There are broadly four types of cookies. These are “strictly necessary” cookies, “performance cookies”, “functional cookies” and “targeting or advertising cookies”. We don’t use all of these types of cookies but have provided you with a description of them below.
Strictly necessary cookies – these cookies are needed to provide services and features that you have specifically asked for. Websites do not need your consent to use these cookies.
Performance cookies – these cookies collect anonymous information about how you and other visitors use a website, such as which pages are visited most often and details of bugs and glitches on the website. Information gathered using these cookies is usually aggregated and made anonymous and only used to improve how the website works. The cookies we use are performance cookies. By using the Services, you consent to us placing and using this type of cookie on your computer or device.
Functional cookies – these cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience on websites. They allow the website provider to remember the choices you have made (such as your user name, language and country and preferences) and personalise and enhance your experience.
Targeting or advertising cookies – these cookies usually collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. They are also often used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They can also remember that you have visited a website and share this information with other organisations such as advertisers.
