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

First Party Cookies

The function of this type of cookie is to retain your preferences for our website. They are stored and sent between our servers and your computer’s hard drive. We collect this information anonymously, so it doesn’t identify anyone as an individual and no personal information is stored in our cookies. We always use cookie data in a responsible way. These cookies may be either Session or Persistent cookies.

Third Party Cookies

Some of the services and products within the pages of our website are provided by third parties who, in time, may set their own cookies to enable such services. These cookies are stored and sent between the third-party’s server and your computer’s hard drive. These cookies are usually persistent cookies. Because we don’t control the settings of these third-party cookies, we recommend that you visit the third-party website that has generated them for more information about how to manage them.
