Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. The table below explains the cookies we use and why.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Google defines tags as “segments of code provided by analytics, marketing, and support vendors to help you integrate their products into your websites or mobile apps.” Tags are commonly used to set cookies, although they can be used to set other types of code such as tracking pixels.
If you share our content with friends through social networks – such as Facebook, Google and Twitter – you may be sent cookies from these third party websites and services. We can’t control the setting of these cookies, so we suggest you check the third-party websites and services for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
The email we send contains a pixel which allows us to know the email has been opened. We also collect records of the links you click within the email using encoded URL strings. We collect this information to evaluate your interest in our newsletter and organisation, as well as to help us improve the content of our newsletter.
