Our cookie policy

What’s a cookie?

A “cookie” is a piece of information that is stored on your computer’s storage by a website. The cookie can be read by the website that created it, and used to set or preset the behaviour of the website depending on your previous activity. For example, when you log in to your account, we will set a cookie on your computer with an identifier; so you do not have to log in again when you return within a specific interval.

Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your system.

If you want to check or change what types of cookies you accept, this can usually be altered within your browser settings. However, if you use your browser settings to block any or all cookies, our website may not function correctly for you.

Upon your first visit to our website, we prompt you to let us know what cookies you consent to use storing and retrieving.
