Cookies help make sites work efficiently and analyse web traffic to provide business and marketing information to enable developers to make informed decisions on the advancement of websites.
Overall, our cookies help us provide you with a better service by monitoring which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie does not give us any access to your computer or any personal information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer, but this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
In summary, our cookies will:

- Help us understand how you use our site
- Improve your experience by remembering information that you have provided to us
- Help you by showing you information that is relevant to you.

Each browser works differently, so an excellent place to start is by searching 'cookie settings' in your browser's help section. However, changing your cookie settings to block some or all of our cookies may affect how well our website performs for you.

What Cookies do we use?
Websites use lots of different cookies, each with distinct purposes. We have divided the cookies that we use into separate categories of necessary cookies, performance cookies, third-party cookies, and targeting/advertising cookies. These are detailed below:
- Necessary cookies
These cookies protect your information and let you use the essential features we have built into our website, and without them, you would not be able to use our live chat facility.
These cookies ensure our website operates as you would expect. If you choose to block them, we cannot guarantee that our site will perform as intended.
Please note that our website may contain links to websites operated by third-party companies. While we are responsible for inserting these links into our website pages, these websites and the personal data they collect from you are outside our control. They will have separate privacy policies and user data collection mechanisms. We cannot accept responsibility or liability for the privacy practices of these third-party websites, and your use of these sites must be at your own risk.
Our website also includes Social Interaction links (including LinkedIn and Twitter). Except for Twitter (see the section on Third-Party Cookies below), these third-party social networking companies do not deliver cookies unless you specifically choose to select the link and navigate to their website. We do not control any cookies that you may receive once you have navigated to such external sites. We advise that you check their cookie policies before selecting a link.
- Performance Cookies
These cookies help us improve the way our site operates, tell us how visitors use each page, and which pages they view most often. They are also used to record any errors should they occur for diagnostic purposes.
Google Analytics is used to collect visitor statistics to improve our site. A relevant data processing agreement is in place with Google. There is no exchange of data with other Google services, and any IP addresses collected are anonymised. If you prefer blocking the Analytics script completely, you can download an opt-out plugin for Google Analytics here. This plugin will exclude your visit from the statistics of all websites using Google Analytics.
Examples of the information we may collect include:
- What content our visitors view, their browsing actions, and how they use our site
- When visitors use our site
- What leads people to our site
- What technology of visitors use to access our site
- The general geographical location of the visitors to our site
- Identifiers such as IP address that may allow the linking of information collected to an individual.
- Our performance cookies allow us to:
- Understand how our site is used so we can make improvements for our customers
- Measure the performance of our site
- Test different versions of our site
- Understand what devices, browsers, and technologies we should design our website to support
- Track any visitor trends that may help us to plan for the future.
Our performance cookies will not store any personal information on your device beyond details of your current visit to our site.
The following cookies are provided by third parties who deliver functionality embedded within our website and are necessary for the correct operation of this functionality.
Targeting and Advertising Cookies
We use Google AdWords to manage advertising on our website using cookies provided by Google. These specially designed cookies gather information from you and your web browsing device to display advertisements on relevant topics that may be of interest to you. Advertisers use these cookies to collect information to share with other advertisers. They do this to measure the performance of their advertisements. These cookies also build user profiles from each visit to our website to gather statistics on the performance of the ads that can carry across many sites. We specifically use targeting cookies to display customised content for you.
You can choose to disable advertising cookies entirely or by disabling adverts from specific companies. This action will not disable the display of adverts on the internet but will prevent them from being tailored to your interests or preferences. You can set your advertising preferences via this external website: www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.
Our targeting and advertising cookies allow us to track referrals to our website from third-party companies, and deliver content that may be more relevant to you based on your browsing history.
Our targeting and advertising cookies will not share or record any personal information about you.
