We use the following categories of cookies on our websites.
- Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and you cannot switch them off. They are usually to enable login, for security and to remember your privacy preferences. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will then not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
- Performance cookies
These cookies allow us to count visits and actions so we can measure and improve the performance of our website and product. They help us to know which pages or features are the most and least popular, and see how visitors use and move around the site or product. They also tell us which of our ads brought you here so we know which work and which don't. These cookies don't usually contain any information that could identify you, and in any event we de-identify and aggregate all information collected. If you turn these off we will not have any information to understand how our website or product is being used. We use this information to make improvements and inform business decisions.
- Functionality cookies
These cookies remember choices you make, such as your last action, language and search parameters such as language preferences. We can use these to provide you with a better experience based on your preferences. The information from these cookies is anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
- Targeting / advertising cookies
These are usually set by our advertising partners. Those companies may use the information collected to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you turn them off you will experience less targeted advertising.
We are in the process of implementing a cookie management tool across our websites. Where this is in place, you can use it to see what cookies are dropped and to make choices.
Where this is not yet in place, you can use your browser settings to manage cookies. If you want to delete any cookies that are already on your computer, please go to the help and support area on your internet browser for instructions. Information on deleting or controlling cookies is available at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. Please note that if you delete or disable our cookies you may not be able to access certain areas or features of our site.
