Website users in Canada, the United Kingdom or the European Economic Area (EEA) should also read the country-specific information in the “How can you manage your cookie preferences?” section below.
1. What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that is sent to or accessed from your web browser or your device’s memory. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain from which the cookie originated, the lifetime of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other identifiers. Cookies may also contain information about your device, such as user settings, browsing history and activities conducted while using our services.
When we refer to “cookies” we include other tracking technologies with similar purposes, such as tags and identifiers. The other tracking technologies work similarly to cookies and place small data files on your devices or monitor your website actively to enable us to collect information about how you use our website. This allows our website to recognize your device from those of other users of the website.
- To improve your experience when navigating our website
- To remember some of your preferences, or save some of your credentials for your next visit
- To perform analytics and understand the pages and advertisements that you like, how you ended up on our website and from what type of devices
- To offer ad personalization to ensure that you are presented with relevant ads about our products. For instance, “t1” is a cookie that our domain installs for 3 months on your device so that we can collect information on your browsing behavior on different sites, and then tailor our advertising to you. This cookie is a first party cookie, this means that it’s our cookie – and it does not belong to a third party, like Facebook. However, some of our websites do allow third parties to install personalization cookies, which allow us to provide some relevant advertising to you on their website.
3. Cookie basics
Who places cookies: Cookies may either be placed directly by us (these are known as first-party cookies) or by our partners and service providers (these are known as third-party cookies).
How long do cookies last: Cookies may also be either be session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies only last until you close your browser, while persistent cookies continue working after you close your browser. The lifespan of a persistent cookie varies and will depend on the purpose for which the cookie is used.
What are your rights: With the exception of necessary cookies, we do not place any cookies on your device unless you provide consent, and you are permitted to withdraw your consent at any time. The section ‘How to manage cookies’ below provides more information.

They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests.

This information may also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of our online advertising campaigns.

6. How to manage cookies
All up to date versions of popular browsers give you a level of control over cookies. If you use your browser settings to block all cookies, which would include blocking our “necessary cookies,” you may not be able to access all or parts of our website.

7. For Canadian Residents:
For more information about interest-based advertising and to understand your options, including how you can opt-out of receiving behavioural ads from third-party advertising companies participating in the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada website at http://youradchoices.ca/choices.
Please note that even if you opt-out of interest-based advertising by a third party, these tracking technologies may still collect data for other purposes including analytics and you will still see ads from us, but the ads will not be targeted based on behavioural information about you and may therefore be less relevant to you and your interests.
To successfully opt-out, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser (see your browser’s instructions for information on cookies and how to enable them). Your opt-out only applies to the web browser you use so you must opt-out of each web browser on each computer you use. Once you opt-out, if you delete your browser’s saved cookies, you will need to opt-out again.
