Cookies Policy

This policy outlines what cookies and similar tracking technologies our websites use, how we use them, and information on how to opt-out of these cookies if you wish to do so. (Scroll to the bottom to opt-out)

What are cookies?

Cookies and similar tracking technologies, such as tags, scripts, and beacons, are small pieces of code (referred to as cookies hereafter) that are stored on a device (computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc.) and enable a website to "personalize" itself to users by remembering information about the user's visit to the website. We also use cookies within emails we may send.

Cookies are used to collect information, where available, about your device, your IP address, operating system, browser type, and how you have interacted with our websites.

While cookies are used to identify users and devices, they only collect non-personal information such as IP addresses device IDs. If the data cookies collected are ever merged with any other information you have provided us, such as email addresses, these are anonymized so that identification with actual people is impossible.

Why do we use them?

Our websites use cookies to gain insight into the nature of our audience so we can tailor our content accordingly.

What types of cookies do we use?

  • Per-session cookies - We only use these while you are visiting our website and they are deleted when you leave. They remember you as you move between pages.
  • Persistent cookies - These cookies stay on your computer until they expire or are deleted. We set automatic deletion dates so that we don't keep your information for longer than we need to.
  • First and third-party cookies – Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies in basic terms are cookies set by a website visited by the user - the website displayed in the URL window. Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie.

Below is a full list of all the different third-party cookies that we use:
