We believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. This policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They enable you to be remembered when using that computer or device to interact with websites and online services and can be used to manage a range of features and content as well as storing searches and presenting personalised content.

Why do we use cookies?

Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our site. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our site and also allows us to make improvements. 

They are necessary for the performance of a contract with you, or because using them is in our legitimate interests (where we have considered that these are not overridden by your rights), and, in some cases, where required by law, where you have consented to their use. If you have consented the use of cookies, then you can withdraw this consent at any time by disabling them as described below.

What type of cookies do we use?

We use cookies and/or other similar technologies such as tracking GIFs, either alone or in combination with each other to create a unique device ID.

We use the following types of cookies:

  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us for our legitimate interests of improving the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us, subject to your choices and preferences, to personalise our content, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Third party cookies

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control.

These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

Disabling cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can change your browser to prevent that and your help screen or manual will tell you how to do this.

The effect of disabling cookies depends on which cookies you disable but, in general, the website may not operate properly if all cookies are switched off. 

If you want to disable cookies on our site, you need to change your website browser settings to reject cookies.  How you can do this will depend on the browser you use.
