Website function cookies

Third party functions
Our sites, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties. A common example is an embedded YouTube video. Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Disabling these cookies will likely break the functions offered by these third parties
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 sites. The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.
Site improvement cookies
We regularly test new designs or site features on our websites. We do this by showing slightly different versions of our website to different people and anonymously monitoring how our sites visitors respond to these different versions. Ultimately this helps us to offer you a better website.
Anonymous analytics cookies
We also set anonymous cookies on certain other sites that we advertise on. If you receive one of those cookies, we may then use it to identify you as having visited that site if you later visit our sites. We can then target our advertising based on this information.
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 offer special offers etc to encourage you to come back to our sites. 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 advertising cookies at any time as explained above.
