What types of cookies do we use?
We use the following types of cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies: These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Site and under our terms with you. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Site and use a shopping cart.
Analytical/performance cookies: They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Site when they are using it. This helps us for our legitimate interests of improving the way our Site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
Functionality cookies: These are used to recognize you when you return to our Site. This enables us, subject to your choices and preferences, to personalize our content, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
Targeting/Advertising cookies: These cookies record your visit to our Site, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed.

Social media, analytics and advertising partner cookies:
Google Tag Manager: Our Site also uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. Tags are small elements of code that are used, for example, to measure traffic and visitor behavior, to understand the effect of online advertising and social channels, to set up remarketing and orientation towards target groups, and to test and optimize websites. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and, as a result, no personal data is recorded. We list it here for completeness and to be transparent about the tools we use. If deactivation has been performed at a domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags if these are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
DoubleClick: Google's Doubleclick re-targeting cookie lets us serve personalized adverts to you when you're browsing other websites and social media platforms. You can control advert personalization on Google and partner websites here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en-GB&gl=uk.
Coremetrics: Coremetrics serve a cookie onto your browser to help us with "analytics" – which is the way website operators try to understand how different categories of user use the Site, so we can make it easier and quicker for our users to find what they want and generally to improve the online experience. If you have created an account on our Site or and if you are logged on in this profile, a unique number identifying this profile is also being sent to Coremetrics in order to be able to match the web analytics data to this profile.
