1. What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your browser or device when you visit a certain web address. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web address on each subsequent visit, or to another web address that recognises that cookie. Cookies are widely used in order to make the Service work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the Service team.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your log-in and preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have accessed or used the Service before or whether you are a new visitor or user. They can also help to ensure that advertising you see online is more relevant to you and your interests. Cookies can help us safeguard the security of our data and services and detect the cheating, hacking and fraud against our products and services. Cookies can also store ticket information, which can be used by the server to verify if the log-in is made by yourself independently. The encrypted information in the ticket can also be used to prevent a variety of types of attacks, cross-site information theft, and access with disguised identity.

There are two broad categories of cookies:

· First party cookies, served directly by us to your device.

· Third party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf.

Cookies can remain on your browser or device for different periods of time. Some cookies are 'session cookies', meaning that they exist only while your browser or application is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser or application. Other cookies are 'permanent cookies', meaning that they survive after your browser or application is closed. They can be used by the Service to recognise your device when you visit and use the Service again.

2. How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to:

· track traffic flow and patterns of travel in connection with the Service;

· understand the total number of visitors to the Service on an ongoing basis and the types of devices;

· improve our products and services and provide reference data for the research and development of new products or functions; and

4. How to control or delete cookies

We use cookies to make sure you can use the Service easily and enjoy the Service. Some of these cookies are essential and we cannot provide our Service without them. When you use our Service for the first time, we will provide you with a notice which lets you know how we use cookies, why we use them and how you can change which cookies you accept. You have the right to choose whether or not to accept non-essential cookies and we have explained how you can exercise this right below. If you choose to refuse certain cookies or other essential locally stored data, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Service.

Most devices (in the case of mobile applications) and browsers (in the case of web apps and pages) allow you to change your cookie settings. These settings will typically be found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser. This lets you control your cookie settings so that you can:

· see what cookies or other locally stored data you’ve got and delete them on an individual basis;

· block third party cookies or similar technology;

· block cookies or similar technology from particular sites;

· block all cookies or similar technologies from being set; or

· delete all cookies or similar technologies when you close your browser.

For more information on how to manage popular browsers, please see below. Otherwise you should use the “Help” option in your browser for more details.

· Cookie settings in Chrome for web and Android

· Cookie settings in Safari web and iOS.

· Cookie settings in Internet Explorer

· Cookie settings in Firefox

Deleting cookies or similar technologies means that any preference settings you have made on a website will be lost. If you have set your preferences to opt out of cookies, this setting will be lost too, as that information is stored in a cookie. Blocking all cookies or similar technology means functionality on our Service will be lost, as described above. We do not recommend turning all cookies or similar technologies off when using our Service as we cannot guarantee that your experience on our Service will be as good as it could otherwise be.

How to opt out of third party cookie use

If you want to reduce your settings at any time (for example, if you accept all cookies, but later decide you do not want a certain type of cookie) you’ll need to use your browser settings to remove any third party cookies or similar technologies dropped on your previous visit. To opt out of Google Analytics’ use of cookies, a Chrome browser add-on is available.

5. Changes to this Cookies Policy

We will update this Cookie Policy to reflect changes in our practices and services. When we post changes to this Cookie Policy, we will revise the "Last Updated" date at the top of this Cookie Policy. If we make any material changes in the way we collect, use, and/or share information held in cookies, we will notify you by prominently posting notice of the changes when you log in to or use the Service. We recommend that you check this page from time to time to inform yourself of any changes in this Cookie Policy or any of our other policies.
