Type of Cookies
We use the following types of cookies on our website:
Necessary - These are cookies which are essential for our websites to run. They include for example, cookies that allow you to remain logged into our website. Without these cookies, parts of our websites would not function. These cookies do not track where you have been on the internet and do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes.
Functional – These cookies are used to remember your preferences on our websites and to provide enhanced, more personal features. Functional cookies do not track your internet usage or gather information which could be used for selling advertising, but they do help with serving advertising.
Analytical - Analytical performance cookies are used to monitor the performance of our websites, for example, to determine the number of page views and the number of unique users a website has. Web analytics services may be designed and operated by third parties. The information provided by these cookies allows us to analyse patterns of user behaviour. We use that information to enhance your user experience or to identify areas of the website that may require maintenance. The information may include your member key, which is an internal identifier for all users. The information is used only for statistical purposes and will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Advertising - These cookies, which may be placed on your device by us or our trusted third-party service providers, remember that you have visited a website and use that information to provide you with advertising which is tailored to your interests. This is often called online behavioural advertising (OBA) and is done by grouping together shared interests based upon web browsing history. Your web browsing history can be used to infer things about you (e.g. your age, gender etc.), and this information may also be used to make advertising on websites more relevant to you. Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests. If you would like more information about OBA, including how to opt out of these cookies, see the section above, ‘How can I control my cookies’.
Where we associate personal information with necessary cookies, we process this information only for the purpose of our legitimate interest. Where we associate personal information with all other kinds of cookies, we process this information on the basis of your consent.
