For example, if you have a contract in place with us for the provision of services or have made a purchase via our website, we may use your data as necessary to perform the contract. If you do not wish to receive any contact from us, you may unsubscribe at any time by contacting us as set out below. 

COOKIES

Like many other websites and apps, we use cookies, scripts, pixel tags, etags, web beacons and similar technologies (collectively referred to as “cookies”) to help us gather and store information about visitors to our websites and apps and certain third party websites with whom we have partnered.

We use a range of cookies on our website, including strictly necessary cookies, performance / analytics cookies, functional cookies and advertising cookies. The cookies may be set by us or by a third party, including advertising cookies, which are used by our advertising partners to show online adverts based on your activity. When you first visit our website, you will be asked if you agree to cookies – and we will not use these cookies unless and until you provide your consent.  

If you have any questions about our use of cookies, please get in touch with us using the details at the end of this notice.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your device’s hard disk. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. The other technologies we use serve a very similarly function but work slightly differently.

We use two broad types of cookies:

  • First party cookies, served directly by us to your device when you visit our website; and
  • Third party cookies, served by a third party on our behalf when you visit our website and certain third party websites with whom we have partnered.

These cookies can be divided into session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remember your user choices and preferences and are then deleted as soon as you leave the site.  Persistent cookies stay in one of your browser’s subfolders until you delete them manually or until they expire.

How does this website use cookies?  

This website uses the following cookies for the following purposes:

  • Strictly Necessary cookies : These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website.  Without these cookies, our website cannot function properly and services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided. Examples of Strictly Necessary Cookies we may use on this website include Content Management Cookies which are required by the site for the content management system to work and Template Preference Cookies which are necessary for mobile sites and enable the site to look and feel the way it is intended to.
  • Performance and Analytics cookies : These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and any error messages visitors receive from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that directly identifies a visitor. Information collected by these cookies is often aggregated and therefore becomes anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works, and understand how most people use our website.
    One example of this is Google Analytics, which we use to help analyse use of the site. This analytical tool uses cookies to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information which is then aggregated so that it does not identify any individuals. The information about your use of the website and your IP address is transmitted to Google and is used by us to evaluate visitors' use of the website, compile statistical reports on website activity and create a profile of aggregated visitors based on demographics and interests. View an overview of Google Analytics’ privacy commitments here.  To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit here.
  • Functional cookies : These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or posting a comment. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
    We may place a cookie to remember your preferences (Preference Cookie) so that you do not need to re-enter your details (country/age and language preferences) on our gateway page. You can choose this by selecting ‘Remember me on this device’, but it is not suitable if you share your computer with someone else. 
  • Advertising cookies : These cookies are used to deliver content that is more relevant to you and your interests based on your previous browsing across the web as well as keywords we may be able to gather from the URLs of webpages from which you accessed this website, your IP address and any search engine used to reach this website. Also, these cookies may be used to deliver online interest-based advertising to you (either within this website or when you visit third party websites, including third party social media platforms) or to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. They stay on your computer unless you delete them and they remember that you have visited a website.

Marketing cookies we use include Third Party Cookies set by Google and Facebook, whom we use for online interest-based advertising. You can read Google’s privacy policy here. We also use certain Facebook advertising tools (such as Facebook “pixel”) for online interest-based advertising purposes – you can read Facebook’s data privacy policy here.

 We may also use certain service providers to set cookies on our behalf via third party partner websites. These cookies enable us to analyse visits to specific sections of those websites and collect certain information regarding purchases of our products. The types of information collected by such cookies may include: shopping cart information, what product pages have been viewed, whether a purchase of our product has been made, which of our products have been searched for.

We may also use social sharing plugins and cookies. The Social Sharing plugin works by linking you with social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest and allows interaction between your activity on social media sites and on our website through your direction. Social Sharing cookies are used to remember that you are logged in to our site. If you visit a page which we maintain on a social media site such as Facebook, it is likely that cookies will also be set on your device. These cookies are set by the social media network and so, to change the cookies that you receive from these sites, even on our pages, you will need to change use the settings provided by the social media site.
