We use different types of cookies to collect and use data as part of our Services.

We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie lasts beyond the current session and will stay on your browser until they expire or you delete them. Session cookies last only as long as the session (usually the current visit to a site or a browser session). Third parties, such as our partners and service providers may also use cookies in connection with our Services. Please take a look at our Cookie Policy and our Privacy Statement if you’d like more information on how and why we and third parties use cookies.

These tables list some of the cookies that we and third parties place on our EU sites. The table also provides information about the cookies that third parties may use to help us to provide our Services.

Since the number and names of cookies may change, these tables may be updated from time to time to provide you with the latest information. The expiration dates for the cookies listed below generally apply on a rolling basis.
