Cookie Notice

This notice outlines our handling practices with regards to cookies and related technologies in connection with our website at as well as through HTML-formatted email messages that we may send to you (collectively the “Sites”).

The access and use of our Sites require our use of cookies and related technologies; these are essential to enable our Sites to run properly. You have the option to agree to our use of cookies, however refusing the use of such cookies in your browser settings or otherwise may prove detrimental to the access and use of our Sites.

1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit and which allows us or a third party to (1) enable certain functions of the Site, (2) provide anonymous data analytics and (3) store your preferences to speed up your future activities, and personalise your experiences on the Sites. A cookie can do this because the Sites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (for example by remembering preference settings), and that will enable content that is more relevant to you.

Some cookies may store personal information, for example if you click “remember me” when logging in. Most cookies however will not collect information that identifies you and will instead collect more general information such as the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device) and a value, which usually is a randomly generated number.

2. What type of cookies do we use?

Cookies can either be session or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires automatically when you close your browser. A persistent cookie will remain until it expires (as set in the cookies themselves) or you delete your cookies. To the extent information collected through cookies constitutes personal information, the provisions in the Privacy Policy apply and complement this Cookie Notice.

The below table shows the cookies we use and what they are for:

3. How do third parties use cookies on our Sites?

Third party companies like analytics companies generally use cookies to collect user information on an anonymous basis.
