Cookies and Similar Technologies

What are cookies?

‘Cookies’ are small data files stored locally on your computer or mobile device by a website. Our Sites may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser or mobile application) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them manually) to provide you w

Cookies we use

Our Sites use the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:

ith a more personal and interactive experience on our Sites.

We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Sites; and (2) third-party cookies, which are served by service providers or business partners on our Sites, and can be used by such service providers or business partners to recognize your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites.

Type of cookie Purpose
Essential Cookies These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our Sites and to enable you to use some of its features. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided or will not function properly, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.
Functionality Cookies These cookies allow our Sites to remember choices you make when you use our Sites (for example, your chosen language). The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-select your preferences every time you visit our Sites.
Analytics and Performance Cookies These cookies are used to collect information about traffic to our Sites and how users use our Sites. The information gathered may include the types of information described above in the section titled Information automatically collected. We use this information to help operate our Sites more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information, monitor the level of activity on our Sites, and improve the Sites.

We use Google Analytics for this purpose. Google Analytics uses its own cookies. You can find out more information about Google Analytics cookies here and about how Google protects your data here. You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of our Sites by downloading and installing the browser plugin available here.

Social Media Cookies These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing functionality or use the ‘like’ (or similar) buttons on our Sites, or when you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking website such as Facebook or Twitter. The relevant social network will record that you have done this using their own cookies.
Targeted and advertising cookies These cookies track your browsing habits to enable us and third-party advertising networks to deliver ads that may be of interest to you. These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests or browsing behaviors. Based on the cookies that the third-party advertising network sets on our Sites and other sites, advertisers can display advertisements that may be relevant to your interests on our Sites and while you are on third-party websites.

You can choose to disable advertising cookies, as described below, or to opt out of the use of your browsing behavior for purposes of targeted advertising. Users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the Network Advertising Initiative by clicking here or the Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here. European users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising on websites through members of the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance by clicking here, selecting the user’s country, and then clicking ‘Choices’ (or similarly-titled link). Mobile app users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising in mobile apps through participating members of the Digital Advertising Alliance by installing the AppChoices mobile app, available here, and selecting the user’s choices.

Please note that if you choose to opt-out of targeted advertisements, you will still see advertisements on our Sites and elsewhere online but they may not be relevant to you. Even if you do choose to opt out, not all companies that serve online targeted advertising are included in this list, and so you may still receive some cookies and tailored advertisements from companies that are not listed.

Disabling cookies

You can typically remove or reject cookies via your browser settings. In order to do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the ‘settings’, ‘help’, ‘tools’ or ‘edit’ menus). Many browsers are set to accept cookies until you change your settings.

Pixel tags

We may also use ‘pixel tags’ (also known as ‘web beacons’ and ‘clear GIFs’) on our Sites to track the actions of users on our Sites. Unlike cookies which are stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device by a website, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on webpages.

Data Retention

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any of our legal, accounting or reporting obligations.

To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means. We will never retain your personal information for longer than we are allowed under applicable law.
