What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your device by the websites you visit. Each cookie contains information about your visit to the website, such as the pages you’ve accessed. The next time you visit that website, the cookie will enable the website to recognise your previous activity on that website.
Cookies don’t harm your device and cookies we use don't store sensitive or personal information.
A visit to a page on our website may generate the following types of cookies:
These cookies allow you to access and navigate around the website, or are strictly necessary for us to provide information or a service through the website.
These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with news or updates relevant to the policies you buy. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, font and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as viewing a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect is usually anonymised. They do not gather any information about you that could be used for advertising or remember where you have been on the internet. They help improve the user experience of the website.
Analytics (or performance) cookies:
Every time a user visits our websites or email newsletter, web analytics software generates an analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you do not, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. These cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only. This allows us, for example, to tell which pages are the most visited at any one time, and to improve the experience of website users.
These cookies may be added by our advertising partners and be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests. This allows them to show you adverts that are suited to your interests on other websites. They do not store personal information, but are reliant on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will see less relevant advertising.
Cookies and consent
Under Data Protection law, we must have your consent to place all but essential cookies on your device. You will be able to select your preferences when you visit the site, and these preferences will be remembered for up to a year when you re-visit the site on the same device, so you only need set them once. However, you can amend your preferences at any time through the cookies settings option.
