COOKIES WE USE ON THIS WEBSITE

 

TYPES OF COOKIES WE USE 

 

The following types of cookies are used on this website:

 

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for the operation of the website, for example, checking whether your browser has cookies enabled to ensure you have an optimal experience on the website.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily, and to see which pages people visit most frequently.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the website so it is personalised to your experience and so for example you do not receive the same messages repeatedly.
  • Marketing Cookie. As a rule we do not share any of our visitors’ information with third parties for the purposes of marketing. However we do have some embedded content on this website from Youtube (i.e. video) in order to enhance it’s look and functionality. When you interact with this content it is as if you are interacting with the source website of the embedded content, and so they may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
