Our Cookie Policy

This web site uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are sent by web servers and stored on visitors computers so they can be read back later, a convenient way of allowing a computer to remember specific information relating to a web site and provide a better user experience.

The cookies we use on this site are ‘analytical’ cookies, created by Google Analytics. These cookies are unobtrusive and allow both the web site to function and for us to obtain information about the usage of our site, viewing data such as the number of visits, duration of each visit and path taken by the user around the site. This allows us to monitor and improve the way our web site works by, for example, making sure users can easily find what they are looking for.

Hotjar

We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimise this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users’ experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behaviour and their devices. This includes a device’s IP address (processed during your session and stored in a de-identified form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), and the preferred language used to display our website. Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymised user profile. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on our behalf.
For further details, please see the ‘about Hotjar’ section of Hotjar’s support site.
