    1. Introduction to cookies

    Cookies are tiny text files stored on your computer that collect information when you browse a site.   We use cookies to understand how you’re using our website and how we can provide you with the best experience for your needs. Some of these cookies are for third parties that help us analyse behaviour on our site or advertise and measure the impact of our advertising.

    1. Why do we use cookies?

    The information we collect via cookies allows us to understand visitor behaviour on our website, which enables us to optimise the site experience, both by improving the content and making it easier to use. For example, we may remember your login details or preferences such as language.

    Some of the web beacons and cookies we use on our website are from third parties. These help us advertise, serve content, communicate with you and measure the impact of our website.

    We may also use browser web storage and web beacons.  Browser storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. When used in “local storage” mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions (for example, so that the data is retrievable even after the browser has been closed and reopened).  A web beacon is an electronic file that signals when a webpage, advertisement, video, other content, an email, or a newsletter has been viewed. We may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to collect data that helps us better understand how visitors move from page to page within websites.

    Please note that cookies can’t hurt your computer. We don’t store any sensitive information that will personally identify you, such as your credit card details. If you do log in with any personal information, our cookies will simply hold the ‘key’ that, once you’re signed in, is associated with this information.  We may use encrypted information gathered from your details to help improve your experience of the site.

    1. Disabling Cookies

    Do Not Track

    Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers, with some newer browsers offering it as default. If you enable it, it sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn’t tracked, for example by third party ad or social networks, or analytic companies. You can opt out of tracking and analytics on this website by changing your settings in the Managing Cookies section on this page.

    At present no industry-wide uniform standard has been agreed and adopted to determine how DNT requests should be managed, so our website doesn’t currently respond to DNT requests. Until that standard is established, we’ll continue to review DNT and other new technologies, but won’t respond to DNT requests.

    We’re giving you this information as part of our initiative to both comply with legislation, and make sure we’re honest and clear about your privacy when using our website.

    Here’s a list of the main cookies we use, and what we use them for.
