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: 

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 these  cookies. 

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.  

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.
