5. Nature of cookies

  • 5.1

    Many jurisdictions require or recommend that website operators inform users/visitors as to the nature of cookies they utilize and, in certain circumstances, obtain the consent of their users to the placement of certain cookies.

    The Websites include third party social media features, such as the Facebook Like button, and third party widgets, such as the "Share This" button or interactive mini-programs that run on the Websites. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on the Websites, and set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Your interaction with these features is governed by the privacy policy of the third party company providing it.

    We may use any of the following categories of cookies on the Websites as detailed below.

    Each cookie falls within one of the four following categories:

    Category Description
    Essential Cookies Essential cookies (First Party Cookies) are sometimes called “strictly necessary” as without them we cannot provide many services that you need on the Website. For example, essential cookies help remember your preferences as you move around the Website.

For example: analyze visitor and user behavior so as to provide more relevant content or suggest certain activities.
