Cookies Policy

How we use cookies

We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration purposes. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns and does not identify you as an individual. If you agree, we may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file. The website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of the website. This helps us to deliver a better and more personalized service to you when you browse the website and also allows us to improve the website.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers, which are transferred to your computer's hard drive or mobile device when you visit the website. The cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit or to another website that recognizes that cookie.

Types of cookies used on this website

Different types of cookies are used for different purposes on our website. These are known as strictly necessary cookies, user selected cookies, analytical cookies (which are split between performance cookies and functionality cookies), or targeting cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies

are cookies that are essential, as they ensure your security and privacy when you use our secure sites, as well as enabling you to move around a website and use its features. Without these cookies, services you've asked for (such as access to secure areas) can't be provided. These cookies don't gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you've been on the internet. This category cannot be disabled.

User-selected cookies

are cookies that are applied if you interact with the website, for example to allow us to display the relevant regional pages based on the region you have selected or to allow us to determine if you have accepted cookies for the website.

Performance cookies

collect information about how you use the website. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors to the website and allow us to see how visitors move around the website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the website works, for example, by ensuring that you find what you are looking for more easily. The information these cookies collect is anonymous (and therefore do not collect information about your identity) and is only used to improve the performance of the Website. By using the website, you agree that we can place these types of cookie on your device.

Functionality cookies

allow the website to remember the choices you make (such as your user name, language, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. These cookies are also used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of the web pages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymized and they do not gather information about you that could be used for advertising or remembering where you have been on the internet. By using the website, you agree that we can place these types of cookie on your device.

Targeting cookies

gather information about your browsing habits. They remember that you've visited a website and share this information with other organizations, such as advertisers and platforms on which we advertise. They do this in order to provide you with ads that are more relevant to you and your interests. Although these cookies and similar technologies can track your visits to other websites, they don't usually know who you are. Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.

For information on how we use any personal information which is collected by these cookies, please see our Privacy Notice.

Browser Settings

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to block the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you decide to block cookies on your browser, you may be unable to access all or parts of the website. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit the website.

Most of our cookies will expire at the end of the browser session. However, if your browser is not closed for any reason, all our cookies will expire after 2 years.
