A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or on the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
We use the following cookies:
Strictly Necessary Cookies – These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies you would not be able to use as easily features such as shopping cart and e-billing services.
Analytical/Performance cookies – These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
Functionality Cookies – These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as user name, language or the region that you are in) and provide enhanced personalisation features. They can also be used to remember changes made e.g. text sizes and fonts. They can also be used for services you have asked for e.g. watching videos and commenting on blogs. These cookies are anonymous and they cannot track you browsing on other sites.
Targeting Cookies - These are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They can also limit the amount of times you see an advert. These are placed by advertising networks with the permission of the website operators. These cookies also remember where you have visited and the info can be shared with other organisations.
We may also use analytics tools provided by Google Inc. Google or other similar providers. Our website will collect aggregated data on an anonymized basis. The reason we collect this data is that it enables us to understand the activity that goes on within the website, and allows us to personalise your visit.
We may also use marketing automation tools (specific company information can be given upon request). We use the cookies that are collected through this server as a way to target and tailor specific content to visitors. This again remains anonymized except where the visitor has requested to receive marketing communications from us. If a visitor has registered with us to receive marketing communications we will send targeted e-mail marketing, and then track the effectiveness of the ones we send through the use of clear gif images.
Users can opt out of the collection and use of information for ad targeting:

The emails that we send out, including promotional communications, could also include “clear image” gifs that help us track results of an email campaign. You can turn off gifs in the email itself or by visiting your email client's help menu.
We respect your right to choose whether or not to accept cookies and clear gifs.
