What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are used to store small pieces of information. They are stored on your device when the website is loaded on your browser. These cookies help us make the website function properly, make it more secure, provide a better user experience, and understand how the website performs and to analyze what works and where it needs improvement.

How do we use cookies?

As most of the online services, our website uses first-party and third-party cookies for several purposes:

First-party cookies: Mostly necessary for the website to function the right way, and they do not collect any of your personally identifiable data.

Third-party cookies: Mainly used for understanding how our website performs, how you interact with our website, keeping our services secure, providing advertisements that are relevant to you, and all in all providing you with a better and improved user experience and help speed up your future interactions with our website.

What types of cookies do we use?

Neccesary: They help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. They do not collect or store any personal information. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.

Marketing: These cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third-party advertisers. These cookies also help us keep track of the efficiency of these ad campaigns.

Analytics: They help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously. These data help us understand and analyze how well the website performs and where it needs improvement.

Preferences: These cookies enable a website to remember information that changes the way the website behaves or looks. They store your settings and browsing preferences like language preferences so that you have a better and efficient experience on future visits to the website.

How long do cookies last?

It is the cookie duration in the customer’s browser from the initial click. It depends on the cookie specification, some of them last for specific days, months or years. On the other hand, others do not have a fixed period:

Session: Which allows websites to link your actions during a browser session. These cookies expire after a browser session so would not be stored longer term.

Persistent: Which allows websites to remember your preferences or actions. These cookies do not expire once the browsing session closes and remain on your device until an expiration date set by the source of the cookie.
