What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data stored in text files that are saved on your computer or other devices when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to remember you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a session cookie) or for multiple repeat visits (using a persistent cookie).

Session cookies are temporary cookies that are used during the course of your visit to our website, and they expire when you close the web browser.

Persistent cookies are used to remember your preferences within our website and remain on your desktop or mobile device even after you close your browser or restart your computer. They ensure a consistent and efficient experience while visiting our website and the services we provide.

Cookies may be set by our website, or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide analytics services on our website. These third parties can recognize you when you visit our website and also when you visit certain other websites.

Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

 

What types of cookies do we use?

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These allow us to offer you the best possible experience when accessing and navigating through our website and using its features. For example, these cookies let us recognise that you have created an account and have logged into that account to access the content.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about your use of our website. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users access our website, what pages they visit when they do so, etc. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our website and services. Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit sites, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to our website is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.
