We use cookies for the following reasons:

Essential 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.

Analytical/performance cookies – 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. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

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.

How to Control Cookies

You can block non essential cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site. 

What happens if I say ‘no’ to allowing non essential cookies in my browser?

The website will still work and you will be able to get the information you need from the site but some functions may not work or work as well as they would with cookies.

What is the impact for us ?

We use Analytical Cookies to count the number of people who use the site and to analyse how they use it. We do this to make sure that our sites are as good as they can be and this is the primary evidence we use when trying to improve what we offer to users.

If you decline cookies then your site usage won’t be counted and measured in this way so we won’t be able to take your actions into account when analyse data and seeking to improve our service based on that analysis.

Third-party cookies

If you share our pages on Facebook or other social websites you may also be sent cookies from those websites.

We don’t control the setting of these cookies, so please check these websites’ cookies and privacy policies for information about what they do.
