Cookies are small pieces of information created by a website and saved by your web browser. Cookies are stored on your computer hard-drive, tablet or mobile device, either temporarily for the duration of that website session only or stored on your device so that they can be activated next time you visit our website.
Some cookies are essential for the running of our website. Without these cookies, parts of our website would not function properly. Cookies also allow us to recognize you and record your online preferences. For example, if your website login details are stored in a cookie, it saves you from typing in the same information again when accessing our service next time.
By keeping track of your user history on our website, it helps us evaluate how you use our website and identify how we can enhance it further to meet your needs and improve the experience for you in the future.
Our cookies do not track where you have been on the web but remember you have visited our website. They gather data on how you use our site and monitor that information to establish which pages are most useful and enable us to refine them to make them more relevant to you. These analytical performance cookies are only used for statistical purposes to monitor performance of our website and identify the most popular pages. This information is anonymous and just allows us to analyse overall patterns of user behavior and use it to improve our website and enhance your personal user experience.
Typically, most default settings in your web browser automatically accept some cookies. These are the cookies that are created by the website you are visiting and are necessary to keep track of your personal preferences and details of your current session. You can actively choose to accept or decline other cookies, such as those created by a website from a third-party advertiser.
A Web browser can be set so that only essential or functional cookies are maintained and those from third parties are blocked. If you prefer, you can also choose to delete and prevent all cookies from being stored in your computer, but that can severely limit the functionality of some websites. For example, you may not be able to register, log in or purchase products online. To change your cookie settings, look for the cookie options in your browser in the ‘Options’ or ‘Preferences’ menu.
