Cookie Policy

We use a technology called ‘cookies’ as part of a normal business procedure. Cookies are small text files that are created by a web server and stored on your computer when you visit a website. They are not executable code and can only be read by (you and) the website that created them. You can view and edit the cookies on your computer like any other text file using a text editor (the contents are usually just strings of unique identifiers and date/timestamps). The website that created the cookie can read the contents when you are at their website. Cookies are widely used across the internet: you may have hundreds of cookies on your computer at any one time. Each browser has its own set of cookies so, if you run multiple browsers, you will have multiple sets of cookies on your computer. We use cookies to make a user’s experience of our website more efficient and to improve your browsing experience. We also use Google Analytics, which are third-party cookies that allow us to analyze how users use our website, for example, by counting the number of visitors to the website and calculating the average number of pages a user views. The data we obtain from Google Analytics is valuable in helping us to improve the quality and content of the website. If at any time you wish to disable our cookies you may do so through the settings on your browser. These settings allow you to specify which cookies you will accept by type and often by specific websites using an exception list. For example, you can block all cookies and then list the websites from which you will accept cookies.

Updates to this Privacy Policy

We may make changes to this Policy from time to time in order to reflect any changes to the way in which we process your personal data or changes in applicable law or regulatory requirements.  We encourage you to review this Policy periodically to be informed about how we use your personal data.
