What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of information which are issued to your computer when you visit a website and which store and sometimes track information about your use of the site. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web session and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are only used where you ask us to remember your login details for when you next return to the site and will last for a longer duration.
Cookies are very important for the general use of an interactive website.
Types of cookies (categories)
The cookies used on this website are explained below and based on the International Chamber of Commerce guide for cookie categories.
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, we are able to offer live chat services by storing a cookie which keeps track of your conversation with us. These cookies may also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of our web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Targeting & sharing cookies
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks that have our explicit permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation. We do not currently use these sort of cookies.
For more information about this type of interest based advertising, and about how to turn this feature off please visit http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.
