Cookie Policy

When you visit our website, we may store some information (commonly known as a “cookie”) on your computer. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes track information about you, for instance the date and time of your visit and how you use our website.

A cookie helps you get the best out of our website and helps us to provide you with a more customised service. We use the following cookies:

Necessary cookies – to enable the website to function properly. They include cookies which enable you to login to your account.

Performance cookies – these cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our website. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the website. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our website, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

Functionality cookies – these cookies enable our website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation, for example by enabling us to recognise you when you revisit our website so that you will not have to re-enter your details each time you visit it, and by speeding up your searches and storing information about your preferences (for example your language preferences) in order to customise our website to your individual interests. They 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 then some or all of these services may not function properly.

Advertising/Tracking cookies – these cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They enable us to profile and track data across multiple websites and record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. If you accept these cookies, we may show our advertisements on other websites based on your user profile and preferences. We will use this information to make our website and our advertising campaigns more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

How to manage cookies

To enable all cookies other than strictly necessary cookies (being those which are necessary for the website to function and cannot therefore be disabled via the settings we provide) i.e., those listed below, you are required to click the ‘accept’ button on the “cookie consent banner” that launches when you visit our website.

Once you have clicked ‘accept’ or ‘reject’, you can subsequently review and amend the setting for each category of cookies by clicking on the icon in the bottom left of your screen and selecting ‘change cookie settings’.

Alternatively, you can use your internet browser to block or delete any cookies from our website if you want to (your browser’s help screen or manual should tell you how to do this), but certain parts of our website are reliant on the use of cookies to operate correctly and may not work correctly if you set your browser not to accept cookies.

Please note that if you leave our website (for instance by clicking on a link on the site that opens up a new browser or new website) then that other website may also use cookies, over which we have no control. Please refer to their cookie policy for information on how they use cookies.
