Cookie Policy

Our websites and our mobile applications use cookies to distinguish you from other users.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive. Cookies allow us to, amongst other things, collect information about your computer, including your IP address, your operating system and your browser type. Cookies allow us to enhance your experience and deliver a more personalised service by ensuring, for instance, that you don’t need to re-type your login details every time you visit. They also allow us to protect our own interests, so as to be able to monitor compliance with our terms of use and to protect other users.

We use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our websites and our mobile applications. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control.

You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
