TLDR: Cookies help us monitor and track your online interests in order to optimize your experience and enjoyment. You can adjust these settings any time.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that can be placed on your device that allows us to recognise and remember you. It is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive or tablet or mobile device. When you visit our site, we may collect information from you automatically through cookies or similar technology, such as a tag or pixel.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies in a range of ways to improve your experience on our Website, including:

  • Understanding how you use our site
  • Showing you news that is relevant to you
  • Working with partners to deliver to you relevant advertising

If you are a California or US resident, you may elect to opt out of all sales of personal information through these cookies, tags, pixels, and web beacons by clicking the “California resident – Do not sell” link located in the footer of every page or by clicking the “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” button inside our privacy banner. If you are not a California or US resident, you can exercise control over this technology by visiting the “Privacy settings” link in the footer of every page. This page discloses all of our information sharing and gives you the opportunity to toggle on or off that sharing. In this manner, you may craft a personal data sharing plan consistent with your personal privacy values. Cookies that are used by us are referred to as “first-party cookies” and those that are used by our partners are “third-party cookies”. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access third-party cookies; nor can other organisations access the data in the cookies we use on our website. There are more details about both types of cookies in the following sections.

What types of cookies do we use?

We use four types of cookies:

  • Essential – cookies that are essential to provide you with services you have requested.
  • Performance – cookies which measure how often you visit our site and how you use it. 
  • Functionality – cookies that are used to recognise you and remember your preferences. 
  • Advertising – cookies that are used to collect information about your visit to our site, including the content you have viewed, the links you have followed and information about your browser, device and your IP address. We have set out more details on this below.

How do we use cookies for advertising?

Cookies are a key part of how we deliver advertising on our sites. Among other uses, they allow us to show more relevant advertising to people who visit our Site by showing you advertisements that are based on your browsing patterns and the way you have interacted with our sites. We can then show you ad which we believe may interest you.

As you browse our site, some of the cookies and similar technology we place on your device are for advertising, so we can understand what sorts of pages you read and are interested in. We can then display advertising on your browser based on these interests. 

The advertising techniques we use do not collect personal data such as your name, email address or phone number. We sometimes use information such as your IP address and browser type and also sometimes share some limited aspects of this with others for advertising purposes. Under California law, this collected data can be considered “personal information.” Please consult the Privacy Policy for more information about your California Privacy Rights.

We may also share and receive online data collected through cookies and similar technology with our advertising partners. This means that when you are on another website, you may be shown advertising based on your browsing patterns on our sites. We may also show you advertising on our sites based on your browsing patterns on other sites that we have obtained from our advertising partners.

Online retargeting is another form of online advertising that allows us and some of our advertising partners to show you advertising based on your browsing patterns and interactions with other sites. The use of cookies may mean that when you are on another site, you may be shown advertising based on what you have looked at on our sites. For example, if you have visited the website of an online clothes shop, you may start seeing advertisements from that same shopping site displaying special offers or showing you the products you were browsing. This allows companies to advertise to you if you leave their website without making a purchase.

Our apps integrate third-party software that provides us with information about how the app is used and what content you have viewed for the purposes of online advertising and analytics, in a similar way to our sites. It uses cookies from some of the providers listed here, among others.

How to manage cookies

You can manage the use of cookies on our sites, including advertising cookies, and disable the sharing of data with partners for advertising purposes by using the steps set out here. 

You can further manage the use of advertising cookies and disable the sharing of data with partners for advertising purposes by clicking the privacy settings link in the footer of this page. However, if you are located in the US, please use the “California resident – Do Not Sell button” instead, you can find it in the footer of every page.

It is also possible to stop your browser from accepting cookies altogether by changing your browser’s cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser. The following links may be helpful, or you can use the “Help” option in your browser.
