What are Cookies?

Your Internet browser has the in-built facility for storing small files called “cookies” that hold information which allows a website to recognise your account.

You have the ability to prevent your computer from accepting cookies but, if you do, certain features on the website may not work. All of our cookies are encrypted for use only by our website.

  1. Like many other websites, we use "cookies" to help us gather and store information about visitors to our Site.
  2. We may collect information about your computer, including your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers. This is statistical data about our Site users' browsing actions and patterns and does not identify you as an individual.
  3. "Session" cookies only exist whilst visitors are online on a particular occasion. These are temporary cookies that aid your journey around the site and remember the preferences you have selected during your session.
  4. "Persistent" cookies, which are not session-based, remain on a visitor's computer, so that you can be recognised as a previous visitor when you next visit our Site. This allows us to collect information about your browsing habits whilst on our site, and this can be useful in assisting us to monitor and improve our services.
  5. We do not store sensitive information such as account numbers or passwords in "persistent" cookies, and cookies in themselves, do not contain enough information to identify you. You will only become personally identifiable in relation to your browsing habits after you have formally provided us with your personal data for the purposes outlined in Section 1.2 above.
  6. In addition to using cookies, we might also use GIFs and other web tools, such as Google Analytics, to collect information about your browsing activities whilst on our site. In this respect the information that is provided is similar to the information supplied by cookies, and we use it for the same purposes.

  8. Some of our advertisers may also use cookies, GIFs, or other web tools that are set by other people such as advertising agencies, or the businesses to which the advertisements relate. We do not have access to any information that might be collected in this way, and, if you are concerned, you should contact the advertiser for more information.
