What Cookies and Similar Technologies Do We Use?
Below we list the different types of cookies and similar technologies that are used on our website.
- Essential: Enable you to navigate our website and to use its services and features. Without these necessary cookies, our website will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like it to and we may not be able to provide our website or certain services or features.
- Preference: Collect information about your choices and preferences and allow us to remember language or other local settings and customise our website accordingly.
- Analytics: Collect information about your use of our website and enable us to improve the way it works.

This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on our website, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information to analyse website traffic, but we do not examine this information for individually identifying information.
