What are Cookies?
To use our website fully, you will need to have cookies enabled. If you do not wish to enable cookies, you can still browse the site; however certain features of the site may be limited. Most web browsers have cookies automatically enabled; however see the Managing Cookies section below to find out how to check your cookie settings.
You many notice the presence of different types of cookies generated on your visit to this website. We use three types of cookies:
- Session cookies, which are automatically deleted after every visit.
- Persistent cookies that will remain in place during multiple visits to the site.
- Third party cookies, which are used by partner websites that are embedded within our site or that we link to.
These enable you to perform essential functions on the site, such as remembering a repeat form field item within a browsing session. In addition, they help by limiting the need to transfer information across the Internet. They are not stored on your computer and will expire when you terminate your browser session.
These enable us to recognise anonymous repeat visitors to the site. By matching an anonymous, randomly generated identifier, a record can be taken of specific browsing information such as how you arrive at the site, the pages you view, options you select, and the path taken through the site. By monitoring this information we are able to make improvements to the site, including the fixing of errors and the enhancement of content.
We use Adobe Omniture SiteCatalyst and Google Analytics software to analyse page use, page interactions and the routes taken through our site. These are known as "website metrics" or "analytics". We do not record any personal information as part of this process.
