Legal notice

Our website uses cookies to enable us to provide a good user experience to our website visitors and to enable certain functionality on our website. If you are happy with this, please continue to use our website as normal, or find out how to manage cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages and they can be divided into four different categories of cookies based on their use:

  • Category 1: Strictly necessary cookies - (used by this site: Yes)
  • Category 2: Performance cookies - (used by this site: Yes)
  • Category 3: Functionality cookies - (used by this site: Yes)
  • Category 4: Targeting cookies or advertising cookies - (used by this site: No)

Category 1: Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.

Category 2: Performance cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

Category 3: Functionality cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Category 4: Targeting cookies or advertising cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
