About cookies

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device by websites that you visit. They are used to identify your computer as you use a computer network. This data is usually labelled with an ID unique to you and your computer. When the cookie is exchanged between your computer and the network server, the server reads the ID and knows what information to serve to you specifically. Thus, cookies allow you to see more relevant advertisements, and the navigation and use of the website will be more efficient as the website is enabled to remember your actions and preferences.

There are similar technologies that we store on your web browser or device that help us identify your device. In this policy, we refer to all of these technologies as “cookies.”

There are three categories of cookies available:

By Lifespan
  • Session cookies – they last as long as your visit to the website lasts, after which they are erased
  • Persistent cookies – they remain on your device for a pre-defined period of time
By domain
  • First-party cookies – set by the webserver
  • Third-party cookies – set by a different domain
By place of storage
  • Browser cookies – stored on the user’s browser
  • Flash cookies – stored outside the browser and accessible on multiple browsers on the same compute

    About cookies

    Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device by websites that you visit. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. The use of cookies helps you to navigate between pages efficiently, helps remember your preferences and improve your browsing experience in other ways. Cookies can also help ensure that the marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

    Other technologies, including data we store on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device and other software are used for similar purposes. In this policy, we refer to all of these technologies as “cookies.”

    By lifespan, cookies are either:

    • session cookies which are erased when the user closes the browser – session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

    • first-party cookies which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain or
    • third-party cookies stored by a different domain to the visited page’s domain. This can happen when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside of its’ domain.

    Taking into account where cookies are stored, there are:

    • browser cookies that are sent by a website and stored on the user’s browser. Browser cookies store less than Flash cookies and only the browser where the cookies are stored may access them.
    • flash cookies are known as local shared objects and they are different from browser cookies because of the amount, type and manner in which the data is stored. They are stored outside of the browser and they may be accessed by multiple browser on same computer.

    Preference and functionality cookies

    Preference cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks, like your preferred language or the region that you are in. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video, commenting on a blog or using a live chat service.

    Analytics cookies

We use different analytics cookies in order to analyse information about how our website is being used. Analytics cookies can process information about the number of visitors to the website, where visitors to the website came from, the pages they visit, scrolling activities, downloads, information about user agent, time spent on the website and approximate geo-location of a device that you use to access our website. We use this information to compile reports that help us to improve the website. Reports may be visually presented through heat maps and anonymised screen recordings.

    Third party cookies

    Third parties may set cookies when you visit our Website. Sometimes that is because we have hired the third party to provide services on our behalf. In other cases, it is because our web pages contain advertisements from third parties, or content such as videos and news. Because your browser connects to those third parties’ web servers to retrieve that content, third parties are able to set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.
