 What are Cookies? 

 Cookies and other similar tracking technologies are small text files or code placed on your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you use our website or view a message. Cookies allow a website or app to recognise a particular device. 

  Our Use of Cookies 

 We use cookies and other similar tracking technologies such as web beacons and single-pixel gifs on our website. These help us recognise you, your device and store information about your preferences or past actions. 

For example, we may monitor how many times you visit our website, which pages you go to, traffic data, location data and the originating domain name of your internet service provider. This information helps us to build a profile of our users. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually. 

You can set your browser to not accept cookies, and the websites below tell you how to remove cookies from your browser. However, please be aware that some of our website features may not function as a result. 

 What we use Cookies for 

 We use cookies and other similar tracking technologies to: 

  • Recognise you whenever you visit our website (this speeds up your access to our website as you do not have to log in each time); 
  • obtain information about your preferences and use of our website;  
  • carry out research and statistical analysis to help improve our content, services and to help us better understand our users’ requirements;  
  • provide targeted advertisements and service recommendations that are personalised to your interests; and 
  • make your online experience more efficient and enjoyable. 

  Types of Cookies 

 The cookies we place on your device fall into the following categories: 

  • Session cookies – these allow our website to link your actions during a particular browser session. These expire each time you close your browser and do not remain on your device afterwards. 
  • Persistent cookies – these are stored on your device in between browser sessions. These allow your preferences or actions across our website to be remembered. These will remain on your device until they expire, or you delete them from your cache. 
  • Strictly necessary cookies – these cookies are essential for you to be able to navigate our website and use its features. Without these cookies, the services you have asked for could not be provided. 
  • Performance cookies – these cookies collect information about how you use our website, e.g. which pages you visit most often.

  • Functionality cookies – these cookies allow our website to remember the choices you make (such as your user name, language, last action and search preferences) and provide enhanced, more personal features. The information collected by these cookies is anonymous and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites 
  • Targeting cookies – also known as advertising cookies, these cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement on our website, and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website, and this information is shared with other organisations, for example advertisers.
