Use of cookies

Like almost all websites, we use cookies in order to provide you with a more personalised web service. It would be impossible for us to implement all the features of the site without using cookies.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a string of characters containing information that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive via your web browser so that the site can recognise you.

Cookies cannot be used to identify you personally or by name.

Typically, they contain the name of the domain from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

We also use other technologies such as web beacons, web beacons, tags or similar technologies for the same purpose.

How do we use cookies?

Cookies can be used in a number of different ways as outlined below:

  • These cookies are used by our site for some of its functionality. They may be used to provide you with an optimal browsing experience while you are on the site.
  • These cookies collect anonymous data about how people use the site. This data is merged with that of other users to improve the operation of the site. For example, we use Google Analytics to help us understand how users arrive at our site and to highlight areas where we can improve. The data stored by these cookies never provides any personal information that would reveal your identity.
  • These cookies collect information about the way you browse in order to provide you with relevant advertising content that may be of interest to you. They remember which websites you have visited and share this information with third parties, such as advertisers. For example, we use Google, a third party partner, to provide you with personalised ads when you visit other sites.

How do I manage my cookies?

You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies being stored on your computer or mobile device without your explicit consent. The help section of your browser should give you details of how you can manage cookies. Please note that this setting will not prevent advertising content from being displayed. The content you are offered will simply be less relevant.

Changes to Cookie Usage

We may make changes to the Use of Cookies at any time. If we make significant changes to the Cookie Usage, we will inform our users the next time they visit the site.

It is important that you read the Cookie Usage carefully. If you do not wish to agree to the change in Cookie Usage, we will no longer be able to provide our service to you and you will not be able to access our site.
