What are cookies?
Why do we used Cookies?
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate, and these are referred to as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the user experience on our website. Third parties serve cookies through our website for advertising and analytical purposes.
• Form-related cookies
When you submit data to us through a form, such as those found on contact pages or service pages, cookies may be set to remember your user details for future correspondence.
Third Party Cookies
• This website uses Google Analytics, which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytical software platforms on the Internet. Google Analytics is used to help us understand how our visitors use the website, so we can look at ways in which we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the website, and the pages that you visit. For more information on Google Analytics cookies, please visit the official Google Analytics page.
• From time to time, we will introduce new features and make subtle changes to the way that the website is delivered. When we are still testing new features these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience whilst on the site, whilst also ensuring we understand which optimisations our users appreciate the most.
Turning cookies off
You can choose to manage the cookies we use on our website through your Internet browser settings at any time (such as Chrome, Safari or Firefox). Certain cookies may be set as soon as you visit our website, whereas others may be set once certain actions have been taken on the website, or after a certain period of time spent on the website. Nevertheless, in all cases they can all be turned off through your Internet browser settings. Unfortunately in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to a website. It is recommended that you leave on all cookies if you are not sure whether you need them or not, in case they are used to provide a service that you use within the website.
Other tracking technologies
Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like tracking pixels. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our website or opened an email linking to the website. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functionality.
