Introduction

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that may be placed on your device when you visit websites. Websites use various types of cookies to fulfil many functions. Some cookies may be temporary and stay on your device for the duration of your browsing session only - so once you close your browser, the cookies will be deleted (session cookies). Some cookies may be more permanent (or semi-permanent) in order to remember your preferences in the future, unless you choose to delete them (persistent cookies). Cookies may be placed on the website by the operator of the website (first party cookies) or by other parties setting cookies through that website (third party cookies).

What cookies are used by us?

This website uses various types of cookies which we have categorised into one of four categories as follows. Each category shall be referred to as a different "Cookie Category".

Strictly necessary cookies

“Strictly Necessary” cookies allow you to move around this website and to use essential features like secure areas. We use these Strictly Necessary cookies to, for example, remember information you’ve entered on forms when you navigate to different pages in a single web browser session. Strictly Necessary cookies will NOT be used to gather information that is used to advertise products or services to you. These cookies are required for use of this website and so cannot be switched off by the user.

Performance cookies

“Performance" cookies (also sometimes referred to as "Analytics" cookies) collect information about how visitors use a website, for example, which pages visitors go to most often, and logs errors experienced on the site. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor (unless specified). All information these cookies collect is aggregated and anonymous and is only used to improve how the website works.

These cookies may be first party or third party cookies.

You can control whether or not these cookies are used through your browser or through our Cookie Preference Centre (see section on “How to manage cookies” below) but preventing them may mean we can’t offer you some services and will reduce the support we can offer you. It’s also possible that preventing these cookies may stop us remembering that you didn’t want a specific service.

Here is a list of the performance cookies which may be used on this website.

Functionality cookies

“Functionality” cookies allow the website to remember choices visitors make (such as their username, language or the region) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For example, a website may be able to provide visitors with local weather reports or traffic news by storing their regional location in a cookie. These cookies can also be used to remember changes visitors have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that visitors can customise. They may also be used to provide services visitors have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track browsing activity on other websites.

These cookies may be first party or third party cookies.

You can control whether or not these cookies are used through your browser or through our Cookie Preference Centre (see section on “How to manage cookies” below), however, without these cookies some or all of these services may not function optimally, and you might have to set preferences again on your next visit.

Here is a list of the functionality cookies which may be used on this website.

Targeting cookies

“Targeting” cookies (also sometimes referred to as "Advertising" cookies) are used to deliver adverts more relevant to site visitors and their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times a visitor will see an advertisement, as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. These cookies may be placed on our site by our advertising partners. They remember that a visitor has visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often, Targeting cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device.

These cookies may be first party or third party cookies.

You can control whether or not these cookies are used through your browser or through our Cookie Preference Centre (see section on “How to manage our cookies” below). If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Here is a list of the targeting cookies which may be used on this website.

How to manage our cookies

Using our Preference Centre

Our cookie Preference Centre gives website visitors options for blocking groups of cookies based on their Cookie Category. When you enter our website for the first time, our Strictly Necessary, Performance and Functionality cookies are already enabled, whilst our Targeting cookies are not. As mentioned above, our Strictly Necessary cookies cannot be disabled by the user as they are required for our website to operate. Although our Performance and Functionality cookies are not "strictly necessary" for our website to work, they will provide you with a better browsing experience.

You can change your cookie preferences at any time by clicking on the "Manage Your Cookie Settings" button at the top of this policy. This will lead you to the Preference Centre where you can then adjust the available sliders to "on" or "off" for each Cookie Category (except for the Strictly Necessary cookies) in order to enable or disable them. You may need to refresh your webpage for your new settings to take effect. If you choose to disable certain Performance or Functionality cookies, some features of the website may not work as intended and we may not remember your preferences, so you may have to manually adjust these preferences every time you visit our website.
