The Site receives and stores certain types of non-personal information whenever you interact with it. Like many other websites, the Site uses "cookies" to save selected data about your internet session, such as IP address and referring page. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are stored by your Web browser and enable the provision of personalised site features. The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on's settings or visiting the website of its producer. However, because cookies may allow you to take advantage of some of the Site's essential features, it is recommended that you leave them turned on.

Like many other websites, the Site uses Google Analytics to monitor and analyse internet traffic. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use, which are stored via cookies on client computers. The information thereby generated is used to create reports that are of interest to webmasters. For example, data about the frequency of visits to the website, the particular pages viewed, and the platform used is collected. These data make it possible to improve a website's design and better tailor its contents to visitor customs and preferences. Google will store and use this information in line with the Google privacy policy. If you would like to opt out of Analytics cookies, you can do so by installing a respective plug-in to your browser.

The Site publishes Google Adsense advertisements, which are tailored by Google to reflect your interests. To determine the latter, Google will track your behaviour across the web using cookies. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser using Google's ads preference manager. You can also completely opt-out of receiving the Adsense partner network cookie. However, this opt-out mechanism uses a cookie, and if you clear the cookies from your browser, your opt-out will not be maintained. To ensure that an opt-out is maintained in respect of a particular browser, you might want to use a respective Google browser plug-in.

Third-parties may display interest-based advertising to you in applications or websites, based on your use of applications or websites over time and across non-affiliated apps.

Please note that opting out of interest-based advertising and cross-device targeting does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising. It does mean that the third-party from which you have opted out of receiving interest-based advertising or cross-device targeting by using the methods provided above will no longer deliver ads tailored to your Web preferences and usage patterns on a particular web browser or device.
