cookies and why do we use them?
Cookies are small files that we may send to your browser when you first use the site, which are then stored on your device in order to remember information about you (such as login details). Those cookies are set by us and are called first-party cookies.
We also use third-party cookies—which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the site you are visiting—for our advertising and marketing efforts.
Necessary Cookies: These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Site or to comply with legal requirements. These cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions taken by you which amount to a request for services.
They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our site or help to ensure the content of pages loads quickly. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of our site will not work then.
Analytical or Performance Cookies – These allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Site when they are using them. This helps us to improve the way our Site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site.
We also use pixels (also referred to as web beacons, clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs). A pixel contains a tiny image that may be embedded within web pages and emails, requiring a call (which provides a device and visit information) to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interact with ads or posts.
Cookies and pixels collect data about you but are typically constructed with privacy by design. Only the server that sets the cookie can retrieve the data it collects, and the data is often collected on an anonymized basis.

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests.

They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission.
