How does SABRIC use Cookies?

SABRIC’s website only uses Analytics Cookies, which are also strictly necessary cookies. Analytics cookies help website owners understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously. They monitor how users reached the site, and how they interact with and move around once on the Site. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don't, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page.

SABRIC does not use Advertising Cookies. Advertising Cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you and your interests. They also perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.
