Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. interactive content, analytics). Third parties that set these cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits our website and when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

Other cookies enable us to track our website users to gather information about the number of visitors and whether they are return or first-time visitors. This is used for example to measure any increase in site traffic related to media campaigns. No personal data is collected.
