Some cookies are required to enjoy and use the full functionality of this website.
Cookies that we use are;
Session cookies are temporary cookies that memorise your online activities. Since websites have no sense of memory, without these cookies, your site browsing history would always be blank. In fact, with every click you would make, the website would treat you as a completely new visitor.
A good example of how session cookies are helpful is online shopping. When you’re shopping online, you can checkout at any time. That’s because session cookies track your movement. Without these cookies, whenever you would go to checkout, your cart would be empty.
Ultimately, session cookies help you manoeuvre through the internet by remembering your actions, and they expire as soon as you close out of a web page.
We ensure the security of any personal information we hold by using secure data storage technologies and precise procedures in how we store, access and manage that information. Our methods meet the GDPR compliance requirement.
We have provided some further explanations about user privacy and the way we use this website to help promote a transparent and honest user privacy methodology.
