Cookies:

Cookies are small pieces of information that can be stored on your hard drive (persistent cookies) or computer memory (session cookies). Cookies help us understand which parts of our website are most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there.

We use cookies to learn how we can make our website more useful and interesting for you. We use session cookies, which are removed from your computer once you leave our website. These are used to remember specific information about your preferences for the duration of your session. When you log out or close your browser the session, these cookies are deleted.

We also use persistent cookies to personalise the user experience and for tracking traffic patterns to and from this website. For more information on the tracking we use, refer to the following website tracking and measurement section.



Website tracking and measurement:

We use third party website trackers, such as Google or DoubleClick, to collect information on how you use our website. The services are used to aggregate website statistics anonymously, such as number of page views, the number of unique visitors, time spent on our site, and to determine advertising effectiveness.

Online Advertising:

We use third party vendors, such as Google, to display advertising on websites across the internet. These third party vendors may also use cookies to anonymously track and target advertising based on your browsing behavior and past visits.

We use remarketing or similar audiences and demographics and interest reporting to gather information for online advertising which allow us to reach people who have previously visited our website, and to match the right people with the right message. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network, or via third party vendors who show our ads across the internet.

Keeping your data secure:

We keep your information safe by storing it securely in encrypted files in our data centre and only allowing certain staff access to it who require it for their job.

Your rights to access and change information:

You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information we hold about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong.
