Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

Third party cookies

DoubleClick

We serve our advertising banners via DoubleClick, a Google company. DoubleClick use cookies to make advertising more relevant to users and to help publishers and advertisers achieve their goals. Cookies let us build features that prevent the same ad from showing over and over again and enable advertisers to tell powerful stories across multiple page views.

Audience Science

The content of these advertisements is influenced by your interactions with the Website such as the pages you view, searches you conduct and offers you show an interest in.

Cookies from advertisers

From time to time advertisers on our site might use cookies to track various things like how many times you have seen an ad, whether you have clicked on an ad before, etc. This differs from campaign to campaign and cannot be specified on a page like this. We also use cookies to enable us to target advertising or promotions for our own products that your engagement with our site suggests would be relevant to you.
