Cookies and other tracking technologies

When you visit one of our websites, we may use “cookies” to provide you with better access to tailored information and services. Cookies are small files of data that record information about your visit to a website or application. We also use other tracking technologies, similar to cookies, to monitor how you use our websites. The information provided is aggregated and we do not attempt to identify individual users or their browsing activities.

Some cookies and technology are necessary for our websites to function. These include:

  • Essential cookies: Some cookies are necessary for the core functionality of sites. Our websites cannot function properly without these.
  • Analytical cookies: These help us study user behaviour, mostly to see if site users can find what they are looking for and can act on it. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and see how they move around our website.
  • Facebook cookies: These cookies may be used to collect information about how our advertising is performing. When you are logged into your Facebook account while visiting our website, Facebook may receive your information or activity on our website. You can update your preferences on this at any time.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is an online service to track and report website traffic. Google can use the data it collects to track and monitor the use of our online services. This data is also shared with other Google services (such as its search engine) where it may be used to personalise advertising to match your online profile.

You can choose not to be involved with Google Analytics by installing a small piece of software on your browser. This software prevents your online activity data being shared with Google Analytics.

More information about Google Analytics’ privacy practices can be found at Google’s privacy policy and terms of use pages.

Google Tag Manager (GTM)

A website “tag” is a small item of online code, similar to a cookie, that can be used to measure web traffic and visitor behaviour across sites. Google Tag Manager reads these JavaScript and HTML tags and pushes the data to our Google Analytics account.

More information about GTM can be found at Google’s privacy policy and terms of use pages.

Google Floodlight

Floodlight is a tracking system for tags that can measure the effectiveness of advertising and marketing campaigns. We use it to track activity on our webpages to see what a user is doing when they visit our site.

Our cookies and tags do not retain personal data and cannot be used for personal identification. You can choose not to receive activity tags for advertising by visiting Google's ad settings page or changing the settings on your browser. More information can be found in Google's privacy policy.

Your use of our services authorises us to process your content through ChatGPT for moderation purposes. Please note that this process is in place to enhance the quality and safety of our service and is conducted in alignment with our commitment to user privacy and data protection.
