WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a small text file sent by a web server to a web browser (Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer, for example). This cookie enables the website or web server to collect specific, but restricted, information from the web browser about the visitor (that’s you).
We use various cookies on this site. These range from long-term cookies (to remember you, or your preferences), to short-term, or session based, cookies that “expire” when you close your browser window.
We may use a number of social media tools, both 3rd party and custom built, to enhance visitor interaction (such as “Like”, “Share” or “Tweet”) on our site. If you already use these platforms their cookies may be set through our website and may be linked to your account with that provider. Data may then be used by them to customise certain adverts or functionality on their site(s) based on your usage of their service from this site.
We may use other 3rd party cookies (set from other websites, e.g. Google) to compile and store anonymous statistics about browsing patterns or site behaviour and build up a demographic profile. This data is collected along with other visitor data to form a collective analytics report. It’s important to note that this data is not personally identifiable and is only used for reporting/statistical purposes.
