Social website cookies

So you can easily “Like” or share our content on the likes of Facebook and Twitter, we have included sharing buttons on our site.

The privacy implications on these will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

Advertising cookies and banner ads

Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies. We only work with advertising partners who work to accepted privacy standards such as Your Online Choices.

You can learn more about online advertising and change your settings at Your Online Choices too. It is worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they will no longer be tailored to you.

Remarketing Cookies

You may notice that sometimes after visiting a site you see increased numbers of 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 promote things like special offers to encourage you to come back to our site. Don’t worry – we are unable to proactively reach out to you as the whole process is entirely anonymised. You can opt out of these cookies at any time as explained above.
