Analytics Cookies & Tracking Pixels

In order to keep our site relevant, easy to use and up-to-date, we use web analytics services to help us understand how people use them. For example, we can see which products are most popular, identify when errors occur, and test different versions of a page or feature to see which one works best. These web analytics services may be designed and operated by other companies on our behalf.

Cookies and tracking pixels allow web analytics services to recognise your browser or device and, for example, identify whether you have visited services before, what you have purchased, previously viewed or clicked on, and how you found us.

It allows us to track information, such as how many individual users we have and how often they visit our websites. It also helps us to analyse patterns of user activity and to develop a better user experience.

Web analytics data and cookies cannot be used to identify you as they never contain personal information such as your name or email address. However, if you have registered and signed in to our Digital Products and Services, we may combine information from your registration with the data we get from the web analytics service and its cookies (or similar technologies) to analyse how you and other people use our Digital Products and Services in details.

Cookies may be placed on your device by our third party service providers which remember that you have visited a website in order to provide you with targeted adverts which are more relevant to you and your interests.
