General Notices For Visitors To This Web Site

Thank you for visiting. This page outlines legal information, regarding cookies, intellectual property, privacy policy, etc.


To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies? A cookie is small text file used by most websites which gets permission (dependent on your web browser settings) to be placed on your internet access device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (e.g. language, font size or display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies? Cookies come in two types. Cookies are either: (a) Session cookies: these are only stored on your computer during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser - they usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page but they do not collect any personal data from your computer; or (b) Persistent cookies: these are stored as files on your computer and remain there when you close your web browser. The cookie can be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again. Some pages on our site use "performance cookies" for purposes of web analytics. Such cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect personal information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. By using our site, visitors consent that the site can place these types of cookies on their device.

Also, some videos embedded in our pages use a cookie to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited.

How to control cookies: Enabling cookies is not strictly necessary for a website to work but it will usually provide visitors with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features of this site may not work as intended.You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish - for details, see You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
