Cookies Policy

What are Cookies?
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive or mobile device by your web browser (if you allow) that enable the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. These cookies can save your settings on a website and are used to deliver a more efficient and enjoyable website experience by storing information about how you use the website. For example, storing information on the pages you visited which allows for suggesting related content based on a previous visit.
There are two types of cookies: (i) First-party cookies which are set by the website you are visiting and (ii) Third-party cookies which come from other websites e.g. ads embedded on a page using Google services.

 

Are Cookies harmful?
Cookies cannot access any information on your computer other than the information you have openly disclosed to the website which sent the cookies to your computer. Cookies can’t be executed as code and as such cannot distribute malware.

 

What types of cookies do we use?
We only use first party cookies but also use some third party website tools which use cookies in different ways. Third party tools on this website:

Google Analytics – We use Google Analytics to measure how users interact with website content. These cookies do not collect personal information about visitors and use an anonymous identifier to distinguish visitors. Google Analytics helps website owners to measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages/ interactions with the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the websites (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. See more on how Google Analytics uses cookies.

For instance, we use cookies to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We use cookies to:

  • Understand and save user’s preferences for future visits
  • Keep track of advertisements
  • Compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions to offer you better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third party services that track this information on our behalf.
