What Are Cookies?
Cookies are pieces of code that allow for personalisation of our Website experience by saving your information such as user ID and other preferences. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your device’s hard disk (such as your computer or smartphone) for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can then be used to make site navigation more efficient, help remember your preferences and generally improve your browsing experience. They can also ensure that advertisements that you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. They may be served by the entity that operates the website you are visiting (“first-party cookies”) or by other companies (“third-party cookies”).
What Types Of Cookies We Use And How We Use Them?
- Cookie Type Purpose and Use Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the Website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in, remembering the goods you ordered when you get to the checkout page or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work
- Functional Cookies
These cookies enable the Website to provide services or to remember settings to improve your visit. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages, including social media sites. For example, these cookies help us remember your choice of language or region, show you have logged into our website, or help you share information on a social media website like Facebook. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly
- Performance Cookies
These cookies help us understand how visitors interact with our Website by allowing us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. These cookies are used to provide statistics on how our website is used, how you move around our website and the pages you visit, how effective our advertisements are, and measuring any errors that occur. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous
- Targeting Cookies
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners including social media sites. They may be used by those companies, including social media, to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites, also known as “interest based advertising.” These cookies uniquely identify your browser and internet device and observe your behaviors and browsing activities over time across multiple websites or other platforms. For more information on our interest-based advertising see section 4 below. Some of these cookies are temporary (“Session Cookies”) while other may stay on your browser until you delete them manually or until your browser deletes them based on the duration period set within the cookie (“Persistent Cookies”).

How You can Opt-Out of Interest-Based Advertising
You have the ability to opt-out of interest-based advertising on web browsers in the following ways:
- For information on how our advertising partners allow you to opt out of receiving ads based on your web browsing history, to exercise choice for companies participating in this tool, visit The Digital Advertising Alliance’s Resource. You can also visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s online resources at http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices. European users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising through the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance
- You may control your advertising preferences or opt-out of certain Google advertising products by visiting the Google Ads Preferences Manager, currently available at https://google.com/ads/preferences or by vising NAI’s online resources referenced above. Additionally, your mobile device operating system may provide mechanisms that allow users to opt out of the use of information about their usage of mobile apps to deliver targeted ads to their mobile device. For more information, or to opt out using these mechanisms, consult your device settings. Please note that opting-out of receiving interest-based advertising through the NAI’s and DAA’s or Your Online Choices online resources will only opt-out a user from receiving interest-based ads on that specific browser or device, but the user may still receive interest-based ads on his or her other devices. You must perform the opt-out on each browser or device you use. Choices you make are both browser and device-specific. Some of these opt-outs may not be effective unless your browser is set to accept cookies. If you delete cookies, change your browser settings, switch browsers or computers, or use another operating system, you will need to opt-out again.
