What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small files of letters and numbers stored on your browser or device that enable the cookie owner to recognize the device when it visits websites or uses online services. The cookie contains a unique code that allows us to recognize your browser during your visit to our website (called a “session” cookie) or later at repeated visits (called “persistent” cookie). Each cookie is unique to your web browser. The website you visit may set cookies directly known as first-party cookies or may trigger cookies set by other domain names known as third-party cookies. While we may automatically use some cookies that are strictly necessary to provide the services you request or enable communications, we request your consent for all our other cookie uses.

Types of Cookies We Use

We may use the following types of cookies:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies: Our website requires the use of these cookies to properly operate or provide necessary functions relating to the services you request. They include, for example, cookies enabling you to securely log into our website or adjusting your consent preferences. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information. These are persistent cookies that generally last one (1) year.
  • Functionality Cookies: These cookies enable helpful but non-essential website functions that improve your website experience. By recognizing you when you return to our website, they may, for example, allow us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, or remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). These cookies may enable visitor identification over time but not across different websites. These are persistent cookies that generally last up to one (1) year.
  • Analytical Cookies: These cookies allow us and our third-party service providers 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 improve how our website works by, for example, ensuring that users can easily find what they need on our website. These cookies may generate aggregate statistics that are not associated with an individualized profile and are persistent cookies that generally last up to two (2) years.
  • Performance Cookies: These cookies allow us and our third-party service providers to understand and analyze key performance indexes of the website. This helps us deliver a better experience for users on the website. These cookies may generate aggregate statistics that are not associated with an individualized profile and are persistent cookies that generally last up to two (2) years.
  • Advertisement Cookies: These cookies enable different advertising-related functions. They may allow us or our third-party service providers to record information about your visit to our website, such as pages visited, links followed, and videos viewed so we can make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. These cookies may also allow us and our third-party service providers to analyze the effectiveness of ad campaigns. Finally, these cookies may enable visitor identification across websites and over time. We may also share the information with third parties for similar purposes. These are persistent cookies that generally last three (3) months.

Except for strictly necessary cookies, all first-party cookies set by this site will expire no later than two (2) years after your last website visit. Third-party cookie expiration periods are set by their respective owners.

Processing Details

We use cookies in accordance with the purposes described in our Cookie Policy.

The use of essential or necessary cookies ensures data security on our website and that you can use the website without technical problems.

This is usually the case after three (3) years starting with the end of the year in which the data was collected.
