Cookie settings and storage

Cookies can be set by the website you are visiting (‘first-party cookies’), or by a third-party website that provides content on the website you are viewing (‘third-party cookies’).

Cookies can be stored for varying lengths of time, either for the duration of your browsing session or for much longer.

Temporary or session cookie: A cookie that enables us to link your actions during a browsing session. The session begins when you open a browser window and ends when you close it. Session cookies are created temporarily and are deleted when you close your browser window.

Different types of cookies

There are four main types of cookies:

Essential cookies: These cookies are crucial as they enable navigation around the website and the use of website features or for providing services you have requested. For example, to store products you have added to your online shopping cart. We do not require your permission to use these cookies.

Functional cookies: These cookies allow the website to remember your choices (such as your username, language, or region you are in) and provide you with enhanced and more personalized features. For example, the website may provide you with local weather forecasts or traffic news by using a cookie to store information about the region you are currently in, remember your changes to text size, font, and other parts of the website that are customizable, and provide you with requested services such as viewing videos or commenting on a blog. The information collected by these cookies may be anonymized, and these cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how you use the website. For example, which pages you visit most often and if you receive error messages from them. These cookies do not collect information that identifies you. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. This information is used only to improve the performance of the website.

Targeting cookies or third-party advertising cookies: These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. Typically, they are placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website, and this information is shared with other organizations, such as advertisers. Targeting or advertising cookies are often linked to the functionality of the website provided by another organization.
