1 What are Cookies and similar tools?

1.1 Cookies

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

Cookies may serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our Website is performing or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you. Certain cookies contain personal information, for example, if you click to “save login” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our Website or a user’s general location.

1.2 Pixel Tags

A pixel tag (also referred to as a web beacon or a tracking bug) is an often-transparent graphic image, usually no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel that is placed on a website or in an email and that is used to monitor your behaviour when visiting a website or sending/receiving an email. Pixel tags can be used for many purposes, including site usage analytics, advertising, auditing and reporting and content and advertising personalization.

1.3 JavaScript

JavaScript may be used to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, time spent on certain pages, user time zones, page interaction information and methods used to browse away from a webpage.

1.4 Tracking Links

A tracking link or a tracking URL is a specific web address link used to monitor certain elements when a link is clicked on, for example, how users get to our Website.

2 What sort of cookies and similar tools do we use?

Generally, our cookies and similar tools perform up to three different functions:

· Essential cookies and similar tools

Some cookies and similar tools are essential for the operation of our Website. For example, some cookies and similar tools allow us to identify registered users and ensure they can or cannot access restricted pages. If a user opts to disable these cookies and similar tools, the user will not be able to access all of the content that the status of their account entitles them to.

· Performance Cookies and similar tools

We may utilise cookies and similar tools to analyse how you use our Website to record your visits to our Website and the pages you have visited and to record the links you have followed. Among other aims, this allows us to customise our offering to recurring visitors and to optimise navigational paths.

· Settings Cookies and similar tools

We use settings cookies and similar tools to allow us to remember certain choices you have made. For example, you can be automatically redirected to the language in which you last browsed, automatically logged in when your website session expires or schedules can be displayed in the time zone previously reported by your browser.

3 Does anyone else use cookies and similar tools on

Please note that third parties with whom we may work with and/or who may have a presence on our Website (including, for example, users of our forum, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services (e.g. Google Analytics)) may also use cookies and similar tools over which we have no control. These cookies and similar tools are likely to fall into the categories mentioned above.

4 Can a website user block cookies?

As explained above, cookies and similar tools help you to get the most out of our Website. However, if you do wish to disable our cookies then please follow the instructions in your browser and/or computer.
