How Cookies Are Categorised

We use different cookies for different functions and purposes. The three main cookie purposes are:

  • Technical necessity
  • Storage duration
  • Cookie provider

Technical Necessity

Technically necessary cookies mean that they enhance the functionality of the website. These types of cookies are automatically added to your device when you access the website. However, this will happen if you have set the device to reject cookies.

None “necessary” cookies are not a must-have, but they are placed on your device for convenience purposes, or to improve on performance.

Additionally, the not so strict cookies found on our website are useful in getting information on the frequency of use on certain parts of our website. This helps us to adapt to personal needs so that we can be able to offer you a more targeted service.

Storage Duration

Under this type, we have a number of cookies and they include:

Session cookies-With them, we only store information for the duration session that you have visited the website.

As soon as you leave the site, these cookies will be invalid or will become erased. The main aim of session cookies is to keep certain information during your web visit session.

Permanent cookies: these are the most common type of cookies. With them, your information is kept for a much longer duration, and it assists in recognizing you at a later time when you visit the website.  

This in return helps you to easily, and quickly navigate the website as some details are already stored for you. For example, you may not need to search the bar to locate your country, since this information is already stored by the cookies.

However, although they are called permanent cookies, they will be automatically deleted after a certain duration of time.

Flow cookies: These types of cookies are purely for communication, and they are used within our company’s internal servers. Flow cookies are placed on your device each time you visit our website, and they will be automatically deleted when you end your visit.

Although Flow cookies are assigned a unique identification number, we do not use this number to draw any conclusions in regard to the website visitor.

Cookie Providers

We also have different cookies providers that include the following:

Provider cookies: These types of website cookies are placed by either us, or an operator who has the authority from us.

Third-party cookies: For this type, the cookies are used /stored by other firms and/or websites. A good example of such is Web analytics tools.

In other instances, External providers may also use cookies for different reasons, like to display marketing/advertising material, or to integrate content coming from social networks (social plugin).

We have provided additional information on Web analytics tools in this cookie policy, and you can check it to get a clearer picture.

How We Use Cookies to Analyse Web Statistics

We engage the services of Google Analytics, which is a Web-analytics function that is owned by Google Inc. With the help of cookies, Google Analytics is able to identify how frequently certain parts of our website are used, which then helps to identify particular preferences.

All the information picked by this tool (this includes even a truncated IP address) is moved to the Google server located in the United States and kept there.

At this point, Google will have enough information that they can use to analyse how you use the website, and then compile a report on the usage of the website.

Where required by law, Google has the ability to transmit this type of information to third parties.

If you want to deactivate Google Analytics, you can do so by using a browser add-on. This will stop the website analysis from happening.

Follow this link to download the add-on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=. The “add-on” will then store the “opt-out” information within your device, and this will match up with your request for deactivation of the Google Analytics tool.

With this kind of “opt-out”, deactivation of Google Analytics happens only on the device and browser that you use to opt-out.  Some of the common cookies that you will find on our website include:
