What are cookies?
Cookies are files or pieces of information that may be stored on your computer (or other internet enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.
The Websites use strictly necessary cookies which are essential to make the Websites work correctly and are strictly necessary in order to enable you to move around the Websites and use its features.
The Websites also uses “analytical” cookies. They allow us to optimize the performance of the Websites in order to enhance your website experience and to make the Websites easier to use and to better tailor the Websites to your interests and needs. The cookies also enable the user to remain logged in to e.g. the subscription service on the Websites. Further, the cookies help speed up your future activities and experience on the Websites by remembering user preferences such as language and font size and user agent properties, e.g. screen resolution and connection speed.
