Cookie notice

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work (or work more efficiently), record aspects of a website and provide information to the owners of the website.

How and why we use cookies?

We use cookies to give you the best experience when you visit our website. By using cookies, we can make it easier for you to do many things, such as filling out forms. Cookies can also allow us to tailor the content of our website, so we can show you services or advertisements we think you may be interested in.

The types of cookies we use on this website

The types of cookies we use are:

  • Strictly necessary cookies for the website to function, and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you, which amount to a request for services, eg., setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
  • Functional cookies, which enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation, eg., to remember your language or region or that you have already completed a survey/form. This information is usually anonymised and is not used for any other purpose. These functional cookies may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, some or all of these features or third-party services may not function properly.
  • Analytical and performance cookies that we, or our service providers, use to help us understand how effective our content is, what interests our users have, and to improve how this website works. We use these cookies to count visits and traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. These cookies also help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
  • Advertising and targeting cookies, which are cookies that may be set through our website by our advertising partners and may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. These targeting cookies do not store immediately identifying personal information (eg., name) but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising. These targeting cookies function by identifying your browser and internet device across different websites.

We will not set cookies that collect sensitive personal information without your consent.

The table below explains the cookies we use that collect, process or share personal information and what each is for.

Keeping your personal information safe

Our cookies do not store personal information such as your name, address, phone number or email address/content in a format that can be read by others. The cookies we use cannot read or search your computer, smartphone or web-enabled device to obtain information about you or your family or read any material kept on your hard drive.

Links to sites provided by others

If you follow a link from our website to another website, please be aware that the owner of the other website will have their own privacy policy and cookie settings for their site. We recommend you read their privacy policy, as we are not responsible or liable for what happens on their website.
