What is a cookie?
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.
When you use our website, you may also be sent third party cookies. Our service providers may send you cookies. They may use the information they obtain from your use of their cookies:
[a) to track your browser across multiple websites;
(b) to build a profile of your web surfing; and
(c) to target advertisements which may be of particular interest to you.
Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
On 27th May 2011, the EC introduced a directive called Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulation 2011 which requires the owners of websites to get specific approval from the visitor if cookies are deployed.
At the moment, we’re not in a position to meet this requirement but we’re working on a plan that will allow us to comply in the near future.
