How do we use cookies?

Like most people, we are fed up with intrusive messages about cookies disrupting our experience of websites. Wherever possible we therefore try to avoid the use of cookies and make no attempt to use these to track usage of our website or gather marketing information. Where unavoidable we only use cookies in a range of ways to improve your experience on our website, including:

  • Keeping you signed in
  • Helping you navigate our website
  • Enabling the functionality of specific web components.

What types of cookies do we use?

There are several different types of cookies.

On our website we strive to use only those which deliver specific functionality so that we can recognise you on our website and remember any preferences that you specifically select. These could include what language you prefer and location you are in. A mix of first-party and third-party cookies may be used.

We avoid the use of advertising cookies which collect information about your visit to our website, the content you viewed, or the links you followed. We acknowledge, however, that some web components may retain information about your browser, device, and your IP address although we make no attempt to interpret such information and never share such data with third parties for advertising purposes.
