Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

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 matches your interests.  Most major websites use cookies.

What cookies are used on this Website?

The cookies we and our business partners use on this website are broadly grouped into the following categories:

 

     1.  Essential cookies.  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.

     2.  Analytics cookies.  We use analytics cookies to help 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 these cookies.

     3.  User cookies.  We use cookies to improve your experience by remembering 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.

     4.  Social Sharing cookies.  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.

     5.  Interest-Based Advertising cookies.  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 are a type of this cookie.  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.

How can I reject or opt out of receiving cookies?

If you do not wish cookies to be stored on your machine, you can do the following:

     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 visit www.allaboutcookies.org; and or

     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.
