Cookie Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains how we collect, process, and store your information.  This policy explains how we use cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device.  The cookie allows the website to remember your actions or preferences either for a single session or for repeat visits, improving your browsing experience.  Cookies do not access information stored on your computer or any personal information (e.g. name, address, email address or telephone number).

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to analyse web traffic, to learn how users interact with our content and to improve your experience when visiting our website.  For example, some cookies remember your language or preferences so that you do not have to repeatedly select them when you visit our website again.  Other cookies inform us which features are most popular with our users and which ones might need improvement.

What are the different types of cookies?

Different categories of cookies are used for different purposes:  some are necessary for technical or security reasons, some personalise and improve the experience for visitors, some monitor website traffic, statistics and performance, and some enable the display of relevant advertising from selected third parties such as Google and Facebook.

How long do cookies stay in my browser?

Some cookies may be set when a webpage is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action – for example, clicking “like” or “follow” on a post.  The length of time a cookie persists depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie.  Session cookies will only stay in your browser until you stop browsing.  Persistent cookies stay in your browser until they expire or are deleted.
