We have listed below some examples of the tracking technologies used on our Services:

  1. Cookies.  A cookie is a small data file sent from a website to your browser that is stored on your device. Cookies are used for a number of purposes, including to display the most appropriate content based on your interests and activity on our Services, estimate and report our Service's total audience size and traffic, and conduct research to improve our Services.

The following cookies may be used:

  1. Functional cookies . These are used to remember the selections you make on the Site so that your selections are saved for your next visits;
  2. Analytical cookies . These allow Us to improve the design and functionality of the site by collecting data on how you access the site, for example data on the content you access, how long you stay on the site, etc;
  3. Targeting cookies . These collect data on how you use the site and your preferences. This allows Us to personalise the information you see on the site for you; and
