Last Updated: June 23, 2022

1. Our Use of Cookies

This Cookies Policy describes the cookies that are automatically set and others that you may choose to set when you visit our website and use our mobile application (“Technology”) and the purposes for which we use them.

Our Technology uses cookies to distinguish you from other users. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our Technology.

Some cookies work by collecting and storing some form of personal information about you, so this Policy also describes the personal information we process or allow others to access when using cookies.

For further information on how we use the personal information we collect about you (including information collected through our use of cookies) please see our Privacy Policy.

2. What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your device to allow a website to recognise you as a unique, either for the duration of your visit (using a session cookie) or for repeat visits (a persistent cookie). Other similar files such as pixels and beacons work in the same way and we use the word ‘cookie’ in this Cookies Policy to refer to all technologies that collect information in this way. Cookies can also be used in emails you receive to help understand your level of engagement with them.

Cookies can be ‘first party’ (which are set by us) or ‘third party’ (which are placed on your device by another Technology when you use our Technology).

Cookies are a common technology for remembering certain information about a visitor to a website. The vast majority of websites currently make use of cookies and they are commonly used for a wide range of tasks. We use the following types of cookies for the following purposes:

Browser cookies. We use cookies set via your web browser for the following purposes:

• Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are necessary for our Technology to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They include, for example, a cookie that is set for security reasons or to remember your cookie consent preferences. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of our Technology will then cease to work.

• Functional cookies. These cookies enable our Technology to provide enhanced functionality and personalised features. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.

• Performance / Analytics cookies. These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our Technology. They help us to know which pages of our website are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around our Technology. All information these cookies collect is aggregated after it is collected. If you do not allow these cookies we will be unable to measure traffic to our Technology and unable to monitor its performance.

• Targeting / Advertising Cookies. These cookies may be set through our Technology by our advertising partners. They may be used by those partners to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other Technologys. They do not directly store personal information about you, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will receive less relevant advertising.

3. Consenting to the Use of Cookies

Certain cookies we use are strictly necessary for our Technology to work. For example, when you visit our Technology for the first time, we present you with a cookie pop-up and tool (Cookie Tool) requesting your consent for non-essential cookies. We have to use a cookie to remember your cookie preferences in order to comply with the law (you can see details of this cookie in the table below).

When you first visit our Technology, we automatically set essential cookies on your device that are strictly necessary for our Technology to work. In relation to all other types of cookies we wish to use, you will be invited to consent to our use of them using our Cookie Tool. If you do not provide your consent using the Cookie Tool, we will not set these cookies on your device.

If you do not provide your consent, our Technology will still work but some of the enhanced and personalised features may not.

If you provide your consent in respect of cookies, you will also be providing your consent for us and the relevant third parties that use those cookies to use your personal information in the ways set out in our Privacy Policy. We will only set or read the relevant cookies for the durations set out in the table below. You can withdraw your consent at any time by using the Cookie Tool to turn off/opt-out of the relevant cookies. The cookie files may remain on your device after you have opted-out of using them. Please see the How to control and delete cookies section of this Policy or check your browser’s help pages to find out how to delete these files from your device.

If you withdraw your consent for us to use non-essential cookies, the consent you have given us to use any personal information we collect using those cookies will also be withdrawn. Please see our Privacy Policy for further details.

4. Cookies Used on Our Technology

The table below sets out the first party and third party cookies that are set and read on your device. The legal reason (also known as the ‘lawful basis’) for using the personal information collected using the cookies is also set out in the table.

Some third party cookies are set by third parties that provide a service to us and who act on our behalf and on our instructions. Our Privacy Policy applies to the personal information collected using these cookies.

5. Google Analytics

Our Technology uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies to analyse the use of our Technology by you and other visitors. The information generated by the cookie about the use of our Technology is usually transferred to a server of Google in the United States where it is stored. Please see our Privacy Policy for further information regarding personal information transferred overseas.

We have activated internet protocol (IP) address anonymisation for Google Analytics so that your IP address is shortened in advance of transfer to Google if you are located in the United Kingdom or European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our Technology by you and other users, to compile reports on the activities on our Technology and for further purposes related to the use of our Technology to provide services to us.

The IP address submitted by your browser to Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. Please see our Privacy Policy for details of the personal information that we collect from you using the Google Analytics service.
