What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. They are widely used to make websites or other online services work or to be better and/or more efficient. They can do this because websites and other online services can read and write these files, enabling them to recognize you and remember important information that will make your use of them more convenient (for example by remembering your user preferences).
What cookies do we use?
Below we list the different types of cookies we may use on the Services.
Essential Cookies. These cookies are essential to the operation of our Services to enable you to move around it and to use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, such as accessing secure areas of a website or paid-for content, cannot be provided. These cookies are essential for using the service and therefore cannot be turned off without severely affecting your use of it.
Functionality cookies allow us to remember the choices you make on the Services and to provide enhanced and more personalized features, such as customizing a certain webpage, remembering if we have asked you to participate in a promotion and for other services you request, like watching a video or commenting on a blog. All of these features help us to improve your visit to the Services.
We and our service providers may use targeting or advertising cookies and other technologies to collect information (e.g. IP address device ID, general location information, etc.) and deliver advertisements on the Services that we believe are more relevant to you and your interests. For example, we may use targeting or advertising cookies to limit the number of times you see the same advertisement off our Services and to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. These cookies remember what you have looked at on the Services and we may share this information with other organizations, such as advertisers.
Third party cookies
In some circumstances, we may work with third parties to provide features on the Services. For example, third-party advertisers and other organisations may use their own cookies to collect information about your activities on the Services and/or the advertisements you have clicked on. This information may be used by them to serve advertisements that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you based on content you have viewed. Third-party advertisers may also use this information to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements. We do not control these cookies and to disable or reject third-party cookies, please refer to the relevant third party’s website.
