1. What are cookies?
Cookies are used on our website to collect information about your user preferences, browsing habits and the device you have used to access our website (including the make, model and operating system, IP address, browser type and mobile device identifiers) so that we can:
• provide essential features and functionality on our website;
• help ensure that you get the best from our website by making it as easy and intuitive as possible for you to use; • remember choices you make and recognise you when you return, so you don't have to remind us each time you visit; and
• monitor and analyse website usage and performance so that we can improve how it operates (including in relation to security) and the product selection and services available through it.
3. What cookies are used when you use the Site?
3.1. Strictly necessary cookies These cookies are essential for our website to operate. For example, they enable you to log into secure areas of our website.
3.2. Functionality cookies
These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make when visiting our website and recognise you when you return. For example, functionality cookies allow us to remember information such as your login details if you choose to create an account with us and other customised features. When you first access our websites, we ask you to read our Cookie and Privacy policies and acknowledge the use of the cookies before proceeding to use our websites.
3.3. Analytical/performance cookies We use Google Analytics, a popular website analytics service provided by Google, and other analytical/performance cookies for the purposes of recognising and measuring the number of visitors to our website and analysing interactions with our website, such as items clicked on, web pages viewed and any web pages where users are encountering download error messages from time to time. The analytics service uses this information to compile anonymised reports on website activity, which we use to help improve the way our website works. See here for further information from Google about how Google Analytics works.
To opt-out of cookies provided by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on available here. The add-on will prevent your browser from sending information to Google Analytics. 3.4. Targeting/advertising cookies and social plugins
Our website may also use third parties (including Facebook) and social plugins (e.g., the Facebook “Like” button) to enable you to easily share information with others and help us carry out our advertising and marketing activities. When you visit our websites, these third party operators may be able to place a cookie on your device, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our website and to collect information about your browsing habits, including the web pages you’ve viewed and the links you’ve clicked through. This information is used to make our website more relevant to your interests. It is also used to make advertisements you see online more relevant to you, as well as to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. If you have previously logged into a social media website (e.g., Facebook) before browsing on our websites, the social plugin or cookie allows that social media website to receive information about your visit to particular pages on our website. The social plugin may collect this information for any such visitors who have logged into social networks, whether or not they specifically interact with the plugin on our website (e.g., by clicking “Like” or “Share”). The social plugin may also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our website with other users of their social media website. Targeted/advertising cookies and social plugins also enable us to measure and analyse the overall effectiveness of our advertising and marketing campaigns so that we can improve them in the future.
