3. Key concepts
First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by https://teecom.com/).
Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third-party cookie. Please find below the list of third parties that may place cookies on the user’s device when visiting our Site, and the links to their privacy notices:

Session cookies these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session.

7. What type of cookies do we use and why?
We use "performance," “strictly necessary,” and “functional” cookies:
7.1 Strictly Necessary cookies:
These cookies are necessary for the Site to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Site will not work as they should.
7.2 Performance cookies:
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the Site and gather information on error messages. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our Site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
7.3 Functional cookies:
These cookies enable the Site to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
A cookie or similar technology will exist for different periods of time depending on the purpose of the cookie. For example, a session cookie which enables the Site to operate will only exist on your device whilst you browse our Site, but other cookies will remain on your device for longer such as some functionality cookies which need to stay on your device so that the Site can recognize you when you return.
