As is common practice with almost all professional websites this site uses cookies, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer cellphone, or portable table, to improve your experience. This page describes what information they gather, how we use it and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored locally; however, this may downgrade or ‘break’ certain elements of the sites functionality and prevent some functionality.

We use cookies for a variety of reasons detailed below.

In some instances, you may be prompted dynamically, upon or upon use of a feature, if a certain cookie can be saved and enabled, or if you accept to enable some or all cookies. We will only implement a dynamic link if required by a third-party site.

Third Party Cookies

In some special cases, we also use cookies provided by trusted third parties. The following section details some of the third-party cookies you might encounter through this site.

  • Chat-box pop-ups from third party sites, for example discussion with an AI bot may add a cooking to your interaction to keep track of the demand. Such a cooking will normally be erased when you leave the chat function or close the browser.
  • Ad-retargeting services may also create cooking to collect code to store internet history, browsing history and generating ads targeting for the browser. While we plan to avoid the use of such cookies, some may residually be present.
