Cookie Policy

We believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. It may look technical but it is designed to give you confidence about how we use your data and keep it safe.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user's computer. They, and similar technologies enable you to be remembered when using that computer or device to interact with websites and online services and can be used to manage a range of features and content as well as storing searches and presenting personalised content.

Why do we use cookies?

They are necessary for the performance of a contract with you, or because using them is in our legitimate interests (where we have considered that these are not overridden by your rights), and, in some cases, where required by law, where you have consented to their use.

Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this Policy.

What type of cookies do we use?

We use cookies and/or other similar technologies such as tracking GIFs (Graphics Interchange Format), either alone or in combination with each other to create a unique device ID.
