Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Afterwards, cookies are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device. They serve the purpose of making our Service more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies also make it possible for our system to recognize your browser and offer you the best possible configuration.

We use cookies to collect information about the use of the Website and Services.

Each cookie distinguishes you from other Users and Website visitors. Some other techniques, such as web beacons or pixels, have similar purposes to cookies. In this Cookie Policy, the word “cookie” designates the objects delivered by those techniques as well.

  1. Types of cookies

In general, there are three different ways to classify cookies: how long they endure, their provenance and what purpose they serve.


  • Duration

Session cookies  – These cookies are temporary and expire once you close your browser (or once your session ends).


Persistent cookies – This category encompasses all cookies that remain on your hard drive until you erase them, or your browser does, depending on the cookie’s expiration date. All persistent cookies have an expiration date written into their code, but their duration can vary.


  • Provenance

First-party cookies – As the name implies, first-party cookies are put on your device directly by us.

Third-party cookies – These are the cookies that are placed on your device, not by us, but by a third party like an advertiser or an analytic system. Some third-party cookies (for example, Google Analytics) gather information about your browsing activities over time and across different websites, which may result in advertisements or other messages being displayed to you based on your browsing history.


Information on whether these are first-party or third-party cookies please check the category ‘provider’ below. Please read the privacy policies of such third parties to understand their processing of personal data.
