There are two types of cookies – session and persistent cookies. Cookies are also classified as first-party or third-party cookies. The following text explains these concepts so that you can better understand what cookies are and why we use them.

Session cookies allow recognizing you when you visit a particular website by remembering any changes or choices you make on that particular website so that they persist on other pages. These cookies allow you to quickly and easily use multiple pages of the same website, avoiding the need to process each page you visit. Session cookies are not permanent – they will expire when you close your web browser or end your session on that website.

Persistent cookies are cookies that are stored on your computer for a specific time after the end of a web browsing session, so they allow the user’s choices or behaviour on the website to be saved and used the next time the user visits the website.

First-party cookies are cookies maintained by entities administered by the website operator.

Third-party cookies are maintained by other domains that do not belong to us. Third-party cookies may be stored on your computer, phone or tablet when you browse our website.
