The types of cookies we use
Different cookies do different jobs. The following are the types of cookies used on our website:
Personalisation cookies help us to identify when someone returns to our website. Based on previous interactions with our website (behaviour) or geographic location, we can predict what a visitor might be looking for and display more relevant content.
Analytics cookies provide us with data which we use to ensure the website is performing at an optimal level. The information collected is generalised data, and does not personally identify website visitors.
3rd party cookies
The 3rd party services we use across our website have their own individual cookie policies, and we recommend that you read their policies. We hold no responsibility for 3rd party cookies.
Site management cookies
Site management cookies play an important role. We use these to issue site-wide alerts or to ensure you only see certain content, such as a reminder, only once.
Session cookies assist with streamlining our website experience. Some of our online forms span multiple pages, and these cookies can assist visitors to avoid re-entering the same information across pages.
Blocking or deleting cookies
We recommend that cookies are enabled when visiting our website. If they are disabled there’s a risk that various web functions will cease to work, and so we cannot guarantee the same website experience. Cookies can be disabled through individual browser settings and preferences.
Cookies and location services
Internet connected devices use an identifier called an ‘IP address’ to communicate. We cannot identify who is using a particular IP address, but it may be possible to tell what geographic region an IP address is likely to be associated with.
If the website is accessed through a mobile device, depending on the device settings, we may be able to determine the approximate location of the mobile device using global positioning system (GPS) information. Check the manufacturer’s instructions for information about how you can manage location based services.
We may use IP addresses or GPS information, together with other information about the device that is used to access the website to provide content that is more relevant to the region where an internet connection is likely to be located. This information does not personally identify website visitors.
