This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse
our website and also allows us to improve our Site. We and our business
partners collect information about your use of our website through cookies.
Cookies are information files stored on your computer, tablet or smartphone
that help websites remember who you are and information about your visit.
Cookies can help to display the information on a website in a way that
The cookies we and our business partners use on this website are broadly
grouped into the following categories:
Essential – Some of the cookies on our website are essential for us
to be able to provide you with a service you have requested. An example
of this would be a cookie used to enable you to log into your account
on the website or which allows communication between your browser and
the website. Our cookie preference cookie described in the section “How
can I reject or opt out of receiving cookies?” is also an essential
cookie. You may not be able to use our website without these cookies.
Analytics – We use analytics cookies to helps us understand how users
engage with our website. An example is counting the number of different
people coming to our website or using a particular feature, rather than
the total number of times the site or feature is used. Without this
cookie, if you visited the website once each week for three weeks we
would count you as three separate users. We would find it difficult
to analyse how well our website was performing and improve it without
your preferences so we know how you like to use our website. Examples
of this would be remembering you so that you are served with the same
content or to remember you when you come back to the site.
Social Sharing – We use third party cookies to allow you to share content
directly on the social networking/sharing sites like Facebook, Twitter
or Google+. Examples would be if you wanted to “like” or “tweet” about
us or our products or services. Please see our “Third Party Cookies”
section below for more details.
Interest-Based Advertising – You will have noticed that when you visit
websites you will be shown adverts for products and services you may
wish to buy. The money made by website owners for showing third party
adverts on their websites often pays for the cost of running the website
and therefore usually allows you to use the website without having to
pay a registration or usage fee. To try and ensure that the adverts
you see are relevant to you third party cookies may be used to collect
information about the types of things that interest you, for example
websites you visit and the geography that you are based in. Having these
cookies does not increase the number of adverts you will be shown, but
simply makes the adverts you see more relevant. Please see our “Third
Party Cookies” section below for more details.
If you do not wish cookies to be stored on your machine, you can do
a.delete the cookies from your browser. Most browsers also allow you
to prevent all or some cookies being stored on your machine in the future.
For more information on how to delete or disable cookies from your browser
please use the "help" function within your browser or alternatively
b.please note that we can’t always control third party cookies stored
on your machine from our website and where this is the case you will
need to visit the relevant third party’s website directly to manage
cookies stored on your machine by them. Please see our "Third Party
Cookies" section below. Please be aware that disabling cookies may impact
the functionality of this website.
Some of the cookies described in the section above are stored on your
machine by third parties when you use our website. Third parties may
also read cookies on your browser to collect information or to serve
content or advertisements to you. We have no control over these cookies
or how the third parties use them. They are used to allow that third
party to provide a service to us, for example analytics. For more information
