Cookies are widely used by websites and servers to provide many of the basic services that we find online. If you shop on a website, a cookie allows the website to remember which items you've added to your virtual shopping basket. If you set preferences on a website, a cookie allows the website to remember your preferences the next time that you visit. Or, if you sign into a website, the website might use a cookie to recognise your browser later on, so that you don't have to sign in again. Cookies also allow websites to collect data about user activity, such as how many unique visitors a page receives per month. All these applications depend on the information stored in cookies.
Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
These cookies are used to ensure you can correctly navigate our website, remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region), or share pages via social media.
These cookies are used to analyse trends, administer the website, track visitor movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our website. These cookies are not linked to personally identifiable information.
Our website makes use of Google Analytics and Google AdSense. When you visit a website that uses advertising services such as AdSense, including analytics tools such as Google Analytics, your web browser automatically sends certain information to Google. This includes the URL of the page that you’re visiting and your IP address. Google may also set cookies on your browser or read cookies that are already there. Apps that use Google advertising services also share information with Google, such as the name of the app and a unique identifier for advertising.
Most commonly, AdSense sends a cookie to the browser when a user visits a page that shows Google ads. Pages with Google ads include ad tags that instruct browsers to request ad content from our servers. When the server delivers the ad content, it also sends a cookie. But a page doesn’t have to show Google ads for this to happen; it just needs to include our ad tags, which might load a click tracker or impression pixel instead.
From time to time, we send out e-mail communications that may include web beacons, cookies, and similar technologies that allow us to know whether you open, read, or delete the message, and links you may click. When you click a link in an e-mail you receive from us, we will also use a cookie to log what pages you view on our website. Should you wish to avoid such web beacons, cookies and similar technologies from downloading on to your device you are requested to unsubscribe from our regulatory updates service and delete the e-mail in question, without clicking on any links that may be contained therein.
Most browsers give you a level of control over cookies. You can set your browser to accept or reject all, or certain, cookies. For instructions on how to manage cookies, please read the 'Help' section of your browser or visit our guide at www.aboutcookies.org. You can also clear any existing cookies from within your browser. Please be aware that some areas of our website may not function after you have changed your cookie settings.
If a user opts out of ads personalisation using Google's Ads Settings, they will no longer receive personalised advertising from Google.
If you don’t want Analytics to be used in your browser, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The Google Analytics opt-out add-on is designed to be compatible with Chrome, Internet Explorer 11, Safari, Firefox and Opera. In order to function, the opt-out add-on must be able to load and execute properly on your browser. For Internet Explorer, third-party cookies must be enabled.
