4.     When Do Cookies Expire?

Some cookies operate from the time you visit the Site to the end of that particular web-browsing session. These cookies expire and are afterwards automatically deleted when you close your Internet browser window and are therefore called “session” cookies.  We use session cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to provide application security, manage individual sessions on the Site, to determine if the user is located in a country with content restrictions and to determine language preferences during your time on the Site.

Some cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions — they do not expire when you close your browser. These cookies are called “persistent”. The length of time a persistent cookie stays on your device may vary. We use persistent cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to track acceptance of the Terms and Conditions of Use and last country site visited.

5.     Who Sets the Cookies?

Cookies may be placed on your device by us as the Site operator. These cookies are called “first party” cookies. Certain cookies may be placed on your device by a third party, such as social media platforms and Site content providers. These cookies are called “third party” cookies. For example, a third party such as Facebook may place a cookie to track last Facebook pages visited and user registration effectiveness.
