These are necessary for the website or application to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser or mobile device to block, but some parts of the site will not then work. These services do not store any personally identifiable information.
This allows us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information collected is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow this service we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
This enables the website or application to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personably identifiable information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow, you will still see advertisements but they will be less targeted to your likes.
These are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site or application to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser or device across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visitor applications. If you do not allow, you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.
Targeted advertising is advertising that is personalized for you based on cookies that track your interests and behavior on websites. Several advertising industry associations offer consumers the ability to opt-out from online targeted advertising conducted by all of their member advertisers.
If you would like to find out more information, please visit the websites listed below and follow the opt-out instructions there if you wish to opt-out:
