We collect certain information by automated means when you visit By collecting this information, we learn how to best tailor the site to our visitors. We collect this information in a variety of ways, as explained below.

What are cookies?
In order for almost any modern website to function properly, it must collect certain basic information about its users. To do this, the site will create files known as “cookies”, which are small text files that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to identify the visitor’s unique browser, store information or certain settings in the browser. These cookies are designed to allow the website to recognize its users on subsequent visits or to authorize other specified websites to recognize those users for a specific purpose.
Cookies perform many different tasks, such as remembering your preferences on the sites you visit often, remembering your username and helping you navigate between pages more efficiently.

Why do we use cookies?
We use cookies to improve the site and provide services and functionality to its users, to track our own performance, and also to offer you content tailored to your requirements, hoping to improve your overall experience using the website.
We do our best to respect the privacy of the users of the site. We use cookies to monitor and improve our services. We sometimes include links on our site to goods and services offered by third parties, and we may be paid some commission if you subsequently decide to make a purchase. Cookies may be used to track your visits to third party sites to ensure we are paid the correct amounts. These commercial arrangements in no way affect our editorial content.
We believe that your experience on the site will be adversely affected if you opt out of the cookies we use.

What types of cookies are there and which ones do we use?
Below is a list of the cookies we use on this site.
A “cookie” will be placed on your device to allow us to remember your choices. If you do not reject cookies and continue to use the site, the following cookies will be placed on your device. You can indicate that you reject all cookies below. If you refuse all cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of the site.

There are two types of cookies:
1. Persistent – remain on the user’s device for a certain period of time specified in the “cookie”. They are activated each time the user visits the website that created that particular “cookie”.
2. Session cookies – These are temporary and allow website operators to associate a user’s actions during a browser session. A browser session begins when the user opens the browser window and ends when the user closes the browser window. After you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Cookies have a total of four different functions and can be categorized as follows: “strictly necessary” cookies, “performance” cookies, “functionality” cookies and “targeting” or “advertising” cookies.

Strictly necessary cookies are essential for navigating around the website and using its features. Without them, you won’t be able to use basic services like registration. These cookies do not collect information about you that can be used for marketing or to remember where you have been on the Internet. We use these cookies, for example, to set unique identifiers for each individual visitor so that the number of visitors to the site can be analyzed.

Performance cookies collect data for statistical purposes about how visitors use a website. They do not contain personal information such as names and email addresses and are used to improve your user experience on the website. We use them, for example, to collect data about visits to the website, including the number of visitors and visits, the length of time spent on the site, the pages clicked on or where visitors come from, and to compare with other sites using data collected from industry accepted research and studies. The information provided by performance cookies helps us understand how you use the website. For example, whether you have visited before, what you viewed or clicked on and how you found us. We can then use this data to improve our services.

Functionality cookies allow users to customize the way the website searches for them. They can remember usernames, location and can be used to provide more personal services such as breaking news. An example of how we use cookies for functionality: If you have been to the site before, we remember the information so that messages intended for new users are not shown to you.

Advertising and targeting cookies are used to display ads that are more relevant to you, but may also limit the number of ads shown and be used to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign by tracking user clicks. They may remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organizations, including other advertisers. They cannot determine who you are because the data collected is not linked to your profile. We use these cookies primarily for interest-based advertising (or online behavioral advertising). “Cookies” are installed on your device by third-party service providers who remember your web browser activity, group your interests to provide you with advertisements tailored to them.
Without these cookies, the online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.
