Cookie Policy

 

Similar to other commercial websites, our Website uses a technology called "cookies" and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used.

This Cookie Policy, and our separate Terms of Use and our Privacy Policy, make up our Website Terms and Conditions.

COOKIES

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When You visit a website, that site's computer asks Your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies.

Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent on our Website, and the websites visited just before and just after our Website.

HOW WE USE COOKIES

We use the cookies described below. By moving on to the next page, You indicate Your acceptance of our cookies.

We use both first party and third party cookies. That is, both we and third party companies set cookies through this Website.

We use “analytical” cookies which, in conjunction with our web server's log files, allow us to calculate the aggregate number of people visiting our website and which parts of the website are most popular. This helps us gather feedback so that we can improve our Website and better serve our users and clients.

If You log in to our Website and/or the content management system, cookies will be used to store Your session and credentials.

On some of our web pages third parties may also set their own cookies (for example when You click social media sharing buttons or view embedded videos hosted on another website). We cannot access the data stored in any such cookies.

We use ‘session’ cookies which enable You to carry information across pages of the Website and avoid having to re-enter information. Session cookies enable us to compile statistics that help us to understand how the Website is being used and to improve its structure.

We use ‘persistent’ cookies which are cookies that remain in the cookies file of Your browser for longer and help us to recognise You as a unique visitor to the Website, tailoring the content of certain areas of the Website to offer You content that match Your preferred interests.

REFUSING COOKIES

In any case, we inform You that since the cookies are unnecessary to use the Website, You can block cookies by activating the setting on Your browser which allows You to refuse the setting of all or some cookies (see below for further details). Almost all browsers permit You to be warned of the presence of cookies or to reject them automatically. If You reject them, You may continue to use our Website, although You use of some of its services may be limited. However, please note that if You use Your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) You may not be able to access all or parts of our Website.

Cookie name: _utmz
Originating page(s): The first page that the user visits

The parameters in the cookie value string are parsed and sent in the GIF Request (in the utmcc variable). The expiration date for the cookie is set as 6 months into the future.
