We want to make it as easy as possible for you to understand and control your online privacy. So here is a clear explanation of what cookies are, how we use them, and how you can manage your preferences when you visit our websites.
A cookie is a tiny text file placed on your computer, tablet or mobile phone by websites that you visit. Cookies do lots of useful jobs. They help make websites work smoothly, provide information about how people browse, and make sure any adverts you see are as relevant as possible.
Our websites use three kinds of cookies. Some are strictly necessary for making our website work well. But you can choose to turn all the others on or off below. You can also manage what cookies are stored on your computer directly by . Blocking some types of cookies may mean you can't use all the services or features on our sites.
Third-party cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you're visiting. Some of our pages may also contain content from other sites like YouTube, which may set their own cookies. If you share a link to a page on one of our sites, the platform you share it on (for example, Facebook) may set a cookie on your browser. We have no control over third-party cookies - you can turn them off, but not through us.
Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers which, if enabled, sends a signal to websites requesting that your browsing isn't tracked. Currently there is no industry-wide standard that has been agreed or universally adopted to determine how such signals are handled and for that reason we do not respond to DNT requests. We will review how this feature, and other technologies similar, evolve and then take steps to incorporate as and when appropriate.
Remember that editing your cookie preferences will not remove any existing cookies from your browser. It'll only affect the way cookies are used in future.
Some cookies are essential for the basic functionality of our websites. They let you do things like log in, move from page to page, and use our interactive tools. You can't choose to turn off these cookies. Without them, our website won't work properly and we won't be able to fix any errors.
These cookies help us get feedback so we can improve what we offer. They're needed to run reporting tools that gather information about how people are using our website. You can choose to turn these cookies on or off at any time.
We never show adverts from third parties on our website. However, we do advertise our own products and services, and you may see our adverts around the internet too.
Some cookies tell us where you saw a particular advert and help us limit the number of times you see it.
We link to a number of external websites where you can buy products or services that we feature on our site. When you click on a link, we may earn commission and your activity may be tracked using cookies.
