A “cookie” is a small piece of information that a website assigns to your device while you are viewing a website. Cookies are beneficial and can be used for various purposes. These purposes include allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, enabling automatic activation of certain features, remembering your preferences and making the interaction between you and our Services quicker and easier. Cookies are also used to help ensure that the advertisements you see are relevant to you and your interests and to compile statistical data on your use of our Services.
The Site uses the following types of cookies:
a. ‘session cookies’ which are stored only temporarily during a browsing session to allow normal use of the system and are deleted from your device when the browser is closed;
b. ‘persistent cookies’, which are read-only by the Site, saved on your computer for a fixed period and are not deleted when the browser is closed. Such cookies are used where we need to know who you are for repeat visits, for example, to allow us to store your preferences for the next sign-in;
c. ‘third-party cookies’, which are set by other online services who run content on the page you are viewing, for example, by third-party analytics companies who monitor and analyse our web access.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but Personal Information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. You may remove the cookies by following the instructions of your device preferences. If you choose to disable cookies, some features of our Site may not operate properly, and your online experience may be limited.
We also use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about your site use. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users access the Site, which pages they visit, when they do so, etc. We use the information we obtain from Google Analytics only to improve our Site and services.
Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit sites, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the data collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information.
