How do we use cookies?

We use cookies to provide the content, product or service you have asked for. Some of these cookies are essential to help your devices download or stream the information, or so you can move around websites and use their features. Without these cookies, content, or services you have asked for cannot be provided.

Here are some examples of essential cookies:

  • Positioning information on a smartphone screen, tablet or other screen, so you can see the website and use its functionality.
  • Keeping you logged in during your visit or enabling you to stream content; without cookies you might have to log in on every website you visit or repeatedly adjust your volume and viewing settings

We use cookies for analytics. We like to keep track of, for example, what information and links are popular and which ones don’t get used as much. This helps us keep our information relevant and up to date. It is also useful to be able to identify trends of how people find their way through our information as well as when and where an error message may originate from.

Analytics cookies are used to gather this information. The information collected is grouped with the information from everyone else’s cookies. We can then see the overall patterns of usage rather than any one person’s activity. These ‘analytics’ cookies are used to improve how an application, a website and its pages work.
