A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is stored on your browser or the hard drive of your computer or device at the request of a website. We use a cookie which assigns a unique numerical identifier to your web browser and may enable us to recognize you as the same user who was at our website in the past and relate your use of the website to other information about you, such as your website usage information and personal information.
Cookies may also be used to enhance your experience on the site or to collect general usage and aggregated statistical information and detect and prevent fraud. Most browsers can be set to detect cookies and give you an opportunity to reject them, but refusing cookies may, in some cases, inhibit or preclude your use of the site or its features.
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (DNT) signals to websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not change our tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser.
We use the following cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies
These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website.
Analytical or performance cookies
These allow us to recognize 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.
As is the case with many web sites, our servers automatically collect your IP address when you visit our website, and we may associate that with your domain name or that of your Internet access provider. We may also capture certain “clickstream data” pertaining to your website usage. Clickstream data includes, for example, information about your computer or device, web browser and operating system and their settings, the referring page that linked you to the site, the pages, or content you see or click on during your visit and when and for how long you do so, items you download, the next website you visit when you leave the site, and any search terms you have entered on the site or a referral site. Among other things, this information enables us to generate analytics reports on the usage of our site.
We utilize Google Analytics for our web analytics, and you can opt out of your site usage data being included in our Google Analytics reports by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Our third-party partners, such as Google Analytics, collect information about your online activities over time and across our website. These third-parties may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser and we do not obligate these parties to honor DNT settings.
These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. A pixel tag (also known as a “clear GIF” or “web beacon”) is a tiny image – typically just one-pixel – that can be placed on a web page or in our electronic communications to you in order to help us measure the effectiveness of our content by, for example, counting the number of individuals who visit us online or verifying whether you’ve opened one of our emails or seen one of our web pages.
These tracking technologies may be deployed by us and/or by our service providers or partners on our behalf. These technologies enable us to assign a unique number or identifier to you and relate information about your website usage to other information about you, including your personal information. These technologies also enable us to recognize you when you access our website using different web browsers and different computers or devices.
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 more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
You can choose which cookies we can set by clicking on the button(s) as they appear under “Cookie Settings” on the cookie management pop-up banner upon entry to the website:
Strictly essential cookies ALWAYS ACTIVE
Analytical or performance cookies ON/OFF
Functionality cookies ON/OFF
Targeting cookies ON/OFF
However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including strictly necessary cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our website.
