By using this Site, you agree to the data collection, use, disclosure and storage practices described in this Privacy Statement.
To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too. By choosing to continue to use this site without changing your cookie setting, we will assume that you are consenting to receiving cookies.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page
to another. Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (from when a user opens the browser window to when they exit the browser) or they can be stored for longer.
• You control your cookies through your browser
• You can delete the stored cookies from your computer by changing your browser settings
Cookies We Use
Our Site uses the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:
Type of cookie Purpose
Essential Cookies – These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our Site and to enable you to use some of its features. For example, they allow you to log in to secure areas of our Site and help the content of the pages you request load quickly. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.
Functionality Cookies – These cookies allow our Site to remember choices you make when you use our Site, such as remembering your language preferences, remembering your login details and remembering the changes you make to other parts of our Site which you can customize. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you visit our Site.
Analytics and Performance Cookies -These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Site and how users use our Site. The information gathered does not identify any individual visitor. The information is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It includes the number of visitors to our Site, the websites that referred them to our Site, the pages that they visited on our Site, what time of day they visited our Site, whether they have visited our Site before, and other similar information. We use this information to help operate our Site
more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information and to monitor the level of activity on our Site.
We use Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own cookies. It is only used to improve how our Site works. You can find out more information about Google
Analytics cookies here:

Targeted and advertising cookies – These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us to show advertising which is more likely to be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests. Based on that information, and with our permission, third party advertisers can place cookies to enable them to show adverts which we think will be relevant to your interests while you are on third party websites.
Social Media Cookies – These cookies are used when you share information using a social media-sharing button or “like” button on our Site or you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this.
Tags – We may use action tags (which are also known as pixel tags, web beacons and clear GIFs) to help us identify and track the performance of web pages on the Site, allowing us to measure the performance and quality of the Site and to manage Site content. In addition, we may use action tags in emails. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of marketing campaigns by showing, for example, how many emails have been opened. Unlike cookies, which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, tags are embedded invisibly on webpages. The information we collect using tags is not linked to our users’ personal information.
Do Not Track Signals – Some Internet browsers may be configured to send “Do Not Track” signals to the online services that you visit. We currently do not respond to Do Not Track signals. To find out more about “Do Not Track,” please visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
