What are Cookies
Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your Internet Web browser by many of the Websites that you visit. A Cookie file may be stored in your web browser and/or downloaded files. Cookies are commonly used to enhance your user experience when browsing and provide more information regarding areas of interest when exploring a Website. This information is generally used to make content, services and sometimes advertising more relevant and useful during your visit and sometimes cookies are used when visiting again in the future.
Cookies can be "persistent" or "session" based.
When you use and access the Service, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser.
The cookies we use on our Website:
- Functional Cookies – to enable certain functions of the Service, to provide analytics, to store your preferences. This helps us to provide you with the best experience when you are browsing our Websites
- Essential cookies. We may use essential cookies to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts.
The cookies that we use on our Websites only collect anonymous information to optimise our services, and do not collect personal information
How long do cookies last?
We use both session and persistent cookies and we use different types of cookies to run the Service.
Some are deleted as soon as you close your Internet Web browser on our Website (session cookies). Others stay longer, sometimes forever (persistent cookies) so they are then when you return in the future which can then allow ourselves at times to further enhance your browsing experience.
In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-parties cookies to report usage statistics of the Service, such as Google analytics.
These "third-party cookies" might track how you use different Websites, including ours. For example, you might get a social media company's cookie when you see the option to share something. You can turn them off, but not through us.
What are your choices regarding cookies
Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or refuse to accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.
