This cookies policy (“Cookies Policy”) is intended to inform you how we use cookies and similar technologies such as web beacons and pixel tags (referred to collectively below as “cookies”) on our website at (“Website”) and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our Website. Please take a moment to read and understand this Cookie Policy. This Cookie Policy should also be read in conjunction with our Privacy Policy and our Legal Notice.

What are cookies?

Cookies and similar technologies are very small text documents or pieces of code, which often include an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website or use a mobile application, a computer asks your computer or mobile device for permission to store this file on your computer or mobile device and access information from it. Information gathered through cookies and similar technologies may include the date and time of visits and how you are using the particular website or mobile application. Cookies are used by us as part of our Website and they are also used by some third parties.

For more details on cookies and similar technologies please visit All About Cookies. For the purposes of the remaining sections of this Cookie Policy we will refer to all technologies using the above features as “cookies”.

Consent to our use of cookies

By using the Website you acknowledge that we may store and access essential cookies on your computer or other device. Essential cookies are cookies which are essential for the operation of our Website.

Further, where you give permission, we may also store and access certain non-essential cookies on your computer or other device. These cookies are not essential to the operation of our Website but allow us to provide additional functionality or to gather additional information about your use of our Website. You are not obliged to give consent to our use of non-essential cookies and we will not place such cookies until you have given your consent.

If you wish to block or delete cookies, or you would like to withdraw consent to our use of non-essential cookies, you can find out how to do so below.

What do we do with cookies?

Essential cookies

We use cookies where they are essential for the operation of the Website, for example to remember that a visitor has signed in to the Website and to preserve user session states.

Session cookies

We may use cookies to allow the Website to uniquely identify your browsing session on our Website, which allows us to coordinate this information with data from our Website server. These cookies expire at the end of your browsing session.

Analytical cookies

Our web pages use a number of analytical cookies to help us to analyse use of our Website. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to our website and how they move around the site when they are using it. These are persistent cookies which do not expire at the end of your browsing session.

Email cookies

Our e-mails may use cookies which gather information about the emails we send to subscribers to our mailing list to help us analyse the use of and interest in the content we distribute. They allow the receipt of e-mails to be tracked, whether the email has been opened and which links have been clicked. That helps to determine whether and which subscribers are interested in particular content and communications and to make them more relevant. Once you click on an e-mail that contains a cookie, your contact information may subsequently be cross-referenced to the source e-mail and the relevant cookie. In some of our e-mail messages, we may use a “click-through URL” linked to certain websites administered by us or on our behalf.

Social media

We may sometimes embed content from other websites. Pages with this embedded content may set cookies from the originating website. Similarly, social media services may set cookies if you view social media content on our Website, or if you share content across social media through the use of ‘sharing’ buttons. We do not control the dissemination of these cookies and cannot block them. You should check the relevant third party website for more information.
