Some Cookies are necessary for technical reasons in order for our Site to operate and/or provide basic functionality to you, and we refer to these as “essential” Cookies. Other Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users and to enhance the experience on our Site. Third parties may also serve Cookies through our Site for advertising, analytics, and other purposes.

In addition to our proprietary Cookies, some third-party and affiliated companies may place Cookies on your computer, access them and associate web beacons with them. These Cookies enable third party features or functionalities to be provided on or through the Site. The parties that set these third-party Cookies can recognise your device both when it visits our Site and also when it visits certain other websites.
The types of first and third-party cookies we use on the Site are:
We use temporary Cookies on all of our secure pages to assign and register a session ID. You can browse our entire Site without interruption. This identifier is also used for internal reporting purposes. It does not allow us to identify you personally and this type of Cookie does not leave any information recoverable on your hard drive. Most of our proprietary Cookies fall into this category and expire when you close your Internet browser.
Our proprietary analysis Cookies and third-party Cookies are often permanent Cookies. They allow us to understand visitors’ browsing behaviour over a longer period of time or to provide you with additional features related to your Site customisation requests and the content that you have saved or stored. They can stay on your computer for 24 hours, a week or several years, depending on their function. This means that these Cookies survive after your browser is closed and can be used by our Site to recognize your computer when you re-open your browser later.
You can exercise your preference to receive all types of Cookies by managing Cookies from your web browser. As the means by which to activate or deactivate Cookies varies from one web browser to another, you should visit your web browser’s help menu for more information on Cookie preferences. You can also configure your browser at any time to be notified of the receipt of a Cookie, so that you can decide whether you want to accept them or not. Cookies do not under any circumstances read the data from your hard drive and you can delete them from your computer at any time. At the moment, it is technically impossible for you to synchronise your settings between your browsers and your devices (your computer or your smartphone). You must set them on each browser/device that you currently use and each time you use a new browser or device. Please note that if you choose to disable or de-activate Cookies, this will apply to all Cookies and have the consequences on Site functionality discussed in the section immediately below.
