In this Cookie Policy, we inform you about the use of cookies on our website, which cookies we are using and how you can manage your consent to store cookies. For more information about how we protect your Personal Information, please see our Privacy Policy and for more information on cookies or if you feel that your interests were not accurately represented, please contact us using the details below.


What are cookies?
A cookie is a small simple file that is sent along with pages of our website and stored by your browser on the hard drive of your computer or other device. The information stored in it may be returned to our servers or to the servers of the relevant third parties on a subsequent visit.

Cookies transmit small amounts of data about your device to our web server. They enable websites to recognise your computer, smartphone, or other device when you browse the internet. Tracking pixels, pixels, JavaScript and other tracking technologies also use cookies, invisible images or invisible codes that collect data about a user's visit to the website in a similar way to cookies. Depending on how long a cookie remains stored, we may refer to cookies as session cookies or persistent cookies:

i) Session cookies
A session cookie is deleted when you close the website in question. A session cookie allows a website to recognise you while you browse the website, but the cookie is deleted when you log out or close the website in your browser. 

ii) Permanent cookies
A persistent cookie recognises you again and again for a set period of time. It remains stored on your device or in your browser for this period (which can be minutes, days, or months) after you have logged out or closed the browser. Persistent cookies are used, for example, to store certain settings you have made on a website (such as your preferred language).  

Cookies we use 
The cookies that may be used by us can further be categorised as:

i) Essential or Necessary cookies
These cookies are needed to ensure that this website works properly and is secure so that you can navigate the website and use its features. At the same time, we store your preferences regarding our use of cookies on your device. Without these cookies, certain features of the website would not be available. You would also not be able to use certain services on the website. These cookies do not collect any of your data for marketing purposes and they are not used to monitor your activity on the internet generally.

ii) Functional cookies
These cookies allow a website to remember the options you have selected (including user ID, disclaimer consent and your preferred language), your username if applicable, and any custom settings you have made (e.g., font sizes) or personalisation options you have selected when browsing. It may also be used to provide you with certain services that you may use. 


The legal basis for the use of technically non-essential cookies (cookies used to analyse your behaviour on a website (analytical cookies) or cookies used to display advertisements to you (advertising cookies)) is your consent given voluntarily when you first visit a website as part of a cookie banner. However, as our website does not currently use non-essential cookies, the need to obtain consent is not required.

 

How to delete and block cookies?
If you do not want cookies to collect information, you can change the setting in your internet browser. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including necessary cookies), you may not be able to access parts or all of my website. Disabling or deleting cookies does not prevent devices from being identified and associated data from being collected. This can only be achieved by changing your browser settings.

 

Why do I provide information about cookies?
The legal basis for the collection of your Personal Data through cookies, including for profiling and analytical purposes, is your consent. The use of necessary cookies however is our legitimate interest and as such no consent would be required.
