  1. How we use cookies

Each of Our Websites use some or all of the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies – these are cookies that are required for the operation of Our Websites. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of Our Websites, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
  • Analytical/performance cookies – they allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around Our Websites when they are using them. They help us to improve the way each of Our Websites works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies – these are used to recognise you when you return to one of Our Websites. They enable us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies – these cookies record your visit to Our Websites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make Our Websites and the advertising displayed on them more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.
