Some cookies are essential for our Platform to operate smoothly while others are used to improve Platform’s functionality or analyze aggregated usage statistics to improve website performance (as in the case of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc.).

Users may choose to reject all or some cookies at any time by changing the setting of your web browser on your device. However, please be aware that you will not be able to use some of the functions of our Platform if you choose to delete or restrict cookies.
