Other cookies are used to remember you when you return to the Site and will last for longer.

We use cookies to:

  • remember that you have visited us before; this means we can identify the number of unique visitors we receive. This allows us to make sure we have enough capacity for the number of users that we get;
  • customize elements of the promotional layout and/or content of the pages of the Site;
