Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but allow you to modify security settings so that you can approve or reject cookies on a case-by-case basis or reject all cookies. You can configure your web browser to remove cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” section.
Also, you are free to delete any existing cookies at any time. If you delete or disable cookies from our Site, some parts or functions of the Site may not work properly for you.
In this Policy, we refer to all information collected from or about you, including but not limited to Personal Information and Non-Personal Information, as “Your Information.”
We use “session ID cookies” to uniquely identify a user’s browsing session and enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor web traffic routing on the Site and aggregate usage of the Service.
We use “persistent cookies” to save your username and login password to make it convenient for future logins to the website.
We use Google’s “analytics” cookies which, in conjunction with our web server’s log files, allow us to identify user trend information. These cookies may be used to estimate the aggregate number of people visiting our web site, the date and time of a user’s visit to the web site, the pages a user has viewed and the time spent by users at the web site. This helps us gather information that we can use to tailor and improve the web site and better serve our users.
Google remarketing is a way to recognise people who previously interacted with our website. It can allow us to strategically position promote or advertise to previous visitors to our website as they browse Google or their partner websites, helping us increase our brand awareness or remind those audiences about the services and products we provide.
We also use the Facebook pixel. This cookie operates in a different way and is used in conjunction with the promotion or advertising of products and/or services delivered to a user of our website on Facebook. This information can then be used to ensure that our Facebook advertising is seen by users most likely to be interested in such advertising by analysing which content a user has viewed and interacted with on this web site.
