Please read our cookie policy carefully so you know what cookies are used.

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer or device hard drive. Cookies are commonly used to help or personalise the users browsing experience and provide information on how users interact with our site so we can make improvements.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone through the use of Google Analytics. We do not make any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website and do not collect personal information.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

These web analytics cookies, provided by Google Inc., are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.

What cookies do we use and why?

There are three types of cookies that we may use:

  • Required cookies: These are cookies, also known as ‘essential’ or ‘strictly necessary’ cookies, that are required for technical reasons in order for the online Properties and Services to operate. Without these cookies, the online Properties and Services would not be able to function. We want you to understand these required cookies, and why we use them, but we don’t need to get your consent to use them on our online Properties and Services as we use these cookies only to provide you with services or information that you have requested.
  • Functional cookies: These cookies may be used to enhance the performance and functionality of our online Properties and Services; to manage your preferences; to analyse and personalize your use of, or to generally help us better understand how, our online Properties and Services are being used. We think that these cookies will improve your experience when using the online Properties and Services but are non-essential to their use. As such, you may disable these cookies as set forth below, however please be aware that, without these cookies, certain functionality (like videos) may become unavailable.
  • Advertising/ targeting cookies: These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests. You may disable the use of these cookies as set forth below.
 

What similar technologies do we use?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track users of our online Properties and Services. We may use other similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs“) to track users of our online Properties and Services. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has interacted with our online Properties and Services, such as opening an e-mail that we have sent them. The use of web beacons (or similar technologies) allow us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users within our online Properties and Services, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our online Properties from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve our online Properties and Services, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

We and our service providers and third parties we collaborate with, including ad networks, may use cross-device/cross-context tracking. For example, you might use multiple browsers on a single device, or use various devices (such as desktops, smartphones, and tablets), which can result in your having multiple accounts or profiles across these various contexts and devices. Cross-device/cross-context technology may be used to connect these various accounts or profiles and the corresponding data from the different contexts and devices.
