Like many websites, we use cookies for a variety of purposes. Some cookies are necessary for the functionality of the site, others log data about your device hardware and your interaction with our site. It is our policy to use cookies and tracking technologies only with the consent of the users of the digital services we provide, except where the use of cookies or tracking technologies is strictly necessary for the use of a service.

On this website we use:

Functional cookies

These cookies are required for basic site functionality and are therefore always enabled. For instance when you exit our cookie banner a cookie is dropped on your device reminding your browser not to re-serve this pop-up box when you later visit this site.

Performance cookies

The information the cookies gather is used to help us customise the website for our users.

Analytics

Where you have permitted the use of performance cookies, we use a web analytics tool provided by Google to collect statistical information about how visitors use and interact with our site.

The Google Analytics cookies collect information about

  • Your IP address

  • Approximately where in the world you are visiting the site from,

Content testing

If we are working on updates to our site, we occasionally display original content to some visitors and alternate content to other visitors to help us assess which version best optimizes user experience. When we do this, we drop a cookie on your device to remember which version of the page you were served.

Surveys

We sometimes ask our visitors to complete optional surveys about our site or our goods and services. When we do this, we drop a cookie to remember not to send you the same survey again if you later re-visit our site.
