Types of cookies
Strictly necessary cookies: These are cookies that are required for the operation of a website. They include, for example, cookies that enable users to log into secure areas of a website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
Analytical/performance cookies: These types of cookies allow providers to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around their website when they are using it. This assists providers in improving the way their website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
Functionality cookies: These are used to recognise users when they return to a website. They enable the personalisation of content, the recognition of users and remember user preferences (for example, their choice of language or region).
Targeting cookies: These cookies record a user’s visit to a website, the individual pages visited and the links followed. If the cookie is set by a third party (for example, an advertising network) which also monitors traffic on other websites, this type of cookies may also be used to track a user’s movements across different website and to create profiles of their general online behaviour. Information collected by tracking cookies is commonly used to serve users with targeted online advertising.
Third party functions
Our site may from time to time include functionality provided by other websites, such as YouTube videos, or images located on 3rd party servers. These 3rd parties may set cookies that we have no control over. If you do not wish to accept third party cookies, this can be done by following the instructions provided below, however disabling these cookies may break the functions offered by these third parties
Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies
We use the services provided by Google Analytics to track visitors and build up a picture of how visitors use our website, where they have come from, the pages they visit etc. In order to do this, Google analytics will set up to three cookies on your browser. No personally identifiable information is stored, and all the data we receive is anonymous.
Turning Cookies Off
In all modern browsers you may elect to reject cookies, and we provide instructions on how to do this below. Please note however that by doing so parts of our website may no longer function as expected. If your concerns are based around ‘3rdparty’ cookies, then we recommend you just reject those cookies, rather than all cookies so that we can still provide you with the functionality you expect.
