1. What is a Cookie
A “cookie” is a text file with a small amount of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system or device. It can enable you to use certain functionality of the website, and to provide you with a tailored visitor experience. Cookies are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie and your device. Cookies can remember your preferences, track your usage, and allow for a personalized user experience.
2.1. Strictly necessary cookies
Some of the cookies we use are necessary to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as registering to access secure areas of the website. This category of cookies cannot be disabled. We use the strictly necessary cookies for tracking visitor login and for the session identifier used when logging in.
2.2. Data Analytics
2.3. Collecting additional information
We may also use tracking technologies to determine whether you have read, clicked on, or forwarded certain email communications that we send to you, so that we can make our communications more helpful and interesting. If you do not wish us to confirm whether you have opened, clicked on or forwarded our communications, you will need to unsubscribe, as it is not possible for us to send these emails without tracking enabled. Registered subscribers can update their communication preferences at any time by contacting us, or you can unsubscribe following the instructions in the individual email communications you receive from us. Cookies can store information from forms that you fill out on our website so that next time you visit, you do not have to re-enter this information. For example, this would allow you to enter your zip code (or local equivalent) so that next time you visit, you can automatically see local content from your area, including local pricing.
2.4. Other cookies
3. How to opt out of Cookie usage
You can opt-out of having your anonymized browsing activity within websites recorded by analytics cookies. Please bear in mind that removing or blocking cookies can impact your visitor experience and parts of this website may no longer be fully accessible. Most browsers will allow you to see what cookies you have and delete them on an individual basis or block cookies from particular or all websites. Be aware that any preference you have set will be lost if you delete all cookies, including your preference to opt-out from cookies as this itself requires an opt-out cookie to have been set. You cannot remove or block web beacons, as they form part of the content of the web pages rather than placing information on your computer. However, because they work in conjunction with cookies, turning off cookies will prevent web beacons from tracking your visitor activity. The web beacon will record an anonymous visit, but cookies will not be recorded.
