1. What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that allow your browser or device to be uniquely identified. The cookie file is saved on your computer. When you return to that website (or visit other websites that use the same cookies), the cookies and your browsing device are recognised.
Cookies perform a variety of functions, including allowing you to navigate between pages more efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience. Cookies can tell us whether you have previously visited our Services, for example.
2. Are there different types of cookies?
Cookies are classified into two types: first party cookies (served directly by us to your computer or device) and third party cookies (which are served by a third party on our behalf). Third-party cookies enable the provision of third-party features or functionality on or through the website (e.g. advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties who set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer when it visits both the website in question and certain other websites.
Cookies can stay on your device for varying amounts of time. Some cookies are session cookies, which means they exist only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close it. Other cookies are persistent, which means they remain after you close your browser. They can be used to identify your computer when you relaunch your browser and browse the Internet.
3. What are cookies used for?
Cookies are used for different purposes.
Essential cookies are required for the Services to function properly and for you to access secure areas. We would be unable to provide you with the websites and services you have requested if these cookies were not present.
Functionality cookies save information about your choices and enable us to provide relevant content and tailor our Services to you.
Performance cookies assist us in measuring traffic and usage data, as well as analysing how our Services are used, in order to provide you with a better user experience and to maintain, operate, and improve our Services. These cookies may be placed by us or by third-party providers whose services we have integrated into our websites and apps.
Targeting cookies enable us to display ads that are relevant to you on our websites or third-party websites, as well as measure the effectiveness of relevant ad campaigns.
5. Cookie Settings
Some of these cookies are required and we cannot provide our service to you without them, but others can be disabled. Please keep in mind that disabling certain cookies will disable some of the features available on our websites. We cannot guarantee that your visit to our websites will be as enjoyable as it could be.
6.Third party cookies
You can opt out of certain third-party cookies in addition to managing them in your browser settings. Hotjar and Google Analytics, for example, help us understand how users interact with our websites, compile reports, and improve our services. The reports reveal website trends without identifying specific users. You can disable these cookies without affecting how you interact with our websites.
