COOKIES

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are very small text files which store very small amounts of information. They are used to remember settings and preferences between visits to the site, as well as information between different pages on the same site.
For security reasons, cookies can only be read by the site that set them. We have no access to cookies set on your computer by, for example, Google, Yahoo, Microsoft or any other website on the internet. However, through the use of third-party cookies, it is possible for sites to collect information about visitors to other sites. For example, online advertisers may use third party cookies to anonymously track an individual’s visits to sites on the web.
More information about how we allow third party cookies on our sites is given below.
To find out more about cookies in general, you might find the following link useful: Wikipedia: HTTP Cookies.

HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

Currently, there are four types of cookies that may be generated as you browse our site: session cookies, preference cookies, analytics cookies and third-party cookies.
1. Session Cookies
As you move through the site, various pieces of information need to be stored in order for the site to function properly. For example, if you perform a search, the search terms you use will be remembered so that you can change them later. If you log in, we will remember which account you logged in with. If you place items in your shopping cart, we will remember those items so you can check them out later.
This information is stored in a database and is referred to as a session. We set one cookie to keep track of which session you are using. Old session data is automatically deleted from our databases multiple times a day, so we do not store this information long-term.
In addition to the session cookie, we sometimes set a cookie to check if we can set cookies on your computer. This is done for diagnostic purposes. We use this information to help solve any problems you may have encountered.

How do I control session cookies?
You can use your browser settings to control whether or not we set session cookies. More information on your browser settings is provided at the bottom of this page.
Please be aware that cookies are critical to the working of the site. If you choose to disable cookies from this site, you will not be able to log in and the functionality of the site will be greatly reduced.

2. Preference Cookies
Currently ,we only set one type of preference cookie. It is set if you manually switch between mobile or desktop versions (e.g. view the desktop version of the site when on a mobile phone). Your choice will be stored in a cookie.

How do I control preference cookies?
These cookies are set as a direct result of your choice, and function solely as indicators of what that choice was. We do not believe they pose any risk to your privacy. However, you can always use your browser settings to control whether or not our site can set cookies on your computer.
Please be aware that cookies are critical to the working of the site. If you choose to disable cookies from this site, you will not be able to log in and the functionality of the site will be greatly reduced.

3. Analytics Cookies
In order to monitor how our sites are performing, we collect data about page visits. This information is completely anonymous — we cannot determine who it came from. When we use this data, we look at numbers of visitors overall rather than individual visits.
Analytics information is used in reports and to improve our site. For example, we have used analytics data to add, remove or change features of the site based on how popular they are with users.
We track, for example:

  • the numbers of visitors to individual pages;
  • when pages were visited;
  • how long users stayed on the page;
  • the page they came from;
  • technical data about the device being used to browse the site (such as browser and operating system version, and display size) — we use this data to ensure that the technology our site uses is appropriate for the majority of our users, and how best to display the site for users who have less capable browsers.

More information about analytics cookies
We use Google to provide our analytics data. You can read more about how Google Analytics treats your data at: Google: Safeguarding your data.
You can also read Google’s full privacy policy.

How do I control analytics cookies?
Google provides a tool to opt-out of Google Analytics. This is available for all modern browsers in the form of a browser plugin.
Additionally, you can control how cookies are set using your browser settings. See below for more information.

4. Third party cookies
We use a trusted third party plugin to communicate with you on our website. We also use other trusted third party plugins to help monitor and improve our services to you. These plugins often use cookies to accomplish their objectives.
We do not have access to, or control over, these third party cookies; nor can we view the data held by these third-party plugins.

CONTROLLING COOKIES WITHIN YOUR BROWSER

A browser is a program you use to view web pages. Your browser allows you to control what cookies are set on your computer, and how long they are stored. You may have more than one browser installed on your computer. In this case, you will need to change the settings for each browser you use.

Browser help pages relating to cookie settings
