Cookies 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. The primary information usually collected through cookies is statistical and technical information about equipment, and visitor actions on our website, such as:

  • Traffic data
  • Location and IP address
  • Communication data
  • Operating System
  • Browser

With the exception of IP addresses, none of the information collected through these methods is personal data.

IP address

When you visit our website we record your computer's internet protocol (IP) address to help us diagnose any problems with our computer network. Any information logged isn't given to any third party companies, and is kept solely for the reasons stated above. It's not linked to personally identifiable information so all visitors to our site remain anonymous.
