What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed and stored by a platform on your browser or device. Cookies allow a website owner to distinguish the activities carried out from your device from other website users. Each website can send its cookie to your browser or device if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.
Our website uses different types of cookies. Cookies can be categorised based on several attributes: Session cookies exist just for your session on our websites, and persistent cookies exist for a period of time after your visit.

Third-party cookies are created by other domains and injected on our site by 3rd party services provider we use. These are usually used for online advertising purposes. We utilise both session and persistent cookies and first and third-party cookies.
To better understand this, we've provided a more detailed explanation of the types of cookies we use below, categorised by the purpose of the cookies.
