  1. Types of cookies we use

Cookies that are used by us are referred to as first party cookies. Those used by our partners are third party cookies; this typically occurs when our website incorporates elements from other sites, such as images, social media plug-ins or advertising. When the browser or other software fetches these elements from other sites, they can set cookies as well. 

Session cookies are temporary cookie files, which are erased when you close your browser.  Session Cookies allow users to be recognized within our website.  Choices you make are remembered as you navigate the site. For example, we use session cookies so you don’t get asked for the same information you’ve already given as you move from page to page.

Persistent cookies help us remember your information and settings when you visit our site again. During your visit, you select your preferences, for example your language and jurisdictional preferences and these preferences are remembered, through the use of a persistent cookie, the next time you visit our site. The information stored in persistent cookies is kept for differing time frames, depending on its use.

Cookies used on this website are divided into the following categories:

Essential Cookies – also known as Strictly Necessary or Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential to the basic performance of our website. These cookies are placed automatically, without consent, because the website cannot function properly without these cookies.    Essential Cookies are generally session cookies that enable functions like page navigation, authentication and validation, legal operation of the business and access to secure areas.  They also support fraud prevention.
