Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit.

They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

We use Google Analytics and Tag Manager cookies in a way that does not directly identify anyone.

We use them to collect data such as how visitors arrive at our website (e.g. from a Google search, one of our advertisements or a link in an article), which links they click on, which pages they open and how long they spend on each page.

These cookies also collect data about the visitor's device, operating system and browser for technical purposes.

We only use cookie data in aggregated form to optimise the effectiveness and usability of our site. We cannot identify you from it and we don't use it for any other purposes, such as profiling or targeted advertising.

Cookie-Control preference cookie

This cookie is used to remember a user’s choice about whether to allow the use of cookies on the website. Where a user has indicated a preference on a previous visit to our site, that user’s preference will be stored in this cookie.

Universal Analytics and TagManager (Google)

They are used to collect information about the number of visitors to our website, where they have come to the website from, how they use the site and the pages they visited. We use this information to compile statistics and reports to help us improve the website and our service. Read Google's overview of privacy and safeguarding data.

Microsoft Azure and Cloudflare cookies

These are non-identifying cookies used for performance, caching, anti-forgery and anti-DDOS (denial of service attacks).

We only keep this cookie data in identifiable form for a matter of hours or, at most, a few days because we cannot use it until it has been aggregated and, therefore, rendered anonymous.

Using cookies to collect this data is lawful because you consent to it. You can withdraw your consent at any time by clicking on the "C" in the bottom right corner.

We also use a cookie to remember your cookie choice so you don’t have to choose every time you visit our site.

You can change your cookie preferences at any time by clicking on the ‘C’ icon. You may need to refresh your page for your settings to take effect.

Alternatively, most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set, visit or
