Control of cookies
We understand that some users of our web site will reside in jurisdictions that have privacy regulations that require the deployment of all non-essential cookies to be prevented by default, unless previously consented to and thereby controlled by the Site visitor. Thus, we provide this functionality to all our users by means of the cookie banner tool, which allows the user to choose their options for all non-essential cookie categories, as they feel are acceptable to them at the time. However, by default, our configuration is to only deploy essential cookies, and we will record the consent settings from every user for each category of cookie and these settings are changeable at any time by the user.
In addition to the above, most browsers can be set to block or allow first party cookies or third-party cookies by settings set by the user. You can at any time delete existing cookies present on your computer. Please be aware that such action could affect the availability and functionality of the Site.

Web beacons, pixel tags, and other tracking technologies cannot be deployed without your prior consent, as they are considered part of the non-essential marketing cookie category. However, you can limit their use by consenting to their deployment, or controlling the cookies that interact with them.
