In this Cookie Policy, reference to “Cookies” includes cookies and all other files that collect information in a similar manner.

Note to our Users in the EU 🇪🇺

In order to place Cookies (including tags and other technologies) on your browser or device, we may need to obtain your consent. We will do so by providing a clear notice in the form of a cookie banner on the Site that informs you what Cookies are used for, as well as providing you with useful information about the technologies we use and a link to this Cookie Policy. You will need to indicate your acceptance of our use of Cookies. On a mobile device this might be by swiping a banner, pressing a button, or using facial recognition.

You are able to opt-out of the use of Cookies. For more information, see the Section 7 below on blocking Cookies.

Using information collected from Cookies: where we want to use the information that Cookies and similar technologies collect, we either need your consent or we will do so based on the legitimate interest ground. In certain cases we rely on our legitimate interests to use the data collected by Cookies. To do this we conduct an assessment to make sure the purposes for which we use your data are fair and that your privacy rights are considered.

We only rely on legitimate interests where your rights do not override our interests in using the data. For more information about your rights in relation to legitimate interests, please refer to our Privacy Policy.

3. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which are stored on, and accessed from, your computer or mobile device when you visit or use the Site.

We use cookies, web beacons, pixels, clear gifs and other similar tools (collectively, “Cookies“) on our Site to recognize your device from those of other Users of the Site, to improve the Site’ performance, to deliver a better and more personalized service according to the User’s individual interests and the device or browser used, to track Users’ use of the Site, to gather information about the Users’ approximate geographic location (e.g. city) to provide localized content, to prevent fraud and/or abuse, to estimate our audience size and usage pattern and perform other analytics, to develop our Services and to administer targeted advertising and our advertising campaigns to Users across different websites and devices.

4. How long will Cookies stay on my device?

Most of the Cookies we use are erased from your device immediately after your browser session terminates (“Session Cookies”). Other Cookies remain saved on your device and enable us to recognize your device in the event of a later visit to our Site (“Persistent Cookies”).

Persistent Cookies allow us to make our Site more user-friendly, effective and safe and to record your acceptance of our cookie policy detailed herein. Please note that the data collected through Cookies will not be kept for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purposes mentioned above.

5. First and third party Cookies

First-party Cookies are Cookies that belong to us and that we place on your device. Third-party Cookies are Cookies that another party, which provides us a service, places on your device through your use of our Site.

For example, to administer our Site and for research purposes, we have contracted third-party service providers to track and analyze statistical usage and volume information from our Users.

Third-party Cookies may also be placed on your device by our business partners so that they can use them to advertise products and services to you elsewhere on the Internet.

6. Do we track whether users open our emails?

Our emails may contain a single “web beacon pixel” which enables us to verify whether our emails (and any links or advertisements within the email) are opened. We may use this information to determine whether our emails are of interest to Users, to approach Users who do not open our emails and verify whether they wish to continue receiving them and to inform our advertisers in aggregate of the audience size for their advertisements.

Please note that such “web beacon pixel” will be deleted once you delete the email from your email account.

If you do not wish the “web beacon pixel” to be downloaded to your device at all, please set your email account settings to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.
