COOKIES EXPLAINED

A cookie is a small amount of information that’s downloaded to your computer or device when you visit our Site. We use a number of different cookies, including functional, performance, advertising, and social media or content cookies. Cookies make your browsing experience better by allowing the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login and region selection). This means you don’t have to re-enter this information each time you return to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies also provide information on how people use the website, for instance whether it’s their first time visiting or if they are a frequent visitor.

The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device.

You can control and manage cookies in various ways. Please keep in mind that removing or blocking cookies can negatively impact your user experience and parts of our website may no longer be fully accessible.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can choose whether or not to accept cookies through your browser controls, often found in your browser’s “Tools” or “Preferences” menu. 

For more information on how to modify your browser settings or how to block, manage or filter cookies can be found in your browser’s help file or through such sites as www.allaboutcookies.org.

Additionally, please note that blocking cookies may not completely prevent how we share information with third parties such as our advertising partners.

 We collect device information using the following technologies:

“Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. The types of cookies used on our site include:

  • Strictly Necessary - means the cookies are essential for the provision of the site and any requested services, but do not perform any additional or secondary function.
  • Performance Cookies - are those that provide statistical information on site usage, i.e. web analytics.
  • Functionality Cookies - These cookies allow the provision of enhanced functionality and personalisation, such as videos and live chat. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these functions may not work properly.
  • Targeting/Advertising Cookies - are used to create profiles or personalise content. Third parties often set them and these cookies present the highest privacy risks to visitors. 
  • “Log files”-  track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, HTML_STORAGE referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
  • “Web beacons”, “tags”, and “pixels” - are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site. A tag is a generic name for code elements found in web pages. Most tags simply describe the content of the page, but certain types of tags contain programmatic elements or inject dynamic content like video or audio files into the page.Some tags, in particular ones that add content or functionality from sources external to your domain, can carry privacy risks which require assessment and management. These are third-party tags and in most cases they provide additional value to your website. However, you need to be aware of these, so that you can focus on where there are higher risks.Most of the cookies set on your website will be set via these tags, but some tags may also collect data about your visitors without the use of cookies.

LAWFUL BASIS

Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), if you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), we process your personal information under the following lawful bases:
