Tracking technologies we use
We use various technologies to collect and store information, including cookies, pixel tags/beacons, local storage, such as browser web storage or application data caches, databases, and server logs (collectively “Tracking Technologies”) to automatically collect information through the Services. Tracking Technologies are small data files placed on your computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other devices (collectively a “Device”).
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (‘third party cookies’). Session cookies are deleted when you close your browser, persistent cookies are not.
Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (clicking the ‘like’ or ‘follow’ button on a blog post, for example).
We use both session cookies and persistent cookies to identify that you’ve visited our Websites and to tell us how and when you interact with our Websites.
We use the following types of cookies:
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personal information.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
Analytics and performance cookies
These cookies allow us to optimize performance by collecting information on how users interact with our websites, including which pages are visited most, as well as other analytical data. We use these details to improve how our websites function and to understand how users interact with them. These insights allow us both to improve content and to build better features that improve your experience. Our analytics provider is Google Analytics, a Google product that helps site and app owners understand how people engage with a service. Google Analytics uses a set of cookies to collect information and report site usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors to Google. ‘_ga’ is the main cookie used by Google Analytics. ‘_ga’ enables a service to distinguish one user from another and lasts for 2 years. You can opt out of Google’s collection and processing of data generated by your use of the Services by going to tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our sites, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
We do not use third party advertising cookies that allow advertisers to target advertising based on your activity on our Websites.

How we use pixels
“Pixels” or “beacons” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Websites for several purposes, including to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many visitors view our Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike Cookies, which are stored on the user’s hard drive, pixels are typically embedded invisibly on web pages or in an email.
