Why we use cookies

Our  website uses cookies to distinguish you from other visitors of our  website in order to provide increased functionality and service. This  not only helps us to provide you with a better experience, but also to  help us improve our website and services.

Unless you  have adjusted your web browser settings (if and where possible) to  refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our  website or related online services. However in doing so, you may find  that certain functionality or services may be impaired or unavailable to  you.

The cookies we use only contain anonymous information to improve the services we offer, and do not contain personal information.

It  is also important to point out that not all cookies used by this  website are created by us. These cookies (referred to as third party  cookies) are covered below.

Analytics does this automatically, all  without personally identifying who you are.
