Cookie Policy

Last updated March 26, 2019

This Cookie Policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites. It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

In some cases we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

WHY DO WE USE COOKIES?

Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal

information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies. The cookies used on this website include those which are strictly necessary cookies for access and navigation, cookies that track usage (performance cookies) and remember your choices (functionality cookies).

We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:

  • to recognize your computer when you visit our website,
  • to retain your email addresse and password when you log in to your Account,
  • to track you as you navigate our website,
  • to improve the website’s usability i.e. our Live Chat application to answer questions you have in real time,
  • to analyze the use of our website – such as how many people visit us each day,
  • in the administration of our website.

COOKIES USED ON OUR WEBSITE

Category of Use

Description

Security

We use cookies to enable and support our security features, for example: to authenticate Users, prevent fraudulent use of login credentials, and protect User data from unauthorized parties.

Preferences

When you are signed in to your account, cookies help us display the correct information and personalize your experience, by providing you with features, insights, and customized content. They can also help you fill out forms more easily, e.g., RFI forms. Loss of the information stored in a preference cookie may make the Site experience less functional, but should not prevent it from working.

Session State

We collect information about how our Users and Users use and interact with the Site. This may include the pages Users visit most often and when and where Users get error messages. We use these “session state cookies” to help us improve our Site and Services. Blocking or deleting these cookies will not prevent the Site from working.

Analytics

These cookies help us learn how our Site performs in different locations. We use cookies to understand and improve our Services and features.   

Marketing

We use cookies to execute marketing campaigns and track their performance and conversion. For example, to determine which page mostly precedes the purchase and update your experience.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU DON’T WANT COOKIES TO BE SET?

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device to be intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although cookies are generally quite harmless, you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests using your browser history. If you prefer, you may choose to block some or all cookies, or even to delete cookies that have already been set; but you should be aware that you might lose some functions of the website.

If you want to restrict or block the cookies that are set by our Site, or any other site, you can do so through your browser setting. The ‘Help’ function in your browser should explain how. Alternatively, you can visit ​www.aboutcookies.org,​ which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers. You will find general information about cookies and details on how to delete cookies from your machine.

To opt-out of third-parties collecting any data regarding your interaction on our Site, please refer to their websites for further information.

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com

WHAT ABOUT OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES, LIKE WEB BEACONS?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

HOW OFTEN WILL YOU UPDATE THIS COOKIE POLICY?

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.

The date at the top of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
