  1. Introduction
    1. Our website uses cookies.
    2. We will ask you to consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy when you first visit our website.
  2. About Cookies
    1. A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.
    2. Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
    3. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.
    4. Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.
  3. Our Cookies
    1. We use both session and persistent cookies on our website.
    2. The purposes for which they are used, are to recognise a computer when a user visits the website, improve the website's usability, analyse the use of the website, personalise the website for each user, target advertisements which may be of particular interest to specific users.
  4. Analytics cookies
    1. We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website.
    2. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies.
    3. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of our website.
    4. Google Analytics privacy policy is available here.
  5. Third Party Cookies
    1. Our website also uses third party cookies.
    2. We publish Google AdSense advertisements on our website. To determine your interests, Google will track your behaviour on our website and on other websites across the web using the DoubleClick cookie. This behaviour tracking allows Google to tailor the advertisements you see on other websites to reflect your interests (we do not publish interest-based advertisements on this website).

      You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser by visiting here.

      You can also opt out of the AdSense partner network cookie using those settings or using the NAI's (Network Advertising Initiative's) multi-cookie opt-out mechanism here. However, these opt-out mechanisms themselves use cookies, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained. To ensure that an opt-out is maintained in respect of a particular browser, you may wish to consider using the Google browser plug-in available here.
