Our Cookies Policy was last updated on 29 March 2018.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are electronic tags that most websites place on your computer in the process of sending your computer a file, such as a web page. A cookie can tell us when a computer that has previously visited our site returns, and what pages it requests on each of its visits. Cookies help us keep track of how our visitors (or more accurately, their computers) use our site, including such things as the type of browser they use, the frequency of their visits and the pages that are most popular. They can help smooth your travel through our site by keeping track of information that has already been provided by your computer so that you do not need to re-enter it. In no event does the cookie we place on your computer tell us anything personal about you or about your visits to other websites (except those you enter through a link on our site), or your use of the internet in any other way.
There are different types of cookies:
Session cookies last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close your browser. They allow a website to identify that a user is navigating from page to page, supporting website security or basic functionality. They contain no personal information that can be used to identify an individual.
Persistent cookies last after you have closed your browser and allow a website to remember your actions and preferences. This also allows a website to keep you signed in if you select this option on the sign-in form.
FIRST-AND THIRD-PARTY COOKIES
Whether a cookie is a first- or third-party cookie depends on which website the cookie comes from. First-party cookies are those set by or on behalf of the website visited. All other cookies are third-party cookies. We use both first- and third-party cookies.
COOKIES WE USE
As you explore our website, we may automatically gather information on how you use our site to help us develop and improve our site and to provide relevant, helpful information to you. We do not gather information about other third party websites you have visited, but we may collect information about links to other websites that you click on if they appear on our site. Similarly, where you come to our site using a hyperlink at another location on the internet, we may record the location of that hyperlink for our records.
