Please read this Cookie Policy in conjunction with our Privacy Policy, which sets out additional details on how we obtain and use personal identifiable information (PII) and your various rights related thereto.


What are cookies and how do we use them?

Like most of the websites you visit, we and third parties collect certain information from you in our websites (jointly referred as “Site”) by automated means such as cookies and other similar technologies to distinguish you from other users, store and manage your preferences, enable content and gather analytic data. This information may include your IP address, browser and operating system information, device identifiers and URLs. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our Site and allows us to improve it too.
 

  • Cookies

    Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies may then be sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device and to remember their actions and preferences (such as login details, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time.

    We rely on your consent to use certain types of cookies (except those “Required cookies”, as described below). You can refuse cookies at any time by changing your settings while entering our Site referring to the Cookies Preference manager or changing the cookie settings in your browser. You should repeat this process with each browser you use to visit our Site.

    You can find more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, at https://www.allaboutcookies.org or www.youronlinechoices.eu.

     
  • Web beacons

    Web beacons (also known as internet tags or pixel tags) are typically transparent graphic images placed on a website. Web beacons are used in combination with cookies to measure the actions of visitors on websites. We may use beacons to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, and the type of browser used to view the page.

 

How long do cookies last?

We use cookies and similar technologies that only remain on your device for as long as you keep your browser active (also referred as session cookies, which are erased from your device’s memory when you close your Internet browser) and cookies and similar technologies that remain on your device for a longer period (also referred as persistent cookies, which are stored on your device until they expire, unless you delete them before that time). You are free to block, delete, or disable these technologies if your device allows this. You can manage your cookies and your cookies’ preferences in your browser or device settings (see the section How to control and delete cookies below).
