Types of cookies used on this website
We use different types of cookies. Although they mainly work in the same way, there are some minor differences.
– Strictly necessary cookies – some of the cookies on our website are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features.
– Performance cookies – some of the cookies on our website collect information about how visitors use the website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from webpages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated, and therefore anonymous, and is only used to improve how our website works.
– Functionality cookies – these cookies allow our website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced, more personal features.
– Third party cookies – our website also uses ‘google analytics’ cookies. This web analytics service provided by Google inc helps us to analyse how users use our website. It counts the number of visitors and tells us about their browsing behaviour and patterns, such as typical length of stay on our website or the average number of pages a user views.
By using our website you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device. If you want to restrict or block any of the above cookies, you should do this through the settings for each web browser you use and on each device you use to access the internet. Please be aware that some of areas of our website may not function if your web browser does not accept cookies. However, you can allow cookies from specific websites by making them “trusted websites” in your browser. The “Help” function within your browser should tell you how to make these changes.
