What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that websites place on the computers and mobile devices of people who visit the websites. These files are then read by the website each time you return to the site. These text files allow a website to remember your device and how you interacted with the website, which is useful for a number of different purposes.
For example, cookies can be used to remember username and password information so that you don’t have to re-enter all of your login information every time you visit a site you frequently log in to. Other functions of cookies are to provide custom advertising to users based on searches and personal interests, as well as site performance cookies that enhance website use by remembering things such as custom video streaming or volume settings you have selected while using the website in the past.
What is a Cookies Policy?
A Cookies Policy is the policy where users can find detailed information about the types of cookies a website uses, how these cookies are used, and how users can control cookies placement through limiting or forbidding a website to place cookies on his/her electronic device.
We appreciate some users may like more individual control over their visit to our website and can adjust their settings accordingly. You can read all about this in the section below “How to control and delete cookies”. If you do not agree to such use, please refrain from using the website.

How to Control and Delete Cookies?
Here are some tips you can use to ensure worry-free cookie-based browsing:
Customise your browsers cookie settings to reflect your comfort level with cookie security. If you are very comfortable with cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you may want to set long expiration time frames for storing your personal access information and browsing history.
If you share access on your computer, you may want to set your browser to clear private browsing data every time you close your browser. While not as secure as rejecting cookies outright, this option lets you access cookie-based websites while deleting any sensitive information after your browsing session.
How do I remove them? Although cookies are very useful to navigate the Internet, you definitely need to know the basics of removing your cookie files so you can protect your privacy online. There are two kinds of cookies-regular text browser cookies and flash cookies. To ensure maximum web browsing privacy, you have to delete both kinds of cookies. Too many Internet users delete cookies which are text-based and leave flash cookies intact. This doesn't protect your privacy. You have to know how to delete flash cookies, too.
There is no one standardised way to remove cookies since different browsers clear cookies using different procedures. Please go to your browser help file to learn about removing cookies.
