What categories of cookies do we use?
Our Website uses first-party cookies (which are served directly by us to your computer or device) and third-party cookies (which are served by a third party on our behalf). We classify the cookies into the following categories:
Essential cookies. These cookies are strictly necessary to enable you to access different parts of the Website. These cookies will be saved on your device as long as you visit and browse the Website, or during a limited time. These cookies are necessary for the Website to function and cannot be switched off.
Performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use the Website, for example, which pages are visited the most often. This helps us to improve the way our Website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. These cookies collect anonymous information on the pages visited and do not include any identifiable information about the Website visitor.

Marketing cookies. These cookies are used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you and your interests. These are generally placed by advertising networks, such as Google. These cookies only use anonymous identifiers and have no way of associating identifiable users.
What does consent to cookies mean?
We use different types of cookies that are placed by default (for example Essential cookies), but for certain cookies that are used for marketing, analytics and targeting purposes, we ask your consent. By your consent you choose whether to allow categories of cookies in the cookie banner that appears when you visit the website.
