1. WHAT ARE COOKIES OR SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES?
Cookies are very small text files or pieces of code, which often include an unique identifier. When you visit a website, the website will request to store this text file on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information.
Other information gathered through cookies may include the date and time of visits and how you are using the particular website.
We also use similar technologies to cookies known as “web beacons”, “pixels” or “tags”. These technologies do a similar job to cookies, allowing website operators to count page views and understand how visitors interact with and respond to certain content on a webpage, email.
For the purposes of the remaining sections of this Cookie Notice, we refer to all cookies and similar technologies using the above features as “cookies”.
We use “first party cookies” and “third party cookies” in connection with our Site and service. First party cookies are cookies placed by us to collect information about you. Third party cookies are cookies placed by third party website operators. Information about you collected by those third party cookies will be shared with the relevant third party. Please refer to the relevant third party website operator’s privacy notice for more details about the information they collect and how they use it.
You should be aware that applications you use to access our Site, such as your website browser, may also place cookies on your device when visiting our Site, or other websites. An example of this would be where you sign in to Google Chrome using a Google Account (see Section 6 below). We do not have control over these third party cookies, so you will need to manage these cookies in the settings of the relevant applications.
For more details on cookies and similar technologies, please visit All About Cookies.
2. HOW LONG DO COOKIES LAST?
All cookies have expiration dates that determine how long they stay in your browser:
Session Cookies – these are temporary cookies that are placed on your device during your browsing session and then expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser.
Persistent Cookies – these are designed to last for a pre-defined period of time, which varies depending on the nature of the cookie. Persistent cookies stay in your browser until they reach their individual expiry date, or until you manually delete them (see Section 5 below).
3. WHICH COOKIES DO WE USE ON OUR SITE?
To see the categories of cookies we use on our Site, and the individual cookies we use as well as the purposes for which they are used, please visit our [Preference Centre], where you can also review and manage your cookie consent preferences whenever you wish.
Cookie Category Descriptions
- Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are necessary 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, such as 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 then work
- Analytics & Performance Cookies: These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
- Functional Cookies: These cookies enable us to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation when you use our site. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of our site may not function properly.
- Advertising & Social Media Cookies: These cookies (also known as targeting cookies) may be set by us, our advertising partners and social media providers. They may be used by us and those advertising partners to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts and content on other sites and services. They do this by uniquely identifying your browser and internet device and analysing your online activity. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising. These cookies may also measure the effectiveness of advertising. They may also allow you to quickly share content across social media (through the use of simple “sharing” buttons) or sign-in to our services using your social media account
Non-essential Cookies – We may only store and access non-essential cookies on your device with your permission. You are not obliged to give consent to our use of non-essential cookies. If you do give your consent and then change your mind, you can block or delete them (see Section 5 below).
Essential Cookies – Please note that we do not need your consent to store and access essential cookies on your device, although you can still block or delete them (see Section 5 below).
5. HOW DO I REFUSE, BLOCK OR DELETE COOKIES?

6. WHAT ABOUT GOOGLE CHROME OR OTHER BROWSER COOKIES?
Separately to our use of Google Analytics cookies, when you access the Site via Google applications such as Google Chrome, Google may collect user information for the purpose of Google serving personalised advertising across your devices. Google is able to place these advertising cookies on the devices used by visitors to the Site because we use Google services to run the Site. However these cookies are dropped for Google’s own purposes and as such we do not have any control over how or when they are dropped. You will need to opt out of receiving these cookies via your Google settings. For further information about these cookies please see: https://policies.google.com/technologies/types?hl=en-US. Please note that other browsers may use similar tools.
7. WHAT TECHNOLOGIES ARE USED IN EMAILS?
Please note that any emails you receive from us may contain cookies to help us to see if recipients have opened an email and understand how recipients have interacted with it. Once you click on an email that contains a cookie, your contact information may subsequently be cross-referenced to [the source email] and/or the relevant cookie. If you have enabled images, cookies may be set on your computer or mobile device. Cookies will also be set if you click on any link within the email.
If you do not wish to accept cookies from any one of our emails, simply close the email before downloading any images or clicking on any links. You can also set your browser to restrict cookies or to reject them entirely. These settings will apply to all cookies whether included on websites or in emails.
In some instances, depending on your email or browser settings, cookies in an email may be automatically accepted (for example, when you've added an email address to your address book or safe senders list). Please refer to your email browser or device instructions for more information on this.
