The cookies used on our websites have been categorized based on the guidelines found in the ICC UK Cookie guide. We use the following categories on our websites and applicable online services:
Category 1 : Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features. These cookies enable services you have specifically asked for, like e-billing or shopping basket.
Category 2 : Performance Cookies
These cookies collect information about how users use the website, for instance, which pages people go to the most. This data may be used to help optimize our websites and make it easier for people to navigate. These cookies are also used to let affiliates know if a lead came to one of our websites from an affiliate and if that visit resulted in the use or purchase of a product or service from us, including details of the product or service purchased. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies the person. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
Category 3 : Functionality Cookies
These cookies allow our websites to remember the choices people make while browsing. For instance, we may store geographic location in a cookie to ensure that we show our website localized for a specific area. We may also remember preferences such as text size, fonts, and other customizable site elements. They may also be used to keep track of what featured products or videos have been viewed to avoid repetition. The information these cookies collect will not personally identify a person, and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Category 4 : Targeting Cookies
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to someone and their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times someone sees an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that person has visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
