What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored by the browser on your computer or mobile device. The cookie can be read by the company that placed it there so that the browser in use on that device can be recognized. Cookies may provide “aggregate data”, that is, data that counts how many visitors engage in certain actions. They can be read as unique but not identify you as an individual or, in case of registration cookies, can be associated with data that does identify you.

How we use cookies

We may use cookies to let us know when you visit our websites, how you interact with us, to enrich your user experience through status, personalization or security, and to customize your relationship with our websites.

Performance cookies

Performance cookies, often called analytics cookies, collect data from visitors to our sites on a unique but anonymous basis. The results are reported to us as aggregate numbers and trends. We rely on the reports to understand our audiences generally and improve how our websites work.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), which in turn uses performance cookies. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of our websites to (a) evaluate your use of our websites; (b) compile reports on website activity for website operators; and (c) provide website operators with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address that your browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our websites.
