A cookie is a piece of information that is stored on your device by your web browser. Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but usually you can alter the settings of your browser to prevent automatic acceptance. If you choose not to receive cookies, you may not be able to use certain features of our Site.
- To adapt the site as you use it, in order to improve your user experience – for example, to remember your preferences. No personally identifiable information is stored.
- To carry out analysis of site traffic. This uses a first party cookie provided by Google Analytics. This cookie uses a randomly generated unique user ID. No personally identifiable information is stored.
- To collect remarketing lists and reporting on demographics and interests. We use the Google Analytics ('ga') cookie and the Google Adwords cookie to enable this. No personally identifiable information is stored. Google provides a browser add-on that can be used to opt out of any of these features.
