WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are text files that are used to store a small amount of data and downloaded to your computer or device when you visit certain websites. This data often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer and can contain other information as well. Cookies make your browsing experience better by allowing the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login or product selection). This means you don’t have to re-enter this information each time you return to the site or browse from one page to another.

Cookies set by our own website are called “first-party cookies”. Cookies set by websites that don’t belong to us are called “third-party cookies”. Third-party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content or analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Cookies vary by length of time they remain active in the user’s system such as “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device. See the section below on how to control cookies for more information on removing them before they expire.

HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

Like most of the online services, our website uses first-party cookies and third-party cookies for a number of purposes.
