Our Portals use cookies to collect information about you

 

  • 1. What are cookies?

    Cookies are small files, typically made up of letters and numbers, that are stored on your browser when you access a website. We set and access these cookies on your computer in order to automatically log data regarding each visit you make to our Portals such as your IP address, browser type, referring/exit pages, and operating system. We may use this information to monitor server errors, server administration or to monitor visitor behaviour. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and, for instance, remember your preferences and generally improve your online user experience.

    Although this Cookies Policy refers to the general term “cookie”, which is the main method used by this website to store information, the browser’s local storage space is also used for the same purpose and we may use other tracking technologies through this website such as web beacons. As a result, the information included in this Cookie Policy is likewise applicable to all such tracking technologies that we use.

    You can find out more about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.

  • 2. Why we use cookies?

    • To let you do things on our Portals – for example, cookies enable you to log in to secure areas of our Portals.
    • To collect anonymous statistics – the information collected by cookies enables us to improve our Portals through usage figures and patterns. For example, it is really useful to see which pages of the Portals – and therefore which of our services – are the most popular and how users are interacting with them.
    • To improve your experience of our website – for example, to prevent you having to re-enter details when you have already done so, or by ensuring that users can find what they are looking for easily. We may use cookies to allow this website to remember choices you make (such as your username, or the region you are in) and provide enhanced and more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you may be able to customise from time to time.
