Cookies are used in order to make the website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website. Such information may be used to provide a more personalized and responsive service. Cookies may be either first party cookies set directly by us to your device, or third-party cookies set by a third-party provider on our behalf. Whenever you use this system, information may be collected through the use of cookies and other similar technologies (e.g., web beacons, tags, scripts, local storage).
