1. What are Cookies and similar tools?

1.1 Cookies

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Pursuant to applicable legal regulations, cookies may be stored or accessed on your equipment only based on your consent, except for cookies that are strictly necessary in order to provide the services on our Website.

Certain cookies contain personal information, for example, if you click to “save login” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our Website or a user’s general location.

Along with cookies, as explained above, we may also use “Pixel tags”. A pixel tag (also often referred to as a “web beacon” or a “tracking bug”) is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel that is placed on a website or in an email and that is used to monitor your behaviour when visiting a website or sending/receiving an email. Pixel tags can be used for many purposes, including site usage analytics, advertising, auditing andreporting and content and advertising personalization. A pixel tag also provides information about the device you are using, such as the IP address, URL, duration of the visit, web browser and cookies.
