We use the following types of cookies:
- Essential cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to use online forms.
- Analytical cookies. They 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 helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
- Marketing cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences. These cookies also 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 communications sent more relevant to your interests.
Other technologies, including data stored on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device, beacons, pixels, tags, and other mechanisms, are used for similar purposes.
