Our Website uses cookies to distinguish You from other Users of Our Website. This helps Us to provide You with a good experience when You browse Our Website and also allows Us to improve the Website.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that We store on Your browser or the hard drive of Your computer if You agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to Your computer’s hard drive.

The cookies We use include:

  • “Analytical” cookies. They allow Us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Website when they are using it. This helps Us to improve the way Our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page. The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages / interactions with the website.
  • Important: Google Analytics does not store any personal information about your website users. Read the Google Analytics privacy document for more details.
  • Google Analytics supports two JavaScript libraries (tags) for measuring website usage: analytics.js and ga.js. The following sections describe how each use cookies.
  • “Strictly necessary” cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of Our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable You to log into secure areas of Our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • “Functionality” cookies. These are used to recognise You when You return to Our website. This enables Us to personalise Our content for You, greet You by name and remember Your preferences (for example, Your choice of language or region).
  • “Targeting” cookies. These cookies record Your visit to Our website, the pages You have visited and the links You have followed. We will use this information to make Our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to Your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
