Cookies Policy

This website uses Cookies. Cookies are small text files that may be placed on your browser when visiting our website. Cookies allow your browser to remember some specific information which the web server can later retrieve and use. When you quit your browser, some cookies are stored in your computer’s memory, while some expire or disappear.

 

Key Concepts:

First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party refers to the domain placing the cookie.

  • First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by our website domain).
  • Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie.

 

Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.


Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

This website uses both persistent and session cookies.

A complete list of the cookies we use can be viewed in the cookies table below.
