What are Cookies and what information do they collect?
Like most companies, we automatically collect and store certain information from visitors to Our Websites. This may include your browser type, your IP address or device ID, operating system, the pages you access on the website or services, the time spent on those pages, access dates and times, location data, and the page you visited before coming to one of Our Websites. We use this information to monitor, analyze and administer the website and services, and to better tailor them to your needs.
To collect this information, we use a variety of technological tools including cookies and pixel tags. A cookie is a small data text file which a website stores on your computer’s hard drive, if permitted by your browser. A cookie can later be retrieved to identify you. Each cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie and usually the IP address or another unique number of the device, and thus may contain personal information.
A pixel tag (also known as a “clear GIF” or “web beacon”) is a tiny image – typically just one-pixel – that can be placed on a web page or in an email to you, to tell us when you have displayed that page or opened that email.
Session and Persistent Cookies
Our Websites may place session and persistent cookies on your browser. The difference between a session and a persistent cookie relates to the length of time the cookie lasts. Session cookies are cookies that typically last for as long as you are using your browser or browser session. When you end your browser session, the cookie expires. Persistent cookies, as the name implies, will last after you close your browser.
Types of Cookies, purpose of Cookies and Legal Basis for Cookies?
There are different types of cookies:

The legal basis for the collection of information through the use of strictly necessary cookies is contract performance (if we concluded a contract on the use of the website with you) or legitimate interests of us or our third parties, such as the provision of an operational website.
- Functionality cookies: Functionality cookies enable us to store the selections and settings made by you (e.g. language, region, account preferences). If you disable functionality cookies, the functionality of the website may be affected. The legal basis for the collection of information through functionality cookies is your consent.
- Analytics cookies and targeting/advertising cookies: Analytics cookies allow us to collect information on the use and scope of the website by individual users. This includes whether a user has visited the website previously, the website the user comes from, the overall site usage and areas that users prefer. This allows us to improve the performance of the website and the user’s experience on the website. These cookies also allow us to analyze the efficacy of our marketing activities.

First Party and Third Party Cookies
Our Websites may place first party cookies and allow third parties to place cookies on your device. First party cookies are cookies that we place, and they enable us to operate an efficient service and to track the patterns of behavior of visitors to the website. Third party cookies, on the other hand, are placed on your device by a third party (i.e., not by us). While we may allow third parties to access Our Websites to place these cookies on users’ devices, we do not retain control over the information supplied by the cookies, nor do we retain access to that data. This information is controlled wholly by that third party and subject to their privacy notice. The legal basis for the collection of information through third party cookies depends on the type of cookie, please see below.
