Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, cookies may be issued when you visit Our Sites. This Cookie Notice shall be integral part of Our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. The words starting with capital letter shall have the meaning ascribed to it under Our Privacy Policy and/or Terms of Use, unless specifically defined herein.

We use strictly necessary cookies to make Our Sites work. We and our partners also use additional cookies and similar technologies to collect information when you interact with Our Site to improve your experience including, to provide you with tailored content, personalized experience, and analyze site usage.

If the site has a “Manage Cookies” button, you can view, change and manage your cookie settings at any time. By clicking “Accept All,” you consent to the placement of these additional cookies and similar technologies.

Cookies and Similar Technologies we use

We use technologies to allow access and store information (for example by using a Cookie) or use resources (for example by running a script) on a User’s device as they interact with Our Sites. For simplicity, all such technologies are defined as “Trackers” within this document – unless there is a reason to differentiate. For example, while Cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to talk about Cookies in the context of mobile apps as they are a browser-based Tracker. For this reason, within this document, the term Cookies is only used where it is specifically meant to indicate that particular type of Tracker.

Some of the purposes for which Trackers are used may also require the User’s consent. Whenever consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.

Validity and third-party cookies

The validity and expiration periods of first-party Cookies and other similar Trackers may vary depending on the lifetime set. Some of them expire upon termination of the User’s browsing session. If you access or request to diverted to a third-party site, kindly check their websites for more information as we do not control third party cookies or similar technologies used by them. To find more information dedicated to country specific privacy rights, Users may read the respective privacy policy provided in Our platform.

Managing cookies and similar technologies

There are various ways to manage Tracker related preferences and to provide and withdraw consent, where relevant: A) Users can manage preferences related to Trackers from directly within their own device settings, for example, by preventing the use or storage of Trackers. B) Additionally, whenever the use of Trackers is based on consent, Users can provide or withdraw such consent by setting their preferences within the cookie notice or by updating such preferences accordingly via the relevant consent-preferences widget, if available. C) It is also possible, via relevant browser or device features, to delete previously stored Trackers, including those used to remember the User’s initial consent. D) Other Trackers in the browser’s local memory may be cleared by deleting the browsing history. E) If you prefer not to be tracked through click URLs, please do not click text or graphic links in emails you receive from us.

Users may also manage certain categories of Trackers used on mobile apps by opting out through relevant device settings, such as the device advertising settings for mobile devices, or tracking settings in general (Users may open the device settings, view and look for the relevant setting).
