WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (for example by remembering preference settings).
WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE?
Essential Cookies. Essential cookies are necessary for the Site to work and enable you to move around it and to use its services and features. Without these absolutely necessary cookies, the Site will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide the Site or certain services or features you request.
Preference Cookies. Preference cookies collect information about your choices and preferences, and allow us to remember language or other local settings and customise the Site accordingly.
Social Plug-in Tracking Cookies. Such cookies are used to track members [and non-members] of social media networks for market research analytics, and product development.
Analytics Cookies. Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the Site, and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Site, help us record any difficulties you have with the Site, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Site, rather than the usage of a single person.
Marketing Cookies. Advertising Cookies are used for marketing purposes.
