Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored in your computer by the websites you visit. Cookies collect in some instances personal data, with which a person can be identified. Cookies are stored in your browser’s file directory. Next time you visit the site, your browser will read the cookie and relay the information back to the website or element that originally set the cookie. Two types of cookies are used, such as “session-only” and “persistent”. “Session-only” cookies are deleted when you end your browser session. “Persistent cookies” remain on your device for the time period set in the cookie after which time they delete themselves. However, these cookies may be renewed every time you visit the website.
It is also common to distinguish between first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are allocated to the website that you visit while third-party cookies come from a third party, such as a web analytics program.
Third parties use the data collected via cookies so that appropriate advertising may be shown to you. Cookies are also used to recognize you when you return to the Site in order to, for example, provide you with information related to your own interests. We can’t and will not use the data collected with cookies to identify a visitor as an individual.
Cookie lifetime varies depending whether it’s a session or a persistent cookie. We will retain your data as long as it is necessary for the purpose of the cookie or until we can presume the data will not be needed anymore. For more information on cookie expiry and cookie descriptions, see below.
You can alter your browser settings to not accept cookies or delete the cookies from your computer. Deleting the cookies doesn’t stop cookies from being set in the future. Different web browsers may use different methods for managing cookies. Please follow the instructions provided to you by the web browser provider directly, to configure your browser settings. These instructions are provided by third parties over which we have no control or liability.
Furthermore, our Sites allow you to choose you Cookie Settings by clicking on the “Cookie Settings” button.
