Cookie Policy

We use cookies on our website to provide you with a great experience and to help our website run effectively. By using our website, you agree to our use of cookies.

 

What are cookies?

 

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. They are typically used to keep track of the settings users have selected and actions they have taken on a site.

 

Cookies set by the website owner are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website. The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

 

There are two main kinds of cookies:

  • Session cookies are erased when site visitors close their browsers and are not used to collect information from their computers. They typically store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.

  • Persistent cookies are stored on a site visitors hard drive until they expire (at a set expiration date) or until they are deleted. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about the user, such as web surfing behaviour or user preferences for a specific site.

 

Why do we use cookies?

 

We use cookies on our website to:

  • Provide a great experience to our website visitors.

  • Identify registered users of our website.

  • Monitor and analyse the performance, operation and effectiveness of our website.

  • Ensure our website is secure and safe to use.

 

Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies.

 

How can I control cookies?

 

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. By using our website, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

 

You may set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse non-essential cookies. The means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser. We have included some links to the most common browsers support pages:

If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted.

 

Essential cookies cannot be rejected as they are strictly necessary to provide you with services.
 

How often will we update this Cookie Policy?

 

We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies.
