We also use other forms of technology which serve a similar purpose to cookies and which allow us to monitor and improve our sites and online services. We use these in connection with cookies to help operate our websites and emails and collect information about online activity. When we talk about cookies in this Policy, this term includes these similar technologies.
This policy explains the different types of cookies we use and how you can control them.
1. What cookies do we use and why?
We use five different categories of cookies.
Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential to the operation of our services. Without these cookies, the services in question would not work properly (e.g. you wouldn’t be able to navigate around the site or access certain types of content). These cookies cannot therefore be turned off.
Functional cookies. These cookies provide you with a better browsing experience based on the choices you make. We use these cookies to remember which account you used to sign into our Services, and what choices you make such as the country you visit our website from, language and search parameters. These can then be used to provide you with an experience more appropriate to your selections and to make the visits more tailored and pleasant.
Social media cookies. These cookies are used when you engage with our content on or through a social media site, such as Facebook or Twitter, and they allow us to see if you have visited our site or one of our online services after having visited one of our social media sites. You can control these cookies via your browser settings and possibly via the privacy settings for the applicable social media accounts.
Please visit our Cookie List for more information about the cookies we use.
2. How do I control cookies?
If you are using our content via a web browser, you can change your cookie preferences for all but strictly necessary cookies and withdraw your consent at any time using our Cookie Settings.
You may also set your browser to block all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being set, although our services may not function properly if cookies are disabled. Further information about the procedure to follow in order to disable cookies can be found on your browser provider’s website, or you may wish to refer to allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html for information on commonly used browsers.
Please be aware that if cookies are disabled, not all features of the services may operate as intended.
