- What types of cookies do we use?
2.1 The types of cookies that may be used on our Website fall into one of four categories as follows:
(a) ‘Strictly Necessary’ cookies. These cookies are essential for the operation of our Website and enable you to access certain features. Without these cookies, we would be unable to provide you with the online services you request. These cookies do not track where you have been on the internet and do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes.
(b) Functional cookies. Functional cookies are used to recognise you when you return to our Website. They also remember your preferences (such as your username, language and region) on our Website and enable us to personalise our content for you. The information collected by these cookies is usually anonymised, so we cannot identify you personally. Functional cookies do not track your internet usage or gather information which could be used for selling advertising, but they do help with serving advertising.
(c) Analytical cookies. Analytical cookies are used to monitor the performance of our Website. For example, they allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Website when they are using it. The information provided by these cookies allows us to analyse patterns of user behaviour and we use that information to enhance user experience or identify areas of the Website which may require maintenance. All of the information collected by these cookies is anonymous and is only used for statistical purposes.
(d) Targeting cookies. These cookies may be placed on your device by us or by trusted third parties. They remember that you have visited our Website and use that information to provide you with advertising which is tailored to your interests. This is often called online behavioural advertising (OBA) and involves the monitoring of interests based upon web browsing history. Your web browsing history can be used to infer things about you (for example, your age, gender etc.), and this information may also be used to make advertising on websites more relevant to you. Although behavioural advertising cookies can track your activity around the internet they cannot identify you personally, even if you are signed in to our Website. Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests. If you would like more information about OBA, including how to opt-out of these cookies, please visit www.youronlinechoices.com.
2.2 Our emails may contain a web beacon to track whether you open an email and if you click on any of the links in the email. We may use this information to help us analyse the types of topics that you are interested in and to let our advertisers know how many of our anonymised, aggregated users click on their advertisements. When you delete the email, the web beacon will be deleted. If you do not wish to receive these web beacons, you can choose to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.
2.3 When you browse our Website some cookies may be set by third parties, over which we have no control. When you visit a page with embedded third party content, the service provider may set their own cookies on your device. You may also encounter third party cookies resulting from our use of third party services, which help us monitor traffic on our Website. We do not control the use of these cookies and you should refer to the relevant third party websites for more information.
