Cookies and other similar tracking technologies are small text files placed on your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you use our website or app (together, the “Site”) or interact with an electronic message such as email. Cookies allow a website or app to recognise a particular device.


We use cookies and other similar tracking technologies on our Site and in our marketing emails. These help us recognise you and your device and store some information about your preferences or past actions.

For example, we may monitor how many times you visit our Site, which pages you go to, traffic data, area location data and the originating domain name of your internet service provider. This information helps us to build a profile of our users. Some of this data will be aggregated or statistical, which means that we will not be able to identify you individually.

Cookies serve many functions, but in general we use cookies to:

  • recognise you whenever you visit our Site
  • carry out research and statistical analysis to help improve our content and services and to help us better understand our users’ requirements
  • target our marketing and advertising campaigns and those of our affiliates more effectively by providing interest-based advertisements that are personalised to your interests
  • make your online experience more efficient and enjoyable.


The cookies we may place on your device fall into the following categories:

  • Strictly necessary cookies—these cookies are essential for you to be able to navigate our Site and use its features. Without these cookies, the Site features and services you have asked for could not be provided.
  • Performance cookies—these cookies collect information about how you use our Site, e.g. which pages you go to most often. These cookies do not collect personally identifiable information about you. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and anonymous, and is only used to improve how our Site works.
  • Functionality cookies—these cookies allow our Site to remember the choices you make (such as your username, language, last action and search preferences) and provide enhanced, more personal features. The information collected by these cookies is anonymous and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
  • Targeting cookies—also known as advertising cookies, these cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement on our Site and help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our Site operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a site or app and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.
