How we use cookies

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. Please note, however, that this may prevent you from taking full advantage of our website as some parts of the website may not function properly if you have declined cookies.


Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google, Inc. that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualise and personalise the ads of its own advertising network.

You can disable the availability of your activity on the service to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. The add-on prevents Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visitor activity.
