Cookies are small text files that are used to store small pieces of information. They are stored on your device when the website is loaded on your browser. These cookies help us make the website function properly, make it more secure, and analyze how the website performs, what works, and where it needs improvement.
This website only uses first-party cookies. Other types of cookies are also described below for user information only.
First-party cookies are installed directly by the website the user is visiting (i.e. the URL shown in the browser's address bar). These cookies enable website owners to collect analytics data, remember language settings, and perform other useful functions that provide a good user experience.
Third-party cookies are installed by third parties with the aim of collecting certain information from web users to carry out research into, for example, behavior, demographics, or spending habits. They are commonly used by advertisers who want to ensure that products and services are marketed toward the right demographic.
Session cookies, also known as 'temporary cookies', help websites recognize users and the information provided when they navigate through a website. Session cookies only retain information about a user's activities for as long as they are on the website. Once the web browser is closed, the session cookies are deleted. These are commonly used on shopping websites or e-commerce websites.
Permanent cookies, also known as 'persistent cookies', remain in operation even after the web browser has closed. For example, they can remember login details and passwords so web users don't need to re-enter them every time they use a site.
Flash cookies, also known as 'super cookies', are independent of the web browser. They are designed to be permanently stored on a user's computer. These types of cookies remain on a user's device even after all cookies have been deleted from their web browser.
Zombie cookies are a type of flash cookie that is automatically re-created after a user has deleted them. This means they are difficult to detect or manage. They are often used in online games to prevent users from cheating but have also been used to install malicious software onto a user's device.
