This policy explains what exactly cookies are, the different types of cookies we use and how they will affect your experience on this website. Please read it carefully so you have all the information you need to make yourself comfortable about how we use cookies when you are visiting and using our website.

About cookies

A cookie is information that a website puts on your computer so that it can remember something about you at a later time. Typically, a cookie records your preferences when using a particular site. It recognises you when you navigate different pages of the website, or return to the website.

However, it is important to understand that cookies do not collect nor store any personally identifiable information about you. In other words, you are remembered as an anonymous user, and the information stored by cookies is never linked to your name.

Each request for a Web page is independent of all other requests. For this reason, the Web page server has no memory of what pages it has sent to a user previously or anything about your previous visits. A cookie is a mechanism that allows the server to remember what you have done before on the website and make your experience better.

As an example, cookies are commonly used to rotate the banner ads that a site sends so that it doesn't keep sending the same add as it sends you a succession of requested pages. They can also be used to customize pages for you based on your browser type or other information you may have provided the Web site. You will find below full details of the cookies used on this website.

You can view the cookies that have been stored on your hard disk (although the content stored in each cookie may not make much sense to you). The location of the cookies depends on the browser.

There are 4 types of cookies used on this website:

  • Session Cookies: allowing us to “remember” the pages you previously visited on our website and the actions you have taken during your session. Those expire at the end of the user session, when you close your web browser.
  • Persistent Cookies: these take the form of a text file which will be stored by your browser and will remain valid until their set expiry date (unless you delete them before the expiry date). Persistent cookies help us to determine your preferences.
  • First Party Cookies: are owned by us although they can sometimes get set up by Third Parties we work with (e.g. Google Analytics). The data they contain, however, is sent to our servers only.
  • Third Party Cookies: these are cookies from any other domain, such as recommended product and advertising services.
