WHAT ARE COOKIES?
We use various cookies on this Website. These range from long-term cookies (to remember you or your preferences) to short-term or session based cookies that “expire” when you close your browser window.
We may also use tracking tools to provide us with information about customer behaviour, which we use to improve the Website and for internal reports.
We may use third party cookies to compile and store anonymous statistics about browsing patterns or site behaviour and build up a demographic profile. This data is collected along with other visitor data to form a collective analytics report. This data is as a main rule not personally identifiable and is only used for reporting/statistical purposes.
We may also use a number of social media tools, both third party and custom-built, to enhance visitor interaction (such as “Like”, “Share” or “Tweet”) on our site. If you already use these platforms, third party cookies may be set through our website and may be linked to your account with that third party provider. Data may then be used by them to customise certain adverts or functionality on their site(s) based on your usage of their service from this site. Please note that these parties use your personal data in accordance with the privacy and cookies policies that apply to their services.
THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
To the extent the cookies are set by a third party, for example a social media service provider, the relevant third party may have access to the cookies and is the controller for the information collected by the use of these cookies.
The information obtained by the permanent or semi-permanent cookies is generally retained for 1-2 years, whereas the session cookies are deleted when you shut down your browser.
