What are cookies ?

Cookies are small text files that are used to store small pieces of information. The cookies are stored on your device when the website is loaded on your browser. These cookies help us make the website function properly, make the website more secure, provide better user experience, and understand how the website performs, how you use it and ultimately helps us analyze where we can improve it and provide you with a great user experience.

How do we use cookies ?

As most online services, our website uses both first-party cookies and third-party cookies for a number of purposes. The first-party cookies are mostly necessary for the website to function in the right way, and they do not collect any of your personally identifiable data.

The third-party cookies used on our websites are used mainly for understanding how the website performs, how you interact with our website, keeping our services secure, providing advertisements that are relevant to you, and all in all providing you with a better and improved user experience and help speed up your future interactions with our website.

What types of cookies do we use ?

Like most websites on the internet, we also use cookies. Each cookie or online identifier has its own unique role, but in general they can be divided into some main categories: necessary, performance, preference and marketing cookies.

We use performance cookies, but they don’t identify you, therefore do not fall under the scope of personal data. These cookies collect information about how you use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, which we manage with the help of Google Analytics. This is used to improve our website and therefore overall business practices.

Necessary cookies are the ones that enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. As the name suggests, these are the cookies that enable you to even use our site, since without them we cannot properly display you our website content.

Preference cookies are the ones that can adjust the content of the website based on parameters like your location. We don’t customize our website content and therefore do not use such cookies.

Marketing cookies are the ones we use to optimize our business processes. For example, these are the cookies that track which blog posts you read while on our website and we do use such cookies.

Whenever this is not based on legitimate interest, we ask your consent to use such cookies and additionally you can manage your preference at any later time as well.
