Cookie Policy

Introduction

Our Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information. This policy specifically explains how we and our partners deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

Changes

Last Updated: 22nd April 2020

Although most changes are likely to be minor, we may change this Cookie Policy from time to time. We encourage you to frequently check this page for any changes to our Cookie Policy. Your further use of the Services after a change to our Cookie Policy will be subject to the updated Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”). Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. At present we only use cookies for analytical purposes such as monitoring and analysing how users interact with our Services so we can create new features that we think our users will enjoy or make our Services easier to use. For more information on the choices you have about the cookies we use, please see the Controlling Cookies section below.

Third Party / Embedded Content

We may make use of different third party applications and services to enhance the experience of website visitors. These include social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons), or embedded content from YouTube and Vimeo.

Controlling Cookies

Visitors may wish to restrict the use of cookies or completely prevent them from being set. Most browsers provide for ways to control cookie behavior such as the length of time they are stored – either through built-in functionality or by utilising third party plugins. If you disable cookies, please be aware that some of the features of our service may not function correctly. To find out more on how to manage and delete cookies, visit aboutcookies.org. For more details on your choices regarding use of your web browsing activity for interest-based advertising visit youronlinechoices.eu (EU based) or optout.aboutads.info (US based).
