Targeting & Advertising Cookies
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant and suited to you and your interests. They’re also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember what websites you have visited and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often, targeting cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
Some of our Web pages may contain electronic images known as Web Beacons (sometimes known as clear gifs) that allow us to count then number of users who have visited these pages.
Web Beacons collect only limited information, these include a cookie number; the time and date of a page view, and a description of the page where the Web Beacon resides.
We may also carry Web Beacons that are placed by third party advertisers. These Beacons do not carry any personally identifiable information and are only used to track the level of effectiveness of a particular campaign.
