What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file stored on your computer or mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. We can also use similar digital technologies such as JavaScript and device fingerprints. Together, these digital technologies are referred to as ‘cookies’ in this Cookie Statement. Cookies may be placed by us or by a third party. Cookies assign a unique ID to your device, allowing the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as location, language, font size and other screen preferences) over a given period of time. This saves you the bother of entering the information each time you visit the website or move from page to page. Cookies can also help us to personalise your browsing experience. Moreover, cookies can be used for advertising and marketing purposes and to enable the use of social media.

Some cookies process your personal data, for example the IP address (the electronic address with which devices are connected to the internet) and/or the MAC address (the unique identifier of the device you use). Information can also be collected about the web browser you use to visit our websites, your browsing behaviour and the time and duration of your visit to our websites. If you have created a personal account on our website, certain cookies allow us to see whether you are still logged in.

When we process personal data gathered by cookies, we do so in accordance with the terms of our Privacy Statement.
