Cookies and other online tracking technologies are small bits of data or code that are used to identify your devices when you use and interact with our websites and other services. They are often used for remembering your preferences, and generally improving your online experience.
There are several types of Cookies, some of which may be used by and on Our Site.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential for the running of a website and its features. They allow proper website functionality and access to services such as your account, secure shopping and posting comments on a blog. Without them, a website cannot perform properly.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website. For example, which pages are visited most often, how people navigate around the site and if there are any error messages that appear. They don’t collect any information that identifies a user, only anonymised, aggregated information that is used to improve the way the website works and the customer journey.
These cookies allow a website to remember your preferences and choices you make, such as your preferred language, region and username. They gather information on things you customise and select and retain it for your next visit. They are not essential but enhance the user experience of a site.
Third Party Cookies
Some website pages may use third party services or software, such as maps, online videos or social networking features. Many of these services may set cookies in your browser. This website has no control over third party cookies but visitors can opt out of these cookies via their browser.
Flash cookies are commonly used in website advertisements, video clips and animation. They enable a website to recognise the user’s browser when it returns and store information such as when a video stopped playing. They also provide functions such as remembering your settings and preferences.
These cookies are used by advertisers to deliver adverts that are more relevant to you and your interests. They keep track of which ads a person has viewed, control how many times they are exposed to the same advert and track the effectiveness of marketing campaigns. This information can then be used in remarketing, by customising adverts the user sees on other websites.
Web beacons are bits of data that count the number of users who access a website or webpage. They allow an organisation to see if a cookie has been activated, if a user has clicked through to links to adverts contained in emails. This is used to identify which emails are of most interest to a customer and to track the success of advertisements.
In addition to the controls that We provide, you can choose to enable or disable Cookies in your internet browser. Most internet browsers also enable you to choose whether you wish to disable all cookies or only third party Cookies. By default, most internet browsers accept Cookies but this can be changed. For further details, please consult the help menu in your internet browser or the documentation that came with your device.
You can choose to delete Cookies on your computer or device at any time, however you may lose any information that enables you to access Our Site more quickly and efficiently including, but not limited to, login and personalisation settings.
It is recommended that you keep your internet browser and operating system up-to-date and that you consult the help and guidance provided by the developer of your internet browser and manufacturer of your computer or device if you are unsure about adjusting your privacy settings.
