Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

As with most oth­er com­mer­cial web­sites, our web­site uses a stan­dard tech­nol­o­gy called cook­ies’. Cook­ies con­tain infor­ma­tion that is trans­ferred to your computer’s hard dri­ve. They help us to improve our web­site and to deliv­er a bet­ter and more per­son­alised ser­vice. They also save you from re-inputting infor­ma­tion when you return to our website.

A cook­ie’ is a very small text doc­u­ment, which often includes an anony­mous unique iden­ti­fi­er. When you vis­it a web­site, that site’s com­put­er asks your com­put­er for per­mis­sion to store this file in a part of your hard dri­ve specif­i­cal­ly des­ig­nat­ed for cook­ies. Each web­site can send its own cook­ie to your brows­er if your browser’s pref­er­ences allow it, unless (to pro­tect your pri­va­cy) your brows­er only per­mits a web­site to access the cook­ies it has already sent to you, not the cook­ies sent to you by oth­er web­sites. For fur­ther infor­ma­tion, vis­it www​.about​cook​ies​.org.

How we use cookies

We use cook­ies to record infor­ma­tion about a user’s access to this web­site. Users may view the web­site with­out the use of cook­ies by leav­ing the web­site, dis­abling cook­ies in their Inter­net brows­er and re-enter­ing the web­site, but this may lim­it your access to this web­site or the func­tion­al­i­ty of cer­tain pages with­in the web­site. By using this web­site with­out dis­abling cook­ies, you con­sent to us col­lect­ing and using infor­ma­tion obtained from cookies.

Infor­ma­tion gath­ered through cook­ies and web serv­er logs may include the date and time of vis­its, the pages viewed, time spent at our web­site, and the web­sites vis­it­ed just before and just after our website.

We may col­lect infor­ma­tion about your com­put­er, includ­ing where avail­able, your IP address, oper­at­ing sys­tem and brows­er type, for sys­tem admin­is­tra­tion pur­pos­es, and to report aggre­gate infor­ma­tion to any third par­ty adver­tis­ers on our web­site. This is sta­tis­ti­cal data about our users’ brows­ing actions and pat­terns, and does not iden­ti­fy any individual.

Togeth­er with any third par­ty adver­tis­ers on our web­site, we may also use small pieces of code called web bea­cons’ or clear gifts’ to deter­mine which adver­tise­ments and pro­mo­tions users have seen and how users respond­ed to them.

Please note that any third par­ty adver­tis­ers on our web­site may also use cook­ies, over which we have no control.

Why we use cookies

As you browse on our web­site, the web­site uses its cook­ies to dif­fer­en­ti­ate you from oth­er users, in order to make sure you don’t see the same con­tent repeat­ed­ly, to deliv­er con­tent spe­cif­ic to your inter­ests, and to help pro­vide you with an excel­lent user experience.

Cook­ies, in con­junc­tion with our web server’s log files, also allow us to cal­cu­late the aggre­gate num­ber of peo­ple vis­it­ing our web­site and to check which parts of the web­site are most pop­u­lar. This helps us gath­er feed­back in order con­stant­ly to improve our web­site and bet­ter serve our cus­tomers. Cook­ies do not allow us to gath­er any per­son­al infor­ma­tion about you and we do not gen­er­al­ly store any per­son­al infor­ma­tion that you pro­vid­ed to us in your cookies.
