Cookies and other activity tracking technologies

When you visit this Website, we may set and access cookies on your computer. A cookie is a piece of text which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree (or your browser agrees automatically if you have set it up in that way), your browser adds that text in a small file. With a cookie a website can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. For example, when you visit an electronic store, a cookie makes it easier to shop, by allowing you to place things into a shopping basket; the basket itself is not a cookie; the cookie is placed on your hard drive and keeps track of your basket versus others in use at the same time. Some of these cookies are set by 3rd party services (for example Google Analytics) on your computer, and those cookies may gather information from your activities on our Websites and 3rd party websites. 3rd party cookies are subject to their own privacy policies.

If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by us, or indeed any other website, or if you wish to receive notification of cookie placement requests or decline cookies completely, you can do this through your browser settings. The Help function within your browser should tell you how. Please be aware that declining or denying cookies may prevent you from being able to use the website to its highest capability.

We may collect your IP address, details of your browser or operating system in order to monitor the performance of our website; protect your security; protect the security of our website and prevent mis-use; serve you geographically relevant content; and/or improve your experience of our website.

This information will only be stored with personal information if you decided to register with us.

We know that some people may have concerns about the use of cookies and other activity tracking technologies, but we believe that the benefit that you and we gain from their proper use makes them worthwhile.

We use technologies that are provided by Google and Facebook including "Continue with Facebook" and Google Analytics. Although we have made every effort in this Privacy Policy to explain what data of yours will be collected and processed by Google and Facebook when you use our website, we recommend that you review their privacy policies to ensure you are aware of how they may use your data.
