Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you
visit a specific website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their
websites work, or to work more efficiently as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner called “first 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., like
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.

Why do we use cookies?

We and our third-party partners use first-party and third-party cookies for different reasons,
including to see which areas and features are popular and to count to visits to our Sites.
Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Sites to operate, and we
refer to these as “essential cookies” or “strictly necessary cookies”. Other cookies enable us
to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Sites. Third
parties serve cookies through our Sites for advertising, analytics, improving user experience,
and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through our Site and purposes they
perform are described below.

These allow us to operate the website better and they make our website more user-friendly for the visitors. For example, we store your login details or what you
have put in your shopping cart.

These ensure that an anonymous cookie is generated every
time you visit a website. These cookies know whether you have visited the site before or
not. Only on the first visit, a cookie is created and on subsequent visits the existing cookie is
used. This cookie is only for statistical purpose. For example, the following data can be

  • the number of unique visitors
  • how often users visit the site
  • which pages users view
  • how long users view a certain page

cookies. These cookies are therefore not placed without your permission.

These allow us to test different versions of a webpage to see
which one works best. We use this to ensure that our users are always presented with the most optimal version.

How are other tracking technologies, like web beacons and device fingerprinting, used?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other,
similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels”
or “clear gifs”) or via the use of JavaScript (placed within the code of our Sites). Web
beacons are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize
when someone has visited our Sites or opened an email that we have sent them. JavaScript
is short code built into our Sites and these scripts activate when you request an HTML page
with JavaScript in it. the script is sent to the browser and sever a similar purpose to a Web
Beacon as, if the script is initiated, it allows us to infer you have either opened or done
something on a particular page.

These technologies allow us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one
page within our Sites to another, count visits, to deliver or communicate with cookies to
understand whether you have come to our Sites from an online advertisement displayed on
a third-party website, to improve Site performance, monitor Site navigation patterns and
feature usage, and understand email reads and marketing campaign effectiveness. In many
instances these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining
cookies will impair their functioning. We may also use “device fingerprinting” or “browser
fingerprinting”. This is technology used to identify particular machines or browsers in order
to detect and prevent fraud and for information and network security. Declining cookies
may not affect or browser fingerprinting.
