This Notice describes how we use cookies and similar technologies on our website, and how you can manage them. By consenting to this cookie notice, you agree that we can distinguish you from other users of our website for the purposes set out below. This helps us provide you with a good user experience, tailored content, and interest-based adverts. For example, we can recognise and remember important information that will make it more comfortable for you to browse our website such as preferred settings.


A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store via your browser on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device. There are three main types of cookies:

  • Session cookies: specific to a particular visit and limited to sending session identifiers (random numbers generated by the server) so you don’t have to re-enter information when you navigate to a new page or check out. Session cookies are not permanently stored on your device and are deleted when the browser closes;
  • Persistent cookies: record information about your preferences and are stored in your browser cache or mobile device;
  • Third-party cookies: placed by someone other than us, with our permission, which may gather data across multiple websites or sessions.

We may also automatically collect and store certain information about your interaction with our Website including IP address, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamps, and related data.

In addition to cookies, we use some other similar technologies as follows:

  • Web Beacons: small graphic images included on our website or emails or those of third parties to provide analytics information
  • Social widgets: buttons or icons provided by third-party social media networks that may collect browsing data and will be received by the third party and are controlled by the third party
  • SDKs: these are mobile application third-party software development kits used in our apps. They enable us to collect information about app activity and the device it runs on.
  • Local shared objects: these are sometimes called flash cookies and can be stored on your browser. They are used to maintain preferences and usage records.

Log files - Our web server maintains a history of page requests. This includes information about a user's IP address, request date and time, page requested, HTTP code, bytes served, user agent, and referrer. None of this is linked to personally identifiable information.
