1. What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file saved on your computer or mobile device. It has a unique ID assigned to your device and enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as location, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time. Cookies can also help us customize your browsing experience.
2. Types of cookies
There are two broad categories of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device until deleted manually or automatically (via system updates or device reboots, for example). Session cookies remain on your device only until you close your browser, and are thereby automatically deleted.
Some cookies may be strictly necessary for the website to function and to enable you to make use of the services we provide. If these cookies are blocked, you will not be able to effectively use our website.
Some cookies collect data, such as IP addresses, related to the use of our website and the performance of it. We use this information to improve our online products and services by measuring traffic patterns to determine which areas of our website have been visited, gathering broad demographic information, and tracking users’ movements. We will ask you for your consent before using these cookies.
Some cookies we use to personalize and optimize your experience on our website. These cookies store information on your choices such as text size, language and screen resolution. These cookies allow us to recognize your computer and greet you each time you visit our website without bothering you with a request to register or to log in. We will ask you for your consent before using these cookies.
Some cookies are placed by third parties on our behalf, for enhanced services (such as, but not limited to, Google for advertising purposes). These cookies enable us to generate personalized advertisements on other websites, which are based on information about you such as your page views on our website. Our websites may also place cookies for third-party services such as social media. We do not provide any personal information to third parties that place cookies on our website. However, third parties may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized ad or content displayed on our website fall within a group that the ad or content is directed towards. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that advertisers and third-party sites may use. The information practices of these third parties are not covered by our Privacy or Cookie Statement. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices. We will always ask for your consent before placing these cookies.

5. Your preferences
It’s possible to restrict or block cookies or even delete cookies that have already been placed on your device. If you do so, you may not be able to access certain parts of our website and we may think that you have never visited us before and will therefore show you the Cookie Notice again and ask for your consent in placing cookies.
You can also restrict or block cookies by changing your browser’s settings. Check the specific information in your browser’s help section to find out how to manage your cookie settings.
