Some cookies are necessary for the Products to work as intended. For example, we use cookies for authentication purposes.

This cookie allows you to access other pages than the login page and therefore enables you to use the Product.

Analytical insights and marketing use

Service providers cookies collection

We entrust our service providers to collect cookies through their integrations in our Products. For example, our customer service provider can collect cookies to authenticate the message that you submit and therefore enables us to respond to your query.
