    This policy tells you about the cookies we use, why we use them and how they improve your experience on our website. 

    Cookies are small digital files that websites save locally to your computer or mobile device and enable us to “remember” your visits, actions or preferences. They are commonly used to support various functions on our website. Cookies also help us to understand how effective our website has been to you and improve our communication to you on our services.

    We use cookies to:
    – Make our site work.
    – Collect data on how users navigate our site, which helps us to improve it.
    – Allow you to share our content on social networks.
    – Help us provide relevant advertising to those who may be interested in it.

    – Collect any personal data.
    – Pass personal data to third parties.
    We also use both first-party and third-party cookies on our website.

    “First-party” cookies are set and collected by our website and are generally used to identify language, location preferences or render basic site functionality and are only used when you visit our website.

    “Third-party” cookies are set and collected on our website by third-party providers. These third parties include our partners and service providers, such as advertisers, search engines, social media platforms, or analytics platforms that enable us to improve and personalise your experiences on our websites and deliver relevant content to you. We do not share any data with these third parties that may identify you. These cookies are applied in accordance with the third party’s cookie policy, which we have no control over.

    This website only uses four types of cookies:
