Cookies are used on the Website to facilitate users in accessing their accounts and keep your session (i.e. to prevent the system to ask for a login at every page).

We furthermore use cookies to understand where you come from, for example to see if you clicked on one of our paid Google or Facebook Ads, or if you come from one of our Affiliate websites, to which we might need to pay commissions to.

Our website also uses additional third party services, such as Google Analytics, AddThis, and more, that allow us to provide enhanced functionality and/or gather stats about the website usage.

For a full explanation of how cookies are used please refer to our Privacy Statement.
