How we deploy cookies

Cookies are small packets of information stored by your web browser when you visit certain websites, including our website.

Cookies are generally used by websites to improve your user experience by enabling that website to “remember” you, either strictly for the duration of your visit (using a “session” cookie which is erased when you close your browser) or for repeat visits (using a “permanent” cookie).

We do not use cookies to store any personally identifiable information about you.

Our site uses the following types of cookies:

Strictly necessary cookies
We deploy “First Party” cookies to help us to identify how users navigate to and around our website. These cookies also enable some of the features within the site that may be beneficial to you (for example, language preferences, or print page features). This helps us deliver an effective online service to you.

Performance cookies
We may also use cookies issued by third parties (“Third Party” cookies) to track the websites you visited or search terms you used immediately prior to visiting this site. “Third Party” cookies also collect information about how visitors use the site. We use Google Analytics for this purpose.

Google Analytics uses its own cookies. These cookies don’t collect information that identify a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. The information is only used to improve how the site works. You can avoid the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of our site by downloading the Browser Plugin.

Social Media Cookies
These cookies are used when you share information using a social media sharing button or “like” button on our site. They’re also used when you link your account or engage with our content on or through a social networking site such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google+. The social network will record that you have done this, and this information may be linked to targeting / advertising activities.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our sites to remember choices you make (such as user name, or region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of the webpage that you can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

If you don’t want to receive cookies
You can alter your browser settings. The procedure for doing so varies from one browser application to another. If you wish to reject cookies from our site, but wish to accept those from other sites, you may choose the option in your browser settings to receive a notice before a cookie is stored on your device. Please consult the “Help” section of your browser for more information.

Information sharing and disclosure

We do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party. We may disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process.

This may happen:

  • in response to a court order or a subpoena
  • in response to a law enforcement agency’s request
  • where we believe it is necessary to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, and as otherwise required by law

Our agents and contractors may have access to personally identifiable information to help carry out the services they are performing for us.
