This policy provides detailed information about how and when cookies are being used on this website.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser.
What are cookies used for?
They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences (language settings for example), either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first-party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third-party cookies”).
Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
When do we place cookies?
What types of cookies do we use?
We use session cookies: these cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).
|Categories of Use
|Preferences, features and services
||Cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communication preferences are.
|Performance, Analytics and Research
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?
If you do not want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use our website without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit wikipedia.org, www.allaboutcookies.org, or www.aboutcookies.org.
