Similar to other commercial websites, the Website uses a technology called "cookies" and web server logs to collect information about how the Website is used.
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site's computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies.
Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent on the Website, and the websites visited just before and just after the Website.
For further details on cookies please visit www.allaboutcookies.org where you can find comprehensive information on cookie restriction and blocking for a wide variety of browsers.
We use both first party and third party cookies. That is, both we and third party companies set cookies through this Website.
We use “analytical” cookies which, in conjunction with our web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the website are most popular. This helps us gather feedback so that we can improve the Website and better serve our users and clients.
We do not generally store any personal information that is collected via our cookies.
On some of our web pages third parties may also set their own cookies (for example when you click social media sharing buttons or view embedded videos hosted on another website). We cannot access the data stored in any such cookies.
We use ‘session’ cookies which enable you to carry information across pages of the Website and avoid having to re-enter information. Session cookies enable us to compile statistics that help us to understand how the Website is being used and to improve its structure.
We use ‘persistent’ cookies which are cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser for longer and help us to recognise you as a unique visitor to the Website, tailoring the content of certain areas of the Website to offer you content that match your preferred interests.
A full list of our cookies can be found below.
