1. What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or device by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website.
If you visit our website, we may deploy these technologies to provide an online service more suited to the device you visit on. When you visit our website, we collect information about your use of the site, such as information about the device or browser you use to access the site, the way you interact with it, and the IP address your device connects from.

3. What type of cookies do we use?
3.1 First party cookies and third party cookies
3.2 Session cookies vs. persistent cookies
Some of the cookies are ‘session cookies’, which remain only for the duration of your browser session and are deleted when you exit your web browser. Session cookies only last as long as your online session. This means that they will disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser. They are therefore also sometimes referred to as temporary cookies. Others are ‘persistent cookies’, which remain on your device or computer for a period of time after you have exited your web browser. These cookies are sometimes called permanent cookies.
More specifically, we use the below-mentioned cookies for the following purposes:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies
- Analytical/Performance Cookies
- Functional Cookies
- Targeting/Advertisement Cookies
