What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website.

The next time you visit the same website with the same device, the cookie and the information in it are either sent back to the originating website (First-party cookie) or to another website to which it belongs (Third-party cookie).

By that, the website can detect that it has already been opened using this browser, and in some cases it will then vary the content it shows. Some cookies are extremely useful because they can improve your user experience when you return to a website you have already visited. This assumes that you are using the same device and the same browser as before; if so, cookies will remember your preferences, know how you use the website, and adapt the content you are
shown so that it is more relevant to your personal interests and needs.

First Party Cookies

These are cookies that are set by this website directly.

Third Party Cookies

These are cookies set on your device by other websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type include the sharing buttons across our site, which allow visitors to share content on this site to social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this website.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behavior on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here, and what you click on.

This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. You can find out more about Google’s position with regards to privacy in its privacy policy.
