Additional information

First-party cookies

We set first-party cookies on behalf of the website you are visiting.

Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies collect and use anonymous information about your visits and interactions with our websites. We use third-party cookies to serve and personalise advertisements for our products and services. They also ensure we implement opt-outs made via the third party.

Necessary cookies

Cookies in this category are necessary for the site to function normally, so cannot be turned off.

Analytics cookies

These cookies are used to help us improve the performance of some or all pages on our website.
For instance, we use Google Analytics to look at how people navigate through our website and use this to make improvements.

Functional cookies

These cookies are used to enable certain functionality on our site such as personalisation.
Disabling may lead to a poorer browsing experience.

Marketing cookies

These cookies will be used to track your preferences and only show adverts relevant to your interests.

Social website cookies

So you can easily ‘Like’ or share our content on social networks (such as Facebook and Twitter) we’ve included sharing buttons on our websites.

These are set by ShareThis, AddThis and Twitter. The privacy implications will vary from social network to social network. They depend on the privacy settings you’ve chosen on these networks.

Anonymous visitor statistics cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics – such as how many people have visited our website, how long they spend on the site and what pages they look at.

We use Google Analytics to provide these statistics, which help us to continuously improve our website. They also tell us, on an anonymous basis, how people reached our websites (for example from a search engine) and whether they’ve visited before.

You can opt out of Google Analytics by using Google’s opt-out tool.

What to do about unwanted cookies

Deleting cookies. Some web browsers allow you to delete cookies. If your browser allows this, you’ll be able to change your settings so that whenever you close your browser, it will delete any cookies that have been put on during that session of browsing.

Refusing cookies. Just remember that if you change your browser settings to refuse all cookies – in other words, websites won’t be able to put them on your device at all – you won’t be able to access your Online Account with us. If you’re worried about ‘spyware’, then rather than refusing all cookies, you may find you can use anti-spyware software to achieve the same goal by automatically deleting cookies it thinks are invasive.

Getting a warning about cookies. You can change your browser settings to warn you before cookies are used (and get the option of using them or not). You can do this by following the instructions in your browser. These are normally in the Help, Tools, or Edit menus.

How to stop unwanted adverts

Opting out of online adverts. To stop getting online interest-based advertisements from Facebook and other participating companies, visit the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance. You’ll need to opt-out separately with each browser you use.
