Home Cookies Policy
Last Updated: September 2019
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work better, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. A cookie often contains a unique number, which can be used to recognise your computer when a user of your computer returns to a website that it visited previously.
Our cookies do not store any information which is capable of directly identifying you (such as your name or address). You have the right to choose whether to accept these cookies. You can exercise this right by amending or setting the controls on your browser to reflect your cookie preferences. However, this may affect the full functionality of our website.
The “Help” menu in the toolbar of most web browsers will tell you how to change your browser’s cookie settings, including how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable cookies altogether.
We have classified our cookies into two broad types – ‘first party cookies’ and ‘third party cookies’:
- First party cookies are cookies that are served directly by the website operator to your computer and are often only used to recognise your computer when it revisits that site.
- Third party cookies are served by a service provider on behalf of the website operator and can be used by the service provider to recognise your computer when it visits other web sites. Third-party cookies are used for a variety of reasons, most commonly used for website analytics. More details are provided in the third party cookie section below.
Our website contains embedded “share” buttons to enable users of the site to easily share articles with their friends through a number of popular networks, for example, Facebook and Twitter. These sites may set a cookie when you are also logged in to their service. We do not control the setting of these cookies, so we suggest you check the third-party website for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.
Further information about cookies and how to control their use is available from All About Cookies and Your Online Choices.
