A cookie is a small piece of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. Cookies collect information about your use of our websites, including things like your connection speed, details of your operating system, the time and duration of your visit and your IP address. We use this information to identify you when you visit the websites and to improve your browsing experience. We will not attempt to personally identify you from your IP address or other information stored on the cookies we use unless required to do so as a matter of law or regulation or in order to protect our or our other customer’s rights. Cookies fall under two main headings, first party cookies and third party cookies.
A First Party Cookie is set by the domain, such as the computer you are using to access the internet, or the specific website that you have visited. We use the two main types of cookies, persistent and session cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your device after you have visited our website. These cookies will help us identify you as a unique visitor to our website by storing a randomly generated number. A session cookie is temporary and only exists for the period you access the website for (or until the browser is closed after visiting our website). This particular type of cookie assists us by helping our website remember your selections and choices whilst visiting our website and therefore avoids you having to re-enter information. This type of cookie does not contain personal information and cannot be used to identify you.
We use either of those two types of cookie for the following purposes:
You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies (such as restricting third party cookies for instance). However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of the Site and the functionality of the site may be impaired. Except for essential cookies, all cookies will only be retained for a commercially reasonable period of time.
Most browsers allow to clear cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Therefore, to remove cookies we encourage you to follow the instructions on the official pages of the various browsers.
Nevertheless, if you block or erase cookies, it may not be possible to reset previously specified preferences or customised settings, and our capacity to customize the user experience will be limited.
