What are cookies and how do we use them?

Like most websites you visit, our website (“site”) uses cookies and other similar technologies to distinguish you from other users of our site and to store and manage user preferences, deliver targeted advertising, enable content, and gather analytic and user data, for example. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our site and also allows us to improve our site. 

Cookies 

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website or embedded in a web page. Cookies may then be sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and to remember your actions and preferences (such as login details, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time. 

Where possible, security measures are set in place to prevent unauthorised access to our cookies and similar technologies. A unique identifier ensures that only we and/or our authorised service providers have access to cookie data.

We rely on your consent to use certain types of cookies (except “strictly necessary cookies”, as described below).  You can refuse cookies at any time by changing the cookie settings in your browser.  

You can find more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your device and how to manage and delete them, at www.aboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.

Web beacons

Web beacons (also known as internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs) are typically transparent graphic images placed on a site. Web beacons are used in combination with cookies to measure the actions of visitors on websites. We may use beacons to obtain information such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, and the type of browser used to view the page.

IP addresses and URLs

An IP address is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the internet. When you visit our sites, we may view that IP address of the device that you use to connect to the internet using a web beacon. We use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and understand from what geographic regions our site visitors come. We may use this information to change the way we present our sites to you to enhance your visit.

A URL (uniform resource locator) is a unique identifier or address for each resource on the internet, in effect it is the address for the web page that you are visiting. We will use this information to see which sites and pages are visited and the way that you navigate through our site.

How long do cookies last? 

We use cookies and similar technologies that only remain on your device for as long as you keep your browser active (session) and cookies and similar technologies that remain on your device for a longer period (persistent). You are free to block, delete, or disable these technologies if your device allows this. You can manage your cookies and your cookie preferences in your browser or device settings.
