COOKIES AND PERSONAL DATA POLICY
What are cookies?
Cookies are used by most websites in order to improve users’ experience by enabling a website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally enable us to improve the performance of our website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier.
Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).
You can find out more about the way cookies work on www.cookiecentral.com.
What’s in a cookie?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers.
We use the following cookies:
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, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognize 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.

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
How do third parties show adverts?
At times, third parties may show our adverts outside of our website. If you visit the site, having browsed content and then leave, third parties may ‘remember’ this visit and display a relevant advert within another website you visit. This process is commonly referred to as remarketing or retargeting. The three services this website uses for remarketing/ are Google, Facebook, and Bing.
Third parties ‘remember’ you and can display adverts through cookies. Cookies may be sent to your browser when you visit a page on the site, which will then be used to show adverts based on the content you browsed.
The use of first and third party cookies
Our website, app and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to inform, optimize, and serve ads based on someone's past visits to your website.
Our website, app and third-party vendors use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) together to report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to your site.
What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set
Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device a bit intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing.
If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings. Click on the Help function within your browser to find out more.
Please note, by turning off your personalization across the web and on Google Search, you may still see adverts.
If you would not like us to know your site activity you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. Internet Explorer will sometimes load the Google Analytics opt-out add-on after sending data to Google Analytics. If you are using Internet Explorer, the add-on will set cookies on your computer which will ensure that any data collected is removed immediately from the collection server. Please make sure that third-party cookies aren’t disabled for your Internet Explorer browser. If you delete your cookies, the add-on will reset these cookies, within a short time, to ensure that your Google Analytics browser add-on remains fully functional.
