4.0 SESSION COOKIES
These enable you to perform essential functions on the site, such as remembering a repeat form field item within a browsing session. In addition, they help by limiting the need to transfer information across the Internet. They are not stored on your computer and will expire when you terminate your browser session.
5.0 PERSISTENT COOKIES
These enable us to recognize anonymous repeat visitors to the site. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, a record can be taken of specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path taken through the site. By monitoring this information we’re able to make improvements to the site, including the fixing of errors and the enhancement of content.
We use Google Analytics to analyze page use, page interactions and the routes taken through our sites. These are known as ‘website metrics’ or ‘analytics’. We do not record any personal information as part of this process.
6.0 TRACKING COOKIES
The aim of tracking cookies is often to collect certain information to carry out various research into behavior, demographics and not least for targeted marketing. Third-parties may use these on our site and we may place such cookies on third party websites.
7.0 3RD PARTY COOKIES
When you visit our site you may notice some cookies that are not related to our company. If you go on to a web page that contains embedded content, for example from Facebook or YouTube, you may be sent cookies from these websites. We do not control the generation of these cookies, so we suggest that you check the individual third-party websites for more information about their privacy policies and their cookies and how to manage them.
8.0 HOW ARE COOKIES USED FOR ADVERTISING PURPOSES?
Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us collect aggregated audit data, research, and performance reporting for advertisers. Pixels enable us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you, and know when certain ads have been shown to you. Since your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
