A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.
When you visit our websites (the "Websites"), you may provide us with two types of information: (i) Personal Information - which you knowingly choose to disclose, that is collected on an individual basis; and (ii) Website Use Information which is collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse the Websites, and is used as set out in this Cookies Policy.
You can surf the Websites anonymously and access some information without revealing your identity. However, in order to provide a better service, we use "cookies" to monitor your visits to our Websites, which make it easier for you to log on during future visits. A cookie is a small text file that our Websites store on your web browser and can later retrieve. These allow us to distinguish you from other users of the Websites, however this information does not allow us to identify you personally and you remain anonymous unless you have otherwise provided us with Personal Information.
Some of the cookies we use are essential for parts of the Websites to operate, for example to remember your user session, register an account, log into the system and use the system. Others help us to provide you with a better browsing experience, for example by remembering when you have logged in and what your display preferences are. We also use 'analytical' cookies (including Google Analytics) which allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to our Websites and see how visitors move around the Websites. This helps us to improve the way our Websites work, for example, by ensuring that visitors can easily find what they need, and by telling us what features of the Websites are most popular. A list of the cookies that the Websites use, and their function, is below.
If you choose not to delete and/or block cookies from the Websites, and continue to use the Websites, you are thereby consenting to our use of such cookies.
