What are Cookies?
When you visit our website, the following categories of cookies may be set in your browser:
Strictly Necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around a site and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided.
- Registered Visitor Cookie – A unique identifier given to each registered user, used to recognise you through their visit and when they return to the site.
These cookies allow websites and applications to remember choices you make (such as your username, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features.
We may use information collected from functional cookies to identify user behaviour and to serve content based on your profile. These cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. They don’t gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remembering where you’ve been on the Internet outside our site.
These cookies collect information so that we can analyse how our visitors use our site. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how our site works.
In order to keep our website services relevant, easy to use and up-to-date, we use web analytics services to help us understand how people use the site.
Cookies allow web analytics services to recognise your browser or device and, for example, identify whether you have visited our website before, what you have previously viewed or clicked on, and how you found us. The information is anonymous and only used for statistical purposes, and it helps us to analyse patterns of user activity and to develop a better user experience.
Web analytics data and cookies cannot be used to identify you – they do not contain personal information such as your name or email address.
- Google Analytics Cookie – This allows us to follow the actions of a user during their visit to our site (for more information, see Analytics cookies below).
Like most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data.
We do not link this automatically collected data to other information we collect about you.
These cookies record your visit to our site, the pages you have visited, and the links you have followed. We, and third parties, use this information to make our site, and the advertising on it, more relevant to you.
Advertisements displayed on our site may be provided through an advertising-management company. When you view a web page that contains advertising provided by an advertising-management company, that company may place a cookie on, or collect a cookie from, your device (if you have enabled cookies).
We use targeting cookies to display internet-based adverts when you are using social media sites, like Facebook. This allows us to create custom audiences and tailor adverts based on your browsing experience with us. We do not share any of your personal information with social media sites (like Facebook).
