What are cookies?

When you take your journey through our website, we may store some information on your computer in the form of a helpful file known as a “cookie”. This is a common method used by almost every website you visit, and many websites will not function at all without the use of cookies (or other similar technologies, such as “web beacons”). To find out more about cookies in general, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

Don’t worry, cookies are not viruses and will not harm your computer, and we do not use them to store personally identifiable information. We do, however, use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of our website. For example, they can help us to identify and resolve errors and other problems that affect your experience of using our site.

How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

We believe it is important to be clear about any cookies that are being set, and why, so we have provided the tables below to explain this to you.

You will not necessarily see all of the cookies referenced below stored on your machine after visiting our site. Some will depend on how you got here and the features and products that you looked at during your visit.

Please be aware that although we audit the types of cookies that are used on our site, it is possible that the services we use may make changes to their cookie names and purposes.

Google uses cookies to help businesses that buy ads from Google determine how many people who click their ads end up purchasing their products. The conversion tracking cookie is set on your browser only when you click an ad delivered by Google where the advertiser has opted in to conversion tracking. These cookies expire within 30 days and do not contain information that can identify you personally. If this cookie has not yet expired when you visit certain pages of the advertiser’s website, Google and the advertiser will be able to tell that you clicked the ad and proceeded to that page. Each advertiser gets a different cookie, so no cookie can be tracked across advertiser websites.Learn more here
