Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our websites and use their features, such as accessing secure areas of our websites.

 

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use our websites. For instance, they tell us which pages you visit most often and if you receive any error messages from our web pages. These cookies do not identify you. All information they collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. We use these cookies to measure and analyse how our customers use our websites and to improve their functionality and the user experience. 

 

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our websites to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, personalised features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to customisable parts of our websites including text size and font. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

 

Targeting & Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts and communications more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

We only use the types of cookies described above. We don’t use so-called ‘specialist cookies’.
