Types of cookies we use

These cookies are used to ensure you can correctly navigate our websites and play videos, listen to podcasts or share pages via social media.

Performance

These cookies are used to analyse trends, administer the website, track visitor movements and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve our websites. These cookies are not linked to personally identifiable information. 

Targeting and Advertising

The social media sharing functionality on certain web pages is provided by the third party AddThis.  As you navigate these pages or if you use the sharing buttons, AddThis will automatically set cookies.

We sometimes advertise our products, services and vacancies on third party websites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google and Bing. To help us target our advertising we use cookies from those third parties on our websites to tell us which pages you clicked on and interacted with. Each third party uses its own tracking cookies. If you don’t want to be shown targeted advertising, some third party sites allow you to request not to see messages from specific advertisers. These third party cookies are not under our control so you should check the websites and cookie policies of any third parties.

This will take the form of a small, transparent image, which is embedded in each email.  It will be used to send information such as your IP address, when each email was viewed, from what device and which geo-location.  We use information about email usage to compile reports and to help us improve our communications.

Our websites may also collect your IP address which is routinely stored as part of web server log files for 14 days.
