  1. What are Cookies and What Information do We Collect?
    When you use our Services, our servers may automatically collect usage data via Cookies. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Internet enabled device to provide us with technical details about your session. Clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, which are embedded invisibly on web pages.

    These technologies automatically collect information such as your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the Services, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Services, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Services, and other Service usage information.
  2. How We Use Cookies and How You Can Control Them?
    We use Cookies to provide you with our Services, tailor our Services and messages to you by gathering and remembering information about your preferences, and enhance your online experience with us.

    When you visit our website, we store cookies on your browser to collect information. The information collected might relate to you, your preferences or your device, and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to and to provide a more personalized web experience. However, you can choose not to allow certain types of cookies, which may impact your experience of the site and the services we are able to offer.

    In particular, our Services use the following categories of Cookies:
    • Essential and Strictly Necessary Cookies: These Cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These Cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
    • Performance Cookies: These Cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these Cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these Cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
    • Functional Cookies: These Cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these Cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
    • Advertising (Targeting) Cookies: These Cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these Cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
  3. We use both session Cookies (i.e., they last only until you close your browser) and persistent Cookies (i.e., they remain on your computer or device until you delete them). We use first-party and third-party Cookies. First-party Cookies are used and controlled by us to provide the Services. Third-party Cookies are controlled by third parties, mostly for the purpose of analytics.

    If you wish to restrict or block Cookies, modify the Cookie Settings through the cookie banner or select the Cookie Settings link at the bottom of the page to change our default settings according to your preference. You cannot opt-out of our Essential and Strictly Necessary Cookies as they are deployed in order to ensure the proper functioning of our website (such as prompting the cookie banner and remembering your settings, to log into your account, to redirect you when you log out, etc.). Please be aware that restricting Cookies may have an impact on the functionality of our Services.
