3 What cookies do we use on our website?
We use the following different categories of cookie on our website: Strictly necessary cookies; Performance cookies; Functionality cookies; Targeting or advertising cookies. By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.
We collect statistical information which is used for making the site faster and easier to use. Information from your visit is combined with the data from all site visitors and presented as statistical information on overall site use. To do this, we use “cookies” and other tracking technologies.
We uses “session” cookies. Session cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used, for example, to improve navigation on this site, and to collect aggregated statistical information.
We may use “persistent” cookies: Persistent cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customising the website based on your preferences on an ongoing basis. The server only knows that an unidentified visitor with your cookies has returned to the website and not any personally identifiable information.
We may use “web beacons” (also known as internet tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, anonymous identifiers and invisible GIFs): A web beacon is a tiny graphic on a web page or in an email message that is used to track pages viewed or messages opened. Web beacons tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. Web beacons may be placed on online advertisements that bring people to us and on different pages of the website. Web beacons provide us with information on how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted.
We uses both First Party and Third Party web beacons and cookies. Third Party web beacons and cookies are used for the purpose of marketing this website to people that may find benefit from the services included on the website.
