Cookies policy

We use cookies and similar tools across our websites to improve their performance and enhance your user experience. This policy explains how we do that.

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, a cookie will store your username in our login section, so that you don’t have to type it in each time. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.

Why We Use Cookies
We use cookies to enhance your user experience and to make our website as easy as possible for you to navigate. You can disable the future use of cookies or delete any cookies already stored on your computer by using your browser settings. (Please read the text on How to manage cookies.) However, disabling or deleting cookies may prevent you from using certain functionalities on our website.

Cookies we use
Generally, our cookies perform up to three different functions:

  1. Performance Cookies: We utilise cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by eventually customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.
  2. Functionality Cookies: We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customisation preferences. We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online.
  3. Third Party Cookies - Google Analytics: Currently we are using Google Analytics to analyze the audience of the website and improve our content. No personal information is collected from Google
    Analytics. Further information on the privacy policy concerning Google Analytics

Can a website user block cookies?

Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of our website do not work properly. For more information on how companies use cookies visit www.allaboutcookies.org
