Cookie Policy

This page forms part of our Privacy Policy and describes the use of cookies on our website.

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). This policy explains how we do that.

Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target their advertising or marketing messages based for example, on your location and/or browsing habits.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small data files (normally numbers and letters) which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

More detailed information is available in Wikipedia.

HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

Cookies enable us to identify your device, or you when you have logged in. We use cookies that are strictly necessary to enable you to move around the site or to provide certain basic features. We use cookies to enhance the functionality of the website by storing your preferences, for example. We also use cookies to help us to improve the performance of our website to provide you with a better user experience.

For the avoidance of doubt we do not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you.

HOW TO CONTROL COOKIES?

If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.

If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how.

WHAT COOKIES ARE USED BY THIS SITE?

Types of cookie that may be used during your visit to our website are:

  1. Session cookies – session cookies enable our website to keep track of your movement from page to page so you don’t get asked for the same information you’ve already given to the site. They are automatically deleted when you close your web browser.
  2. Session and permanent cookies – these help our website remember your preferences and settings when you visit again in the future. They therefore speed up and enhance your experience of services or functions offered. For these cookies to work, they are stored on your device and are not deleted when the browser is closed.
  3. Third party cookies – these are placed by another company (domain) and are used to help us track visitor behaviour and revenue in order for us to measure the performance of our website.

OTHER WEBSITES

The website may contain links to other sites which are outside our control and are not covered by this policy. The operators of these sites may collect information from you that will be used by them in accordance with their policy, which may differ from ours.

CHANGES TO OUR POLICY

This cookie policy replaces all previous versions and is correct as of May 2017. We reserve the right to change and/or update the policy at any time.
