Our website uses cookies, which could include also third party cookies, to send advertising that is relevant to you. If you want to find out more about the cookies we use and how to disable them, you can access our Cookie Policy.

Privacy Policy on Cookies Usage

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Cookies don’t search your computer for information. Cookies register the information you provide through your browser.
Cookies are necessary and enhance your browsing experience. Without cookies, you would have to reenter all of your information every time you revisited a site. A cookie will simply remember your information on the website to save you time.

Cookies only store the information you provide. A cookie cannot “grab” your email address. A cookie can store your email address on the website—if you have typed in your email address; a cookie stores all information you voluntarily give when you visit a website.

Cookies themselves contain very little information other than the URL of the website that created the cookie. Because there is so little information, a cookie can’t be used to identify you by name or other personal information. However, advances in technology have seen an increase in how companies can manipulate cookie information to create a profile of your web surfing habits. Again, this is a profile of a particular consumer’s surfing habits and product preferences, there is no name (your name) attached to the profile.
Cookies are harmless. They cannot introduce viruses on your computer.
Cookies are not the same thing as Spyware. A cookie stores your website surfing information; Spyware stores your Internet surfing information (every site you visit).
Cookies don’t identify personal details, however, your IP address is registered wherever they browse (every computer has an Internet Protocol address commonly know as an IP Address). We have no control over that. Electronic acknowledgment of the IP address is just that—it identifies the computer. (It requires extensive computer knowledge and resources, such as those at the disposal of law enforcement agencies, to dig deep enough to identify the person using a particular computer, and even then, the person may not be identifiable if he or she used a computer at a public library, for instance.)
All browsers (Google, Firefox, Bing, Internet Explorer, etc.) have a “Settings” on their toolbars, which may be represented by text or an icon. If desired, you can your clear browser's cookies cache.

How do we use cookies?

A number of our pages use cookies, for example to remember:

1. Your display preferences, such as contrast colour settings or font size
2. If you have already replied to a survey pop-up that asks you if the content was helpful or not (so you won't be asked again)
3. If you have agreed (or not) to our use of cookies on this site
