Certain cookies may also collect personal data about you from your Device.
Our Website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our Website. This helps us to provide you with a better experience when you visit our Website and assists us in making improvements. It enables the Website to remember your actions and preferences (such as language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them when you come back to the Website or browse from one page to another.
