What are cookies?
Cookies are small snippets of data created by websites you visit. They are stored locally, function like tiny trackers and play a crucial role on some functions that happen on a website.
In general terms their roles include remembering user login information, saving items in the shopping cart and helping companies create audience-specific ads or to provide reporting information.
A website can use two types of internet cookies: essential cookies and non-essential cookies. The essential cookies are used for the smooth functioning of a website and the non-essential are used to ensure visitors have a more personalized experience.
- Essential cookies might carry information over a network or help provide a specific service requested by the user. However, they usually don’t store any specific or personal data.
- Non-essential cookies like those used to create personalized experiences on a website may keep user data. For this reason, the GDPR covers cookies to make sure no organization is exploiting consumer data gathered by them.
What cookies do we use?
This site uses different types of cookies. Some cookies are placed by third party plugins and services that appear on our pages.
The default cookies used by our platform are session and comment cookies. The session cookies track a user’s session when you log in, and the comment cookies remember a commenter’s details. However currently the session cookies are used by admin users for content management purposes and the comments are not enabled. Therefore no non-essential first-party cookies are being stored.
Third party cookies
Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies.” Third-party cookies enable third-party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g., advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

You can exercise your cookie rights by setting your preferences when visiting our website for the first time in the Cookie Consent Manager.
