We and our service providers use cookies to collect information. A cookie is a string of characters that can be written to a file on the user's computer or device when the user visits a site, application, platform or service. When you visit a website or use a mobile application, a computer asks your computer or mobile device for permission to store this file on your computer or mobile device and access information from it. Information gathered through cookies may include the date and time of visits and how you are using the website.
Cookies can be 'first-party' or 'third-party' depending on the domain that sets them.

- First-party cookies. These cookies are set by us and information collected from these cookies is used by us in accordance with the terms of this Cookie Statement and our Privacy Policy.
- Third-party cookies. These cookies are set by another party's website (so not ours) and information is collected and used in accordance with that party's policies.

First-party and third-party cookies can be either 'session' or 'persistent' cookies depending on their duration, and our website uses both persistent and session cookies.

- Session Cookies. These cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your computer or device until you leave our website. They allow our website to link your actions during a browser session. We may use these for a variety of purposes such as remembering what you clicked on, or the previous page visited. A session starts when a user opens a browser window and ends when the browser window is closed, following which all session cookies expire and are deleted;

- Persistent Cookies. These cookies remain on your device for much longer or until you manually delete them (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or "lifetime" of the specific cookie, as well as your browser settings). Persistent cookies may be used for a variety of purposes including remembering users' preferences and choices when using a site or to target advertising.

We use the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:

Essential Cookies
These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through the services and to enable you to use some of their features. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.

Analytics and Performance Cookies
These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Services and how users interact with the Services. The information collected includes the number of visitors to the Services, the websites that referred visitors to the Services, the pages that they visited on the Services, what time of day they visited the Services, whether they have visited the Services before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate the Services more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on the Services.

Targeted and Sponsor Cookies
These cookies track your browsing habits or other information, such as location, to enable us to show sponsorship credits which are more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, and with our permission, we and our sponsors can place cookies to enable us or our sponsors to show sponsorship credits and other messages that we think will be relevant to your interests while you are using third-party services.

Social Networking Service Cookies
These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking service such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social networking service will record that you have done this.

Third-Party Cookies
Third-party service providers that measure and analyse the use of our Services and serve sponsorship credits and other messages onto the Services also use their own cookies. For example, third-party analytics service providers use cookies across multiple sites to collect visitor data (such as data related to age, gender and visitor interests). In addition, we work with third-party service providers that may serve sponsorship credits or other messages to you on other websites after you visit the Services. These third-party service providers use their own cookies to recognise you as visitor and to serve you sponsorship credits or other messages on other websites that they believe you will find most relevant. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the cookies used by these third-party service providers.
