What cookies are and how we use them
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is stored on your device when you visit a website and contains information that is transferred to your computer. This information is sent back to the website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie.
- to remember visitors’ preferences, such as, font size, language choice or region; and
- to collect information about how visitors use our website, for example, which pages are visited and the duration of the visit.

As a visitor in one of those countries, you may consent to our placing of cookies on your device, in one of two ways (depending on the website visited); either you select the box to “accept cookies from this website” which will appear in a dedicated pop-up (a cookie banner), and you click on “Confirm”. Or, you continue to browsing the site after receipt of a cookie banner informing you that by continuing to browse the website you consent to our placing of cookies on your device. In both cases, you can change your mind at any time by opting-out (see below for more information).
