We have included in this section a detailed explanation of all the cookies we use on our site.
3.1 Cookie Classification
We use two classifications of cookies: Cookies that are defined as “strictly necessary” are required in order to allow routine, safe operation of the website.
Cookies that are defined as “not strictly necessary” are cookies which are not required for base functionality of our website, but which may be used for analytical purposes and to provide enhanced used experience.
There are four types of cookies on our websites which fall under the above two classifications, namely session cookies, persistent cookies, first party cookies, and third party cookies.
3.2 Session cookies
A session cookie exists only while the user is reading and navigating the website. Session cookies enable users to carry out essential tasks on our site, without them the site will not function correctly. This type of cookie expires as soon as you exit the browser you are using to view our website.
3.3 Persistent cookies
A persistent cookie will outlast a user’s session. This could be used to record a vital piece of information such as how the user initially came to this website or to record details about the last browsing session on the site. For this reason persistent cookies are also called tracking cookies.
3.4 First party cookies
These are cookies which are set to use the website’s own domain. For example, if the website address is blog.example.com, the first party cookie’s domain will be set to .example.com.
3.4 Third party cookies
Third party cookies are not related to or controlled by us. Third party cookies are used by our business partners.
