The term "Cookie" means a text-only string of information that a Website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on User's computer's hard disk so that the Website can recognize the User upon revisits and remember certain information about the User. This can include which pages the User visited, choices made, any specific information the User has entered into forms and the time and date of the User's visit. Cookies include Session cookies and persistent cookies.
- Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire at the end of a browser session. Session cookies allow the Website to recognise the User as the User navigates between pages during a single browser session and allows the User to use the Website most efficiently.
- In contrast to session cookies, persistent cookies are stored on the User's equipment between browsing sessions until expiry or deletion. They therefore enable the Website to "recognise" the User upon return, remember the User's preferences, and tailor the Services for the User.
- Session Cookies help us to maintain security and to verify User's details whilst Users use the Website and navigate from page to page, which enables User to avoid having to re-enter his or her details each time entering a new page.
- Persistent Cookies help us recognize User as a unique user when User returns to the Website so that the User does not have to insert his or her details multiple times as moving between pages. It also remembers how User has customized its use of the Website, such as your preferred currency and time zone, and helps to collect and compile anonymous, aggregated information for statistical and evaluation purposes to help the Service Provider to understand how Users use the Website and help the Service Provider to improve the structure and usability of the Website.
- User can set his or her browser settings to be notified when receiving a cookie, so that the User will have an opportunity to either accept or reject Cookies in each instance. However, Users should note that refusing Cookies may have a negative impact on the functionality and usability of the Services or the Website. Therefore, as the Cookies allow you to access some of the Website's features it is recommended that Users leave Cookies enabled.
