We keep this Policy under regular review and it is possible that we update it from time to time. Please review this Policy periodically for changes. Your continued use of our website once you have been notified of the revised Policy constitutes your acceptance of it.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is placed on your browser or the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.

 

4. 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.

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.

8. What personal information do cookies collect?

Generally, a cookie will contain a string of text that contains information about the browser. To work, a cookie does not need to know where you are from, it only needs to remember your browser.

However, there are some cookies we use which may store more personal information about you. This can be done only if you yourself have provided our website with that personal information.
