We, and these vendors, use first-party cookies and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) to inform, optimize and serve ads based on past visits. You may opt out of the DoubleClick cookie by visiting the Google advertising opt-out page or you may opt out of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt-out page.


(3) Cookies

A cookie is a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The text file is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

We use "session" cookies on this website. From time to time we may also use "persistent" cookies on the website.

We will send you cookies which may be stored on by your browser on your computer's hard drive. We may use the information we obtain from the cookie in the administration of this website and to improve the website's usability. We may also use cookies to recognise your computer when you visit our website and to enable an auto-login feature.

Whilst session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser, persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. (For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy", and selecting "Block all cookies" using the sliding selector.) This will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.

In addition, we use Google Analytics to analyse the use of this website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on users' computers. The information generated relating to our website is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store this information.
