What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, enhance the user experience, and provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, TTBS) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (i.e., like advertising, interactive content, and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.
How can I control cookies?
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie rights by setting your preferences in the browser settings related to privacy, security, and cookie management. Rejecting Essential Cookies will result in degraded website performance and interfere with the functionality of your user experience, and are therefore strictly necessary to provide you with our services.
Also, regarding third-party cookies, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising.
