Cookies

The Website uses cookies to store visitors’ preferences, record user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, ensure that visitors are not repeatedly sent the same banner ads, customise Website content based on visitors’ browser type or other information that the visitor sends. Cookies are also often used to remember if you are already registered to the Website and to remember your user details for future correspondence or form of login. 

Cookies may also be used by third-party services, such as Google Analytics, as described herein. Since this website also promotes products and services, it is important that we use cookies to understand how a user is interacting with the Website, and how many visitors actually make a purchase, since this is what a cookie can track.
