This Cookies Policy forms part of our general Privacy Policy.

In common with most other websites, we use cookies to help us understand how people use our Website and Services so that we can keep improving our Website and Services and your browsing experience. We have created this Cookies Policy to provide you with clear and explicit information about the cookies that we use on our Website. Further, this Cookies Policy shows ways on how to block or disable cookies using your browser settings or third party add-ons identified in this policy.


Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit the Website. They enable our Website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the website or browse from one page to another. Cookies can be extremely useful, because they improve the browsing experience when you return to a site you have already visited several times. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer when you have gone offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.

We use our own cookies to recognize you when you visit our Website. This means that you do not have to log in each time you visit, and we can remember your preferences and settings including your consent to our use of cookies on our Website. These cookies are essential for the Website and its functionalities and aim to enhance the performance of the Website as well as your browsing experience.

In addition to our own cookies, we work with various reputable third party service providers to help us analyse how our Website is used. These services allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our Website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
