The information that we gather includes IP addresses, operating systems, browser types, and, depending on the cookie, statistical data about browsing actions and patterns.

These are essential to the running and functionality of the website and cannot be disabled, as doing so may affect the performance and function of the site.
PERFORMANCE OR EXPERIENCE COOKIES
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website. For example, which pages are visited most often, how people navigate around the site, and if there are any error messages that appear. They collect only anonymised data or aggregated information that is used to improve the way the site works and the user experience.

These cookies allow the website to remember the preferences and choices you make, such as your preferred language, region and user name. They gather information on things you customise and select and retain it for your next visit. They are not essential but enhance user experience and efficiency.
THIRD PARTY COOKIES
Some portions of the websites use third party services and software, such as maps, online videos, or social networking features, such as a Twitter feed. Many of these services may set cookies in your browser. This website has no control over third party cookies, but visitors can opt out of these via our website cookie banner.
These are common in website adverts, video clips and animation. They enable a website to recognise the user’s browser when it returns and store information such as when a video is launched or viewed.
Please note that, at this time, the cookies below are not present on our websites, but we provide details on these types of cookies for your information:
These are used to deliver adverts that are deemed relevant to you and your interests, based on your previous web browsing history. They keep track of which adverts have been viewed and control how many times a person is exposed to the same advert, whilst tracking the effectiveness of marketing campaigns. The information is then used for remarketing, by customising the adverts the user sees on other websites.
These are “bits” of data that count the number of users who access a website. They allow organisations to see if a cookie has been activated, if a user has clicked through to that site from a link or advert contained within an email. These are used to identify which emails are of most interest to a customer and track the success of an advertisement or marketing campaign.
