We may use “cookies” (small files placed in the memory of your web browser or device) and other similar technologies for storing information to help provide you with a faster, safer, more convenient and personalised experience when you access our Platform. Most cookies are “session cookies,” meaning that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive at the end of a session.

When we work with our Vendors or other organisations, they are bound by our Terms and Conditions which specifically forbid them from contacting you for purposes other than that which is necessary to complete your transaction or fulfil your orders through our Platform. Without your explicit consent, they are not supposed to contact you directly for marketing or other non-transaction related purposes. Should you receive such unsolicited communication from any Vendor, please inform us immediately.

Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify us and change your password.
We will never ask for your password by phone or e-mail. Should you receive such an inquiry, please notify us immediately.
