Cookies help to recall your preferences from a previous visit when you return, to navigate from page to page, to play videos, to provide secure connections, and to analyze how a website is being used. Cookies allow the website or a third-party to recognize you and make your next visit easier and the website more useful to you.
You have the right to block and remove cookies but doing so may interfere with your browsing experience or mean that some features and services cannot be provided to you.
Cookies can be grouped into the following types:
Some cookies are essential for the operation of a website. If you opt to disable these cookies, you may not be able to access all of the content of the website. For example, video playback typically will not work without cookies.
Performance cookies are used to analyse how people use a website and to monitor its performance. Analysing use allows to improve the website by identifying popular content and monitoring helps to spot and fix problems quickly.
Functionality cookies are used to to remember your preferences, such as not querying cookie consent on every page load and visit.
Marketing cookies are used to help in providing users with adverts that are relevant to them by collecting information about their browsing habits and usage.

Social media cookies allow users to interact more easily with social media, such as Facebook and Instagram.
When you use and access the Service, we and third-parties we have partnered with may place a number of cookie files on your device.
We use both first party cookies (our own cookies) and third party cookies, which are cookies provided by other people’s websites. For example, a third party content provider (such as Youtube or Vimeo) might provide a cookie when you access content hosted on their site (play a video). We do not have access to those third party cookies and their providers will have their own cookie and privacy policies, which we encourage you to read.
We use our own cookies for the following purposes:
In addition to our own cookies, we also use third-party services that write cookies for the following purposes:
Google Analytics is a popular cookie-based web analysis service provided by Google Inc, which we use to monitor how visitors use the Service, to compile usage reports and to help us improve the Service.
If you prefer to not have data reported by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On, by following the instructions here.
You may also opt out of Google's use of tracking technologies by visiting the Google advertising opt-out page here.
You may also select "Minimal" option when you first use the Service and it queries your consent on using cookies; then the Service will not enable Google Analytics.
Youtube is a popular video sharing service provided by Google Inc, which we use to play videos from our own or from our partner's Youtube account.
If you prefer to not have cookies from Youtube, do not play the videos that we link from Youtube. We use Youtube's privacy-enabled URL, which means that Youtube will not write cookies until you press the play button.
You may also select "Minimal" option when you first use the Service and it queries your consent on using cookies; then the Service will not enable Youtube video player at all and you cannot play Youtube videos on the Service.
Vimeo is a popular video sharing service provided by IAC, which we use to play videos from our own or from our partner's Vimeo account.
If you prefer to not have cookies from Vimeo, do not play the videos that we link from Vimeo. We use Vimeo's "do not track" parameter, which means that Vimeo will not write tracking cookies. Vimeo will still write functional cookies.
You may also select "Minimal" option when you first use the Service and it queries your consent on using cookies; then the Service will not enable Vimeo video player at all and you cannot play Vimeo videos on the Service.
When you first visit the Service, you are given an opportunity to select between minimal or all cookies. Cookies will be written after you give consent by selecting one of the offered cookie options.
Please note, however, that if you delete cookies or refuse to accept them, you might not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.
