INFORMATION ABOUT OUR USE OF COOKIES

Our website uses cookies and other software frameworks to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a better experience when you browse our website or use our apps, and also allows us to improve our service.

A cookie is a small software file that we download to, and store on, your device (if you agree). Software frameworks are used in our mobile apps and are necessary to use the app - you cannot opt in or out of using these.

We use the following cookies:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies:These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Analytical/Performance Cookies:They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality Cookies:These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting Cookies:These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
