  1. Cookie Law

This Cookie Policy is to inform you as to how we look after your personal data when you visit and browse our website and tell you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

Your personal data and the way we collect online identifiers through cookies and other tracking technologies are regulated by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (also known as GDPR), the Directive on privacy and electronic communications 2002/58/EC (also known as the ePrivacy Directive) amended by the Directive 2009/136/EC (also known as the Cookie Directive). For the purposes of the provision of our services, we also comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018.

In summary, to comply with the law, we need to give clear information about what the cookies are used for, why, and obtain consent from you, the user. These are the objectives this Policy is set out to achieve.

  1. Types of cookies and purpose

Cookies can be categorised in many ways, one is with regards to their longevity, i.e. for how long they are stored in your browser. According to this classification, cookies can either be:

  • Session cookies: temporary cookies that identify and track users within our website. These are automatically deleted by your browser when you close your browser or end the session; and
  • Persistent cookies: cookies which enable our website to ‘remember’ who you are and your preferences within our website. These cookies are stored in your browser (the specific location depends on the browser and version) for a period of time.

We assess the cookies present in our website periodically, to ensure they are aligned with the requirements of current legislation. For instance, we remove persistent cookies set to hold data for an excessive period of time, which do not meet the principle of storage limitation.
