“First party cookies” are cookies set by the owner of the website you visit. “Third party cookies” are cookies set by parties other than the owner of the website. The purpose of third party cookies is to enable third-party features or functionalities to be provided on or through a website (for example advertising, interactive content, and analytics). Third party cookies recognise your computer when you visit the applicable website or certain other websites.

We use both first party and third party cookies for various reasons. Some first party cookies are needed in order for our Website to operate. Other cookies help us to track and target the interest of users of our website in order to enhance the experience on the Website.
The cookies the Website and our application use can be categorised as follows:
Necessary cookies are necessary to make a website usable by enabling basic functions like navigation and access to secure areas of the Website. Without these cookies, our Website cannot function properly.
We make use of external analysis services (Google Analytics) to evaluate this information. If you want to opt-out of this process, you can follow the procedures described below.
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across the web as they use different websites. The purpose of these cookies is twofold i.e. (i) to ensure only ads that are relevant to you will be displayed to you and (ii) to analyse how users of the Website interact with the ads that were placed on the web. For example, instead of only seeing which keywords people search and which ads they click on, we can see how people searching those words or clicking on those ads use our Website. To do this, we use Google Adwords.
