WHAT ARE TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES AND COOKIES
Cookies are widely used in order to make a website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited the Site before or whether you are a new visitor. They can also help to ensure that content you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.
There are two broad categories of cookies:
- First party cookies, served directly by us to your device and are configured to not store information about you personally.
- Third party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf. We use third party cookies for functionality, performance / analytics, advertising, and social media purposes.

These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are ‘permanent cookies’, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by the Site to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
