Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are used by websites to help them run smoothly and make certain features work. We use cookies to do things such as analyse anonymous data about site traffic and usage in order to improve our service to you.

Cookies cannot harm your computer and they do not contain any personal or private information.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. You can choose to alter your browser settings to prevent automatic acceptance, if you prefer. If you opt not to receive our cookies, we cannot guarantee that your experience with our website will be as quick or responsive as if you do receive cookies, and certain features may not work.

How long will a cookie stay on my computer?

The life of a cookie depends on what the purpose of the cookie is.

Session cookies are temporary cookies that exist in the cookie file of your browser only for as long as you stay on the site.

Persistent cookies are cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer. Their lifetime depends on the specific cookie.

What sort of cookies do we use?

We have divided our cookies into four categories, following international guidelines. These are:

1. Strictly Necessary

These cookies are essential to enable you to move you around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, you won’t be able to use the website properly.

2. Performance

3. Functionality

These cookies allow us to remember the choices you make and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of our web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as watching a video or commenting on the site.

4. Advertising or Tracking Cookies

We do not accept advertising from any other organisations on our websites. We do however advertise our own products and services on our websites and you may see adverts for us elsewhere on the internet. The cookies show us where you saw the advert; help us measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns; and limit the number of times you see an advert. We also use cookies to tailor the content of our members’ newsletter and the emails we send you so that the content is more relevant to you. We also include links to social networks like Facebook who may subsequently use information about your visit to target advertising to you on their websites
