The first cate­go­ry inclu­des non-iden­ti­fy­ing and uniden­ti­fia­ble user data pro­vi­ded or collec­ted through use of the web­site (“Non-per­so­nal data“). We do not know the iden­ti­ty of the user from whom non-per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on was collec­ted. Non-per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on that may be collec­ted inclu­des aggre­ga­te usa­ge data and tech­ni­cal data trans­mit­ted by your device, inclu­ding cer­tain infor­ma­ti­on regar­ding soft­ware and hard­ware (eg, brow­ser used on the device and ope­ra­ting sys­tem used, lan­guage set­ting, access time, etc .). We use this data to impro­ve the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of our web­site. We may also collect data about your activi­ty on the web­site (eg, view­ed pages, sur­fing beha­vi­or, clicks, actions, etc.).

We and our part­ners use coo­kies to pro­vi­de appro­pria­te ser­vices. This also app­lies if you visit our web­site or access our ser­vices.
A ‚Äúcoo¬≠kie‚ÄĚ is a small pie¬≠ce of data that is asso¬≠cia¬≠ted with your device when visi¬≠t¬≠ing a page of this web¬≠site. Coo¬≠kies are use¬≠ful and can be used for dif¬≠fe¬≠rent pur¬≠po¬≠ses. The¬≠se inclu¬≠de easier navi¬≠ga¬≠ti¬≠on bet¬≠ween dif¬≠fe¬≠rent pages, auto¬≠ma¬≠tic activa¬≠ti¬≠on of cer¬≠tain func¬≠tions, saving your set¬≠tings and opti¬≠mi¬≠zed access to our ser¬≠vices. The use of coo¬≠kies also allows us to show you rele¬≠vant, tailo¬≠red adver¬≠ti¬≠se¬≠ments and to collect sta¬≠tis¬≠ti¬≠cal infor¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠on about your use of our ser¬≠vices.
This web­site uses the fol­lo­wing types of coo­kies:
a. ‚ÄúSes¬≠si¬≠on coo¬≠kies‚ÄĚthat ensu¬≠re nor¬≠mal sys¬≠tem usa¬≠ge. Ses¬≠si¬≠on coo¬≠kies are stored for a limi¬≠ted time during a ses¬≠si¬≠on and are dele¬≠ted from your device when you clo¬≠se your brow¬≠ser.
b. “Per­sis­tent coo­kies“, which are read only by the web page and are not dele­ted when clo­sing the brow­ser win­dow, but are stored on your com­pu­ter for a cer­tain peri­od of time. This type of coo­kie allows us to iden­ti­fy you on your next visit and, for examp­le, save your set­tings.
c. ‚ÄúThird-par¬≠ty Coo¬≠kies‚ÄĚthat are set by other online ser¬≠vices that have their own con¬≠tent on the page you are visi¬≠t¬≠ing. This can be for examp¬≠le, exter¬≠nal web ana¬≠ly¬≠tics com¬≠pa¬≠nies that collect and ana¬≠ly¬≠ze access to our web¬≠site.
Coo­kies do not con­tain per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fia­ble infor­ma­ti­on that iden­ti­fies you, but we may link the per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on we hold to the infor­ma­ti­on con­tai­ned in the coo­kies. You can remo­ve coo­kies through the device set­tings of your device. Fol­low the appro­pria­te inst­ruc­tions. Plea­se note that dis­ab­ling coo­kies may restrict cer­tain func­tions when using our web­site.
The tool we use is based on the tech­no­lo­gy of Snow­plow Ana­ly­tic.For examp­le, the infor­ma­ti­on we collect about the use of our web­site inclu­des how often users visit the site or which are­as are acces­sed. The tool we use does not collect per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fia­ble infor­ma­ti­on and is used by our web hos­ting pro­vi­der and ser­vice pro­vi­der sole­ly to impro­ve our offe­rings.
Using Script Libra­ries (Goog­le Web Fonts)
To make our con­tent appe­ar cor­rec­t­ly and gra­phi­cal­ly appe­aling in every brow­ser, we use script and font libra­ries such as Goog­le Web Fonts ( Goog­le Web fonts are trans­fer­red to your browser’s cache, so they only need to be loa­ded once. If your brow­ser does not sup­port or deny Goog­le Web Fonts, the con­tent will be dis­play­ed in a stan­dard font.
  • When cal¬≠ling script or font libra¬≠ries, we auto¬≠ma¬≠ti¬≠cal¬≠ly con¬≠nect to the owner of the libra¬≠ry. The¬≠re is theo¬≠re¬≠ti¬≠cal¬≠ly the pos¬≠si¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty for this ope¬≠ra¬≠tor to collect data. At pre¬≠sent it is not known whe¬≠ther and for what pur¬≠po¬≠se the ope¬≠ra¬≠tors of the respec¬≠tive libra¬≠ries actual¬≠ly collect data.
  • Here are the pri¬≠va¬≠cy poli¬≠ci¬≠es of the Goog¬≠le Libra¬≠ry ope¬≠ra¬≠tor:,
