A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting.

Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache.
