Cookies are small pieces of code that are stored on your computer. We use a combination of cookies to help us provide you with a personalised service, and also to help make our websites, products and services better for you. The cookies that we use on our websites can be split into four categories:
These are cookies which are needed for our websites, products or services to function properly, for example, these cookies allow you to access secure areas of our website or to remember what you have put into your Online store purchase basket.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website, products and services, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don't collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. We only use these cookies to improve how our website, product and services work.
These cookies allow our websites, products and services to remember choices you make (such as your user name, company name, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for. The information these cookies collect is anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operators' permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
