Cookies Policy

 

We use necessary cookies to make our site work. These cookies are set automatically. When you consent to it, we also use other cookies to improve the way our site works, measure how it is used and provide relevant advertising to you.
This policy details how our site works and how we put you in control of managing cookies. It also outlines what cookies are used and why, as well as other information that may be useful to you.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small text files set on a site to help operate and support its functionality. They collect and store certain information about the way a site is used, and can help a site integrate with other third party sites. Pixels and tags are similar technologies. For convenience, we refer to all of these as cookies.

Cookies can be set by us or, in some cases, by external third party services who we allow to run on our site, which may include analytics. Cookies set by us are referred to as ‘first party cookies’, whereas cookies set by external third party services allowed to run on our site are referred to as ‘third party cookies’.

We may also refer to ‘session cookies’, which expire at the end of a user’s browsing session (usually when a user exits their browser), and ‘persistent cookies’, which are stored on your device for a longer period and in between sessions.
If you are based in the UK, there is lots of useful information about cookies on the Information Commissioner’s website.

WHY ARE COOKIES USED ON THIS SITE?

Our site uses cookies to enable certain functionality, such as security and accessibility. These cookies are necessary and set by default. You can disable these cookies by changing your browser settings, but doing so may mean that our site does not work properly.

When you consent to it, our site also uses the following cookies for the following reasons:
Preference & Functional Cookies – to allow our site to remember you when you return, as well as what choices you previously made, such as what currency you selected or your choice of language;
Performance & Statistics Cookies (sometimes called analytical cookies) – to recognise and count the number of visitors on our site, and to collect other information about how you use our site, such as what pages you previously visited and what links you previously clicked on. These are sometimes third-party cookies; and
Marketing & Advertising Cookies (sometimes called targeting cookies) – to collect information about your online activity to help advertisers deliver, for example, more relevant information to you. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

TELLING US ABOUT YOUR COOKIES SETTINGS

You can change your cookies settings at any time by using the cookies consent mechanism.
The cookies consent mechanism remembers your preferences from your first visit to our site. If you want to change your preferences, you can click on the cog icon at the bottom left of your screen and the cookies consent mechanism will re-appear.

You can accept all cookies by clicking ‘Accept All Cookies’ or reject all cookies (except necessary cookies) by clicking ‘Reject All Cookies’. Alternatively, you can adjust the available sliders to ‘On’ or ‘Off’ to indicate your preference for each cookie category by clicking ‘Manage Preferences’ and saving your preferences. You may need to refresh our site in order for your preferences to take effect.

Our site will only use necessary cookies without your permission – we need your permission to set all other cookies. The cookie consent mechanism does not affect the way that necessary cookies are used. As we set out above, if you would prefer necessary cookies not to be set, you can change your browser settings, but this may mean that our site no longer works properly.
