WHAT ARE "COOKIES" AND HOW DO WE USE THEM?
A cookie is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. Cookies allow us to tailor the website to match your interests and preferences better and understand who has visited which pages and advertisements, to determine how frequently particular pages are visited and to determine the most popular areas of our website. Depending on the type of cookie we use, cookies also allow us to make our website more user friendly, for example, permanent cookies allow us to save your log in details so that you do not have to re-enter them every time you visit our website. If you wish, you can usually adjust your browser so that your computer does not accept cookies. If you do this, you may not be able to access certain areas of the website. Alternatively you can adjust your browser to tell you when a website tries to put a cookie on your computer.
Please remember, cookies do not contain confidential information such as your contact details or credit card details. We do not exchange cookies with any third party websites or external data suppliers.
Your browser also generates other information, including your internet protocol address ("IP address"). An IP address is a set of numbers which is assigned to your computer during a browsing session whenever you log on to the internet via your internet service provider or your network (if you access the Internet from, for example, a computer at work). Your IP address is automatically logged by our servers and used to collect traffic data about visitors to our web sites. We do not use your IP address to identify you personally.
We may also collect cookies and IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate non-personalised information to our business contacts, sponsors or advertisers (such as anonymous statistics related to the take up or use of services, or to patterns of browsing).
