TYPES OF COOKIES
• Strictly necessary cookies.
These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our website which would normally require login details.
• Analytical/performance cookies.
These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This information helps us to improve the way our website works in order that we may enhance user experiences.
• Functionality cookies.
These allow us to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). These cookies also enable users to access videos and audio recordings available.
• Targeting cookies.
These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also use this to send you customised content via email.
Persistent cookies may be used by our website to remember your information and settings when you visit them in the future. This may result in faster and more convenient access since, for example, you don't have to login again. Besides authentication, other website features made possible by persistent cookies include: language selection, theme selection, menu preferences, internal site bookmarks or favourites, among many others. On your first visit, the website is presented in default mode. During your visit, you select your preferences and these preferences may be remembered, through the use of the persistent cookie, the next time you visit the site.
Session cookies are temporary cookie files, which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your browser and go back to the site that created the cookie, the website will not recognize you. You will have to log back in (if login is required) or select your preferences/themes again if the site uses these features. A new session cookie will be generated, which will store your browsing information and will be active until you leave the site and close your browser.
Technical cookies are used to broadcast a communication on a network of electronic communication.
We understand that some internet browsers have incorporated ‘Do Not Track’ features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the websites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. This is different from blocking or deleting cookies, as browsers with a ‘Do Not Track’ feature enabled may occasionally still accept cookies. Our websites do not currently recognise and respond to ‘Do Not Track’ requests.
You can manage or block cookies by activating the settings on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. It should be noted that if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
