What is a Cookie and why we use it?

Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to your browser as you surf the web or an app. Cookies generally do not contain any information that would identify a person. Usually they contain a string of text or "unique identifier". This acts like a label. When a website sees the string of text it set in a cookie, it knows the browser is one it has seen before.

Contrary to a common belief, cookies do not contain software programs, so cannot install anything on a computer. Therefore, our Cookies do not threaten your privacy. Click here for more info on Cookies.

We use cookies on our websites or our apps to provide you with a more relevant and effective experience, including presenting web pages according to your needs or preferences. Furthermore, we respect your privacy and are committed to providing you with the information and tools you need to manage your cookies.
