This data may include IP- addresses, browser version, number of visits and similar such data relating to your navigation of the Internet and our site. A ‘cookie’ is a small text file that is placed on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies and pixels help us to improve our sites and to deliver a better and more personalised service, for instance by storing information about your preferences and allowing us to recognise you when you return to our site. This information does not identify individual users.
