1. What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files or pieces of information that are stored on your computer or mobile device (such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit our site. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long the cookie will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.
3. What types of cookies do we use?
Two types of cookies may be used on the Sites, which are called “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you leave the Site. A persistent cookie remains on your device for much longer or until you manually delete it (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie).
Third Party Cookies
We also use a number of suppliers that may also set cookies on your device on our behalf when you visit our site to allow them to deliver the services they are providing. If you would like more information about these cookies, as well as information about how to opt-out of receiving such cookies, please see their privacy policies.
Essential cookies are necessary for the site to work and enable you to move around it and to use its services and features. Without these absolutely necessary cookies, the site will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide the site or certain services or features you request.
Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the site, and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the site, help us record any difficulties you have with the site, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the site, rather than the usage of a single person.
Although most internet browsers are initially set up to automatically accept cookies, most internet browsers allow you to change the settings to block cookies or to alert you when cookies are being sent to your device.
In addition to the options provided above, you may refuse, accept or remove cookies from the site at any time by activating or accessing the setting on your browser. Information about the procedure to follow in order to enable, disable or remove cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider’s website via your help screen.
Please be aware that if cookies are disabled or removed, not all features of the Site may operate as intended, for example you may not be able to visit certain areas of our Site or you may not receive personalized information when you visit the Site.
If you use different devices to view and access the Sites (e.g. your computer, smartphone, tablet etc.) you will need to ensure that each browser on each device is adjusted to suit your cookie preferences.
