02. How are Cookies used?
02.1 Necessary Cookies
Some cookies are necessary to allow you to browse our website, use its features, and access secure areas. The use of these cookies is essential for the website to work. For example, we use user-input cookies for the duration of a session to keep track of a user’s input when filling in forms that span several pages.
02.2 Functional Cookies
Some functional cookies remember choices you’ve made or information you’ve provided, such as your username, language, or the region you are in. This allows sites to tailor user website experience specifically to user preferences. For example, authentication cookies are functional cookies that are used for the duration of a session (or persistent, if you agree to the “remember me” function) to allow users to authenticate themselves on subsequent visits or to gain access to authorised content across pages.
