Site improvement cookies
We regularly test new designs or site features on our site. We do this by showing slightly different versions of our website to different people and anonymously monitoring how our site visitors respond to these different versions. Ultimately this helps us to offer you a better website.
Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookie
Cookies are widely used in online advertising. We only work with advertising partners who work to accepted privacy standards such as http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/iab-good-practice-principles.
You can learn more about online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com . You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices although we would prefer that you didn’t as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you any longer.
You may notice that sometimes after visiting a site you see adverts from the site you visited. This is because advertisers, including ourselves pay for these adverts. The technology to do this is made possible by cookies and as such we may place a so called “remarketing cookie” during your visit. We use these adverts to offer special offers etc to encourage you to come back to our site. We also use the cookies to communicate relevant messages via email, if you are subscribed to one of our mailing lists. You can opt out of these cookies at anytime as explained next.
Turning cookies off
You can switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Each browser is different, but this can often be found in the Privacy & Security Settings.
Please note, switching off cookies will limit the functionality of our and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.
It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so-called ‘spyware’. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser, you may find that anti-spyware software achieves your desired objective by automatically deleting any cookies considered to be invasive.
