Use of cookies

A cookie is a piece of data (text files), which can be stored on a device, such as a PC, a mobile device or any other device that can store information. Cookies collect information like IP addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to you by your Internet service provider so you may access the Internet. Although we do receive IP addresses, we do not use them to identify you personally or disclose them to others.

Below is a detailed list of the cookies we use on our websites. Our websites are scanned with our cookie scanning tool regularly to maintain a list as accurate as possible
