What do we mean by website tracking and cookies?

What are cookies and tracking technologies?

Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer or device when you visit a website or app. HTML Web Storage is similar to cookies but with a greatly enhanced capacity.

 

Why do we use cookies and other tracking?

To do a few different things:

  • to keep you signed in, even on a different device

  • to remember information about you, so you don't have to give it to us again and again.

  • to help us understand how people are using our websites, so we can make them better

  • to help us personalise your browsing experience by remembering your preferences and settings.

  • to link the data recorded from our website cookies to your personal information if you make an enquiry from our website.

  • to help deliver targeted advertising to other websites

  • to find out if our emails have been read and if you find them useful

  • to deliver services from 3rd Parties, for example, Google Maps

  • to store data locally to improve the speed of our websites.

What cookies do you use?

Some cookies are required to make our website function properly and it would not work properly without them. We also use functional, performance and advertising cookies to make your experience more relevant and enjoyable. For further information please refer to our Cookie Policy.

Be aware there are some "third-party cookies" out there from other companies that might track how you use different websites, including ours. For instance, you may receive a social media company’s cookie when you use an option to share something. We don't control these cookies, so we suggest you check the third-party websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.

How long do cookies last?

Some are erased when you close the browser on your website or app. Others stay longer, sometimes forever, and are saved onto your device so that they’re there when you come back.

How do I control my cookies and tracking?

You can choose to restrict or block cookies through your browser settings at any time, for more information on how to do this and cookies in general visit https://www.aboutcookies.org.

Be aware that stopping cookies might mean some of the functions on our website become unavailable or might not work properly for you.

Another way to control some tracking is in the settings on your device.

How do we use your personal information?

We are required to have a legal basis for processing your personal information. These are the most commonly:

  • to perform or take steps to enter a contract with you

  • to comply with a legal obligation

  • where we have your explicit consent, freely given

  • where it is necessary for our legitimate interests, and these are not overridden by your rights and interests

  • When you make an enquiry, we will use the personal information we hold about you to take steps towards entering into a contract with you such as to:

  • follow up on your enquiry and provide further information you have requested

  • we will make you aware of new product offerings, offers, events, promotions and other marketing information based on your consent
