Cookies

Introduction

We use cookies on this website for various purposes. A cookie is a data file that a website sends to your browser, which then stores it on the device that you are using to browse the website.

How this site uses cookies

The main cookies used on this website are as follows:

  • Analytical/performance cookies: They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies: These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences.
  • Targeting cookies: These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests.

You can find out how to do this for your particular browser by clicking “help” on your browser’s menu, or by visiting: www.allaboutcookies.org.

Third party cookies

We may allow third-party organisations to set cookies using this website in order to deliver services. If you would like more information about the cookies used by these third parties, as well as details on how to opt-out, please see the table below.

Google Analytics with Display Advertising and Remarketing

We use Google Analytics to give us insights into how you interact with our website and to support display advertising. The advertising includes the display, by third parties such as Google, of adverts across the internet. The adverts include adverts based on your past visits to our website.

Tracking technologies that our marketing emails use

We send emails using a number of different services. Each service uses tracking technologies. We use this information primarily to understand what subjects are interesting to our readers, by monitoring whether our emails are opened and what links are clicked on by our readers. We then use this information to improve the emails that we send to you and the services that we provide.

If you do not wish to allow us to use these technologies, the best way to do this is to not enable images when you view our emails. In other words, only view the plain-text of the email.

If you do not allow us to use tracking technologies, this will stop us being able to take your preferences, as expressed by your email viewing behaviour, to help us improve the emails that we send to you over time. We will not be able to factor-in your email content preferences when creating further emails. We will also not be able to factor in your preferences when considering what improvements to make to our services.
