Cookies on our website

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another third party website, to recognize your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

What sort of cookies do we use?

Our cookies

We set just one cookie of our own when you visit our website. When you first visit the website you are shown a notification that informs you that the site uses cookies and provides a link to this page. When you close the notification we set a small cookie called cookieconsent_dismissed on your computer that stores the fact that you have seen the notification. Each subsequent time you visit the website we check for the cookie, and if it exists we will not show you the notification again.

Third party cookies

We use some third-party services which set their own cookies.

Analytics cookies

We use Google Analytics to collect information about how visitors use this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site. Google Analytics anonymizes the IP address by removing the last octet (the last four digits) before storing it. It does not collect any personal information about you, such as your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. For more information read about Google Analytics data privacy and security.

YouTube cookies

We embed YouTube videos on some of our pages. YouTube, its parent company Google and Google's advertising subsidiary DoubleClick set cookies when you visit a page that contains an embedded YouTube video.

These cookies register anonymous statistical data on, for example, how many times the video is displayed and what settings are used for playback. No personal data is collected unless you log in to your Google account.

DoubleClick cookies

These cookies are used by Google to collect statistics for displaying targeted advertisements in YouTube videos.

For more information about all of Google's cookies, including YouTube and DoubleClick cookies, read the general Google Privacy Policy and Google's explanation of how it uses cookies.
