Cookies

We use cookies for automatic information collection. Cookies can constitute personal data (for example, tracking cookies) and where that is the case, the GDPR becomes applicable.

Cookies are small data files that most website operators place on the browser or hard drive of their user’s computer, smartphone, or other smart device. Cookies can gather information about the user’s use of the website, enable the website to recognise the user as an existing customer when they return to the website at a later date.

Recital 30 to the GDPR defines online identifiers as including cookies and, where cookies can identify an individual, they are considered to be personal data subject to the GDPR. In particular, the GDPR states that cookies, when combined with unique identifiers and other information received by servers, may be used to create profiles of individuals and identify them. The collection and use of cookies therefore has to comply with the GDPR.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

We use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies – these are cookies that are required for the operation of our website.
  • Analytical or performance cookies – these 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.
  • Functionality cookies – used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies – These cookies 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 more relevant to your interests.

Cookies cannot harm the device you use, they do not carry malicious software. Cookies store information that is generated depending on the specific device used. However, this does not mean that in this way we can identify you.

We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used.

Google Analytics Cookie Usage

Google Analytics is a simple, easy-to-use tool that helps website owners measure how users interact with website content. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics provides website owners JavaScript tags (libraries) to record information about the page a user has seen, for example the URL of the page.

The Google Analytics JavaScript libraries use HTTP Cookies to “remember” what a user has done on previous pages / interactions with the website.
