We may store information about your visit using cookies (small files of letters and numbers which are sent by us to your computer or other access device when you visit our website) which we can access when you visit our corporate site in future. We do this for the following reasons:
- recognising your preferences so you don't need to re-enter them on every visit
- tracking progress through online applications
- monitoring site performance and content popularity
- remarketing: using third party technologies to advertise online and make ads more relevant to you.
We may also use personalisation cookies to build profiles relating to you and other visitors so that we can direct more relevant content to you based on your use of our Website.
We do not generally store any other personal data that you provided to us in your cookies.
We use ‘session’ cookies which enable you to carry information across pages of our Website and avoid having to re-enter information. Session cookies enable us to compile statistics that help us to understand how the Website is being used and to improve its structure.
We use ‘persistent’ cookies which are cookies that remain in the cookies file of your browser for longer and help us to recognise you as a unique visitor to the Website, tailoring the content of certain areas of the Website to offer you content that match your preferred interests.
On some of our web pages third parties may also set their own cookies (for example when you click social media sharing buttons or view embedded videos hosted on another Website). We cannot access the data stored in any such cookies (nor can such third parties access our cookies).
