Last Modified: 30 May , 2024

These cookies help us understand how you use our site, what content you find most interesting, and how we can enhance your overall experience. This Cookies Policy is here to explain what cookies are, how we use them, and how you can manage your cookie preferences. Please take a moment to read through this policy to ensure you're informed about the choices you have regarding cookies on our website. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.
What is a “cookie”?
Cookies are small text files that websites store on your device (such as a computer, tablet, or smartphone) when you visit them. These files contain information about your browsing activity on that particular website. Cookies serve various purposes, such as remembering your preferences, improving your user experience, and helping website owners analyse how visitors interact with their sites.

There are different types of cookies, each with its own function:

  1. Session Cookies : These are temporary cookies that are deleted when you close your browser. They help websites remember your actions during a single browsing session.
  2. Persistent Cookies : These cookies remain on your device for a specified period, even after you close your browser. They are used to remember your preferences and actions across multiple sessions.
  3. First-party Cookies : Set by the website you are visiting, these cookies are used for various purposes, such as remembering your preferences or keeping you logged in.
  4. Third-party Cookies : These cookies are set by domains other than the one you are visiting. They are often used for tracking and advertising purposes.
What is the life cycle of “Cookies” ?
The life cycle of cookies involves several stages from creation to expiration or deletion. When a user visits a website, the server sends small pieces of data known as cookies to the user's web browser. These cookies are then stored on the user's device. Throughout the user's interaction with the website, cookies play a crucial role in maintaining session information, remembering user preferences, and tracking certain activities.

The life cycle typically includes the following phases:

  1. Creation : Cookies are created by the web server and sent to the user's browser during the initial visit to a website. These cookies contain information such as session IDs or user preferences.
  2. Storage : The browser stores these cookies on the user's device, either in memory (session cookies) or on the hard drive (persistent cookies). Session cookies are temporary and expire when the browser is closed, while persistent cookies have a specified expiration date.
  3. Sending with Requests : As the user navigates through the website, the browser automatically includes relevant cookies in subsequent requests to the same domain. This helps the server recognize the user and maintain context, such as remembering items in a shopping cart.
  4. Expiration or Deletion: Cookies have an expiration date set by the server. Once this date is reached, the browser automatically deletes the cookies. Alternatively, users can manually delete cookies through browser settings.
  5. Renewal or Update : Some cookies may be renewed or updated with a new expiration date if the user continues to interact with the website. This process helps in maintaining a seamless and personalised user experience over time.
What cookies do we use?
Our website employs both session cookies and persistent cookies. These cookies serve various purposes:
  1. Essential Cookies : These are crucial for efficient page loading, feature delivery, and secure connections. They work by distributing the workload across multiple computers, authenticating users, ensuring secure connections, and preventing fraudulent or malicious activities on the website.
  2. Functionality Cookies : Designed to enhance your user experience, functionality cookies remember preferences like language settings. They also facilitate media playback and can autofill forms for your convenience.
  3. Analytical/Performance Cookies : Employed by us to track the number of website users, recognize returning visitors, and enhance overall user experience based on usage patterns. These cookies play a key role in gauging the performance of our services, guiding improvements, and introducing new features.
  4. Targeting and Advertising Cookies : These cookies capture your online behaviour, enabling us to tailor offers and services that align with your interests. They are instrumental in delivering personalised content and advertising to enhance your browsing experience.

What are third party cookies ?

Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by domains other than the one the user is currently visiting. In the context of web browsing, when you visit a website, it may contain resources such as images, advertisements, or scripts that are hosted on third-party domains. These third-party domains can also set cookies on your browser.

Here's how third-party cookies work:

First-Party vs. Third-Party:

  1. First-Party Cookies : These are set by the website you are directly interacting with. They are created by the domain you see in the address bar.
  2. Third-Party Cookies : These are set by domains other than the one you are currently visiting. They often belong to advertisers, analytics services, or social media platforms.
  3. Tracking and Profiling : Third-party cookies are commonly used for tracking and profiling users across different websites. Advertisers, for example, can use third-party cookies to gather information about your online behaviour and interests.
  4. Advertising and Personalization : Advertisers use third-party cookies to deliver targeted ads based on your browsing history and interests. This is known as behavioural advertising. Social media widgets on websites, which are hosted by third-party domains, may also use third-party cookies to track your interactions.
  5. Privacy Concerns : Privacy advocates have raised concerns about the potential misuse of third-party cookies for tracking users without their explicit consent. This has led to increased scrutiny and privacy regulations.
  6. User Control and Regulations : Many web browsers provide settings that allow users to block or limit third-party cookies. Additionally, privacy regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe, require websites to obtain user consent before storing or accessing certain types of cookies, including third-party cookies.
  7. Shift in Industry Practices: Due to growing privacy concerns and changing regulations, there has been a shift in the industry away from relying heavily on third-party cookies. Some web browsers and tech companies are exploring alternative technologies for online tracking that prioritise user privacy.
What third party cookies do we use?
The website leverages plug-ins from social networking platforms like Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to let you create an account, log in, and link material to your account. It also allows you to customise your advertising.

This website's articles may contain embedded content (pictures, videos, articles, etc.). When another website's content is embedded, it acts just like the user would have if they had visited the other website.

These websites have the potential to gather personal information about you, employ cookies, incorporate extra third-party monitoring, and keep track of how you engage with the embedded material. If you have an account and are signed in, they may also track how you interact with the embedded content.

The use of log files and web beacons :

A web beacon is a tool that emails and web sites use to indicate to users that they have viewed or interacted with material, such as a link or email. We automatically collect some data and keep it in log files. Most of this usage data is anonymous and includes things like the operating system, browser, clickstream data, internet service provider, and time stamp.

Personalise browser settings for cookies :

You can select longer expiration periods for the browsing history storage if you are the only one using the computer and you are not troubled by the usage of cookies. If you share a computer, you might want to think about configuring your browser to remove private browsing information every time you shut it.
