More about our Cookies

Website Functional Cookies

Our own cookies

We use cookies to make our website work, including:

  • Determine if you are logged in or not
  • Remembering your search settings

There is no way to prevent these cookies other than not using our site.

Social Website Cookies

These are used to easily share or Like content on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+.

These cookies are placed by the relevant Social Media sites. The consequences for the privacy of these cookies depend on the Social Media Network and depend on the privacy settings that you have set on that network.

Anonymous Visitors Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to generate visitor statistics such as the number of people who visited the site, what technology they use (eg Mac or Windows that helps us identify issues when the site is not working on certain technologies), how long they’re on the site which pages are being viewed etc. This helps us to continually improve the website. These so-called analytical programs tell us, on an anonymous basis, how the site is found (e.g., through a search engine) and whether they have been here before.

We use: Google Analytics

Advertising Cookies

Cookies are used everywhere in online ads. None of us, advertisers, or affiliates of the advertisers can retrieve personally identifiable information from these cookies. We only work with ad partners who have accepted the privacy by default.

You can read more about online advertising at  You can opt out of almost all ad cookies at Although we ask you to not do that because the ads eventually help us to offer the site for free. It is also important to realise that if you do not accept cookies, this does not mean that you do not see ads, it simply means they are no longer being customised.

We use:

Banner Ads

We pay our website by displaying ads if you browse our site. These ads are usually managed by a partner that specialises in displaying ads on multiple websites. All of these partners place cookies that collect anonymous data about the websites you visit to show you personal ads, ensuring that the same ads are not shown too often and let their advertisers know which ads work.

We use:

Turn off Cookies

Typically, you can turn off cookies by adjusting browser settings that prevent cookies from being accepted (learn how to disable cookies). Turning off the cookies probably also eliminates many functionality of the websites because cookies form part of many modern websites.

You may also be concerned about cookies related to “spyware”. Instead of disabling cookies in your browser, there is anti-spyware software that works better. This software can automatically delete cookies that they consider to be offensive. There are several anti-spyware programs on the Internet.
