Essential and Non-Essential Cookies

Essential cookies are cookies that are either used solely to carry out or facilitate the transmission of communication over a network or strictly necessary to provide an online service which you have requested.

Non-essential cookies are cookies that do not fall within the definition of essential cookies, such as cookies that analyse your behaviour on a website.

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of Our Website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of Our Website. These cookies are essential for the operation of Our Website and do not store any personal data.

We may use the following non-essential cookies:

  • Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around Our Website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way Our Website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. If these cookies are turned off we are unable to monitor the performance of Our Website.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to Our Website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to Our Website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make Our Website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

Except for essential cookies, all cookies will expire as set out in the table.
