Cookie Policy

This policy explains how cookies are used on our website, what cookies may be set when you visit the website and how to manage and delete them.

Why we collect, store, and use cookies

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a site and allow a site to recognize your device. By continuing to browse the website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

Cookies do a lot of different jobs. Such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience.

We use the necessary cookies and analytical cookies to offer you a better experience. Cookies aid website navigation, help us analyze site traffic, and assist in our advertising and marketing campaigns.

Necessary Cookies

Necessary cookies enable core functionality. The website cannot function properly without these cookies, and they can only be disabled by changing your browser preferences.

Analytical / Performance Cookies

Analytical cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors to our website. They also allow us to see how visitors move around our website when they use it. This helps us to improve the way our website works. For example, we use cookies to see if users can find what they are looking for.

Third-party cookies (third-party technology)

Google Analytics (GA) is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. that provides statistics on an aggregated and thus anonymous basis about visitors to our website.

These cookies do not collect information that individually identifies a visitor. The information these cookies do collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. But you can block this cookies. For more information, see “How to change your cookie settings”.

If you do not allow these cookies, we will not be able to monitor the website’s performance.

Please note that third parties (for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, which we do not have control of. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

How long can a cookie last?

It depends based on the type of cookie. Session cookies expire when you close the browser. Other cookies are “persistent cookies”, which means that they last after you close your browser. This is so the website can recognize your device. Other cookies have inbuilt expiration dates.

Changing your browser’s cookie settings

Most internet browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can change your browser settings to delete cookies or prevent them from being accepted automatically if that is your preference. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including necessary cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of our website.
