Cookies

As is common practice with almost all professional websites, this site uses cookies – tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve your browsing experience. Below we tell you what information they gather, how we use it and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored, however this may downgrade or ‘break’ certain elements of the site functionality.

For more general information on cookies we recommend this Wikipedia article on HTTP Cookies…

How we use cookies:

We use cookies for a variety of reasons. Unfortunately, in most cases there are no industry standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to this site. If you are unsure whether you need them or not, we recommend you to leave cookies enabled, so you can benefit from the service they provide.

Disabling cookies:

You can prevent cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser (see your browser’s Help section for how to do this). Be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not disable cookies.

The cookies we set:

If you create an account with us, then we will use cookies for the management of the signup process and general administration. These cookies will usually be deleted when you log out. However, in some cases they may remain afterwards to remember your site preferences when logged out.

We use cookies when you are logged in so that we can remember this fact. This prevents you from having to log in every single time you visit a new page. These cookies are typically removed or cleared when you log out to ensure that you can only access restricted features and areas when logged in.

This site offers newsletter or email subscription services. Cookies may be used to remember if you are already registered, and whether to show certain notifications, which might only be valid to subscribed/unsubscribed users.

This site offers e-commerce or payment facilities and some cookies are essential to ensure that your order is remembered between pages so that we can process it properly.

From time to time we offer user surveys and questionnaires to provide you with interesting insights, helpful tools, or to understand our users more accurately. These surveys may use cookies to remember who has already taken part in a survey, or to provide you with accurate results after you change pages.

When you submit data to us through a form, such as those found on contact pages or comment forms, cookies may be set to remember your user details for future correspondence.

Third party cookies:

In some special cases we also use cookies provided by trusted third parties. This section details which third party cookies you might encounter through this site.

This site uses Google Analytics, which is one of the most widespread and trusted analytics solutions on the web. It helps us understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit, so we can continue to produce engaging content.

From time to time we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When we are still testing new features, these cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience whilst on the site. This way we ensure we understand which optimizations our users appreciate the most.
