1.3 This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are, how We use them on the Website and what benefits they bring. Please read this Cookie Policy carefully before You start to use the Website.  

2.1 Like most online services, We use cookies on Our Website for a number of reasons. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to Your computer, tablet or mobile device by websites that You visit. This means that Our Website can remember Your actions and preferences over time, making the interaction between You and the Website faster, easier and contributing to a better user experience for You.

2.2 There are two main types of cookies, session-dependent and permanent cookies. A session-dependent cookie will be deleted after the end of the session, that is, when You close Your browser. The permanent cookies are stored on Your machine or Your mobile device and are active until a specified expiration date. Permanent cookies are usually used in the personalisation of webpages, such as menu choices, language preferences, and authentication.

2.3 We use both Our own and third-party cookies for the collection of statistics, evaluation, marketing and optimisation of the content on Our Website. Third-party cookies are used, among other things, to identify users on the Website and to use information about their use of the site. Such cookies are governed by the respective third party’s terms and we recommend that you read these terms to understand what other purposes for which information collected through these cookies may be used.

2.4 The cookies We use generally fall into one of the following categories:

a) Essential: Enables various operations of the Website, for instance to maintain an active session or keep You logged into an account.

This is statistical data about Our users’ browsing actions and patterns and does not identify any individual.

3.3 We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect data about Your use of this Website. Google Analytics collects data such as how often You visit this Website, what pages You visit when You do so, and what other websites You used prior to visiting the Website. We only use the data We receive from Google Analytics to improve this Website. Google Analytics only collects the IP address assigned to You on the date You visit this Website, rather than Your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the data collected through the use of Google Analytics with personal data. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on Your web browser to identify You as a unique user the next time You visit this Website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Please note that we have structured Our use of Google Analytics to anonymise IP addresses and prevent Google from combining or cross-referencing data through Google Analytics with data obtained from other Google products.

4.2 Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. If You do not want to accept the use of cookies, You can withdraw Your consent by deleting existing cookies, blocking future cookies, or granting permission to store new cookies. See Clause 5 for more information.
