1. What are cookies?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit it. It allows the website to recognise your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions.
2. What type of cookies do we use?
There are three different ways to classify cookies: in terms of their provenance, the purpose they serve and how long they endure.
· First party cookies are cookies set directly by the website you are visiting. Only that website can read them.
· Third-party cookies are cookies set by domains that are not directly visited by you, but which provide external services to the website you are visiting. We do not use third-party cookies.
· Strictly necessary cookies are cookies that are essential for you to browse the website and use its features. For this type of cookies consent is not required to be obtained.
· Preferences cookies are cookies that allow the website to remember choices you have made in the past, such as what your user name and password are so you can automatically log in.
· Statistics cookies are cookies that collect information about how you use the website in order to improve the website functions. They are also known as “performance cookies”.
· Marketing cookies are cookies that track your online activity to help advertisers deliver more relevant advertising or to limit how many times you see an ad. We do not use marketing cookies.
· Session cookies are cookies that expire at the end of a browser session (normally when you exit your browser). Session cookies allow websites to recognise and link your actions during a browsing session.
· Persistent cookies are cookies saved on your computer which are not deleted automatically when you close your browser, unlike a session cookie. Persistent cookies allow for your preferences or actions across a website (or across different websites) to be remembered and are used to re-identify you upon your next visit.
3. How can you manage cookies?
You can remove cookies from your device by clearing the browsing history of your browser. This will remove all cookies from all websites you have visited. However, such deletion may also erase some saved information (e.g., saved login details, site preferences, etc.).
If you wish to manage site-specific cookies, please check the privacy and cookie settings in your preferred browser.
You can also block cookies in most modern browsers to prevent any cookies being placed on your device, but you may then have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a website. In such case, please be aware that some services and functionalities may not work properly (e.g., profile logging-in).
