A cookie is a small piece of data typically consisting of letters and numbers. When you visit a website, that website may send a cookie to your browser. Subsequently, the browser may store the cookie on your computer or mobile device for some time (cookie expiration date depends on its type).

There are several types of cookies, namely, (i) persistent cookies, which remain valid until deleted by you, (ii) cookies that remain valid until their expiration date, and (iii) session cookies that are stored on a web browser and remain valid until the moment the browser is closed. Cookies may also be (i) first-party cookies (set by the original website itself) and (ii) third-party cookies (placed by third-party websites).

To analyze your use of the Website, we use Google Analytics, the business analytics service provided by Google LLC located in the United States (“Google”). Google generates statistical information by means of cookies and creates reports about your use of the Website. The cookies served by Google Analytics are anonymous first-party cookies (please refer to section 3 for more information) that do not allow us to identify you in any manner. The information generated by cookies will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. To ensure your privacy, your IP address will be anonymized and Google will not combine your IP address with other information Google holds about you. Thus, Google will not be able to identify you. In certain cases (e.g. when required by law or when third parties conduct services on behalf of Google), Google may transfer the information to third parties.
