What are cookies and similar technologies?

Cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them, whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies are generated by the server of the visited website when the browser of your device loads it. The website sends information to the browser and creates a text file. Each time the user returns to the same website, the browser extracts this text file and sends it to the website’s server. The information that the cookie contains is specified by the server and may be used by the latter when the website is visited again by the user.

We use cookies to achieve different tasks such as like letting you navigate between pages efficiently and easily, remembering your preferences and generally improving your experience when browsing. We also use them to ensure that any ads you see on our websites or mobile apps and ads of other third-parties are more focused to you and your interests.

We also use similar technologies such as ‘pixel tags’ and ‘JavaScript’ to undertake these tasks. Pixel tags and JavaScript are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has our websites. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our websites or mobile apps to another, to provide or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our our websites or mobile apps from via online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance.

If you visit our websites, we will deploy cookies and similar technologies to design an online service more suitable for your device, as well as to prevent and detect fraud. When you visit our website from any device we collect information about your use of the particular website, such as information about the device or browser you use to access the site (including device type, operating system, screen resolution, etc.), the way you interact with this site, and the IP address your device connects from. In many cases, the above said technologies are relying on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning, which means that you may not be able to exercise some activities within our secure online services unless these cookies or similar technologies are installed. Additionally there might be a chance that we may not be able to process certain transactions if you are physically located in certain countries.

Cookies set by us are referred to as “first party cookies”. Cookies deployed by parties other than us are called “third-party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be displayed on or through the website/app. The parties that set these third-party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

We may not influence or control over third-party cookies. If you would like to find out more about the types of cookies which may be downloaded as a result, please visit the website of the third-party provider to do so.
