What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are sent to your computer, mobile phone, or tablet when you visit a website. Cookies stay on your device and are sent back to the website they came from when you visit it again.
Cookies collect data and send it to us while you use the site. These are written into mobile apps and web pages that you go to on your device and can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies, and the most effective way to do this is through the settings on your web browser. If you disable or decline cookies, you may not be able to access some parts of the website, and some features may not function properly or be available to you.
We use the following types of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies: are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features.
Analytics cookies: it is important for us to understand how you use the site, for example, how efficiently you can navigate around it, and what features you use. Analytics Cookies enable us to gather this information, helping us to improve the site and your experience of it.
Performance cookies: collect information about how visitors use our site. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our site.
Functionality cookies: are used to provide services or to remember choices you make so we can personalise our content for you.
Persistent cookies: are those which remain on your computer or device for a predetermined period and are activated each time you visit our site.

Additional points to keep in mind

Cookies with more than one use
Managing cookies choices in your browser
You can turn off or delete cookies in your browser. If you do this, it may affect sites that use similar cookies to us.
Cookie choices you set in your browser replace any you set on a single website. For instance, if you run an ad blocker on your browser, you won’t see ads that are tailored to you, even if you have turned on marketing cookies.
At times, we track emails to help us improve the communications we send. We use small images called pixels within our emails to tell us things like whether you opened the email, how many times and the device you used. We may also set a cookie to find out if you clicked on any links in the email. The image stays in the email but leaves nothing else on your device.
How to stop email tracking
You can stop this by closing the email before you download any images or click on any links. You can also set your browser or email program to restrict or block our emails. Sometimes your browser or email program setting will automatically accept cookies. For more details on this, you will need to read the instructions for your browser, email program or device.
Changes to this policy
We may alter this policy at any time. You are therefore advised to check this page from time to time.
