In this policy we use the term “cookies” to refer to cookies and other similar technologies covered by the EU Directive on privacy in electronic communications.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time.
Most Internet browsers support cookies; however, users can set their browsers to decline certain types of cookies or specific cookies. Further, users can delete cookies at any time.
What types of cookies do we use?
“User input cookies”, or session cookies, are used to keep track of a user’s input when submitting online data. We also use session cookies to provide information you’ve requested through an action , such as clicking a button or filling out a web form. Session cookies always expire after the browsing session is over.
Persistent cookies help websites remember your information, browsing history, and settings when you visit them in the future. This results in faster and more convenient access.
Persistent cookies stay on your device unless you delete them manually, or until they are automatically deleted based on the retention period of the cookie.
How are third party cookies used?
These cookies are used to better understand and optimize the web experience, such as pages visited or length of time spent on a page.
