These cookies collect anonymous information on how our customers use the site and the data is merged with other users to enable us to improve how the site operates. We utilise Google Analytics cookies to help us understand how customers and prospects arrive and browse our site and highlight where we can improve areas such as navigation, customer experience and marketing campaigns.

These cookies enable us to provide you with an experience more appropriate with your selections and make the visits more tailored and useful.

Your browser “help” section will normally provide details on how to manage the cookie settings.

How can you manage cookies?
Although your browser may be set up to allow the creation of cookies, you can specify that you be advised before a website puts a cookie on your hard disk, so that you can decide whether to allow or disallow the cookie. Alternatively, you can set your computer not to accept any cookie though please be aware that this will affect the natural operation of our website.
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various cookies from third-parties to report anonymous usage statistics and or provide functionality enhancements. Some examples of third-party cookies that could be present are detailed below, this may not be a full list and there could be other cookies present that are not listed here.
We automatically log generic information about your computer and your computer’s connection to the Internet which we call “session data”. Session data consists of things such as device information, IP address, operating system and browser software information, and the activities conducted by you while on our Website. An IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet, such as our web servers, know where to send data back to the user, such as the pages of the Website the user wishes to view. Session data helps us to analyse such things as what items visitors are likely to click on most, the way visitors are clicking through the Website, how many visitors are surfing to various pages on the Website, how long visitors to the Website are staying and how often they are visiting. It also helps us diagnose problems with our servers. It is possible to determine from an IP address a visitor’s Internet Service provider (ISP) and the approximate geographical location of his or her point of connectivity. We also use session data to help prevent fraud and unauthorised use of our Website.
You can control and or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionality may not work.
We use this to better understand how people are using our website. Google also use it to better understand how people are using their own website. The Google Analytics cookie allows us to recognise when you first visit our website and recognise you if you visit again. It also enables us to recognise the pages you visit, when you visit, how long you visit our website for, the IP address and what site you were looking at before visiting our website (this is known as the referral url).
