  • Behavioral Advertising Cookies/Third Party Cookies:
    We may use cookies to provide tailored advertising to you which we believe are relevant to you, this, only if we use advertising on our website. Online behavioral advertising is a way of providing advertisements on the websites you visit and making them more relevant to your interests. This is done by grouping together shared interests based upon previous web browsing activity. Advertising is then displayed to you when you visit a website which matches these interests. Behavioral advertising is based upon your web browsing activity over a period of time – so it’s different to advertising you may see when you’re looking for something online using a search engine (eg. Google) or on the website you may be visiting at a particular time. As an example, you may be doing research in order to buy a bicycle and read a number of different articles on a number of different websites. If a bicycle manufacturer was part of an advertising network, they may think that you are interested in buying a bicycle and serve you with one of their adverts for one of their bicycles. It is possible that from reading these articles elsewhere, you would see this advert on one of our or someone else’s websites. We cannot control nor do we have access to any cookies placed on your computer by third party advertisers and sponsors. We may also track IP addresses.

How to control the use of cookies

You can turn off the cookies on your browser. The browser you use not only allows you to see the cookies that you have got but also allows you to control their use.

If this option is selected, you should be aware that many websites will not function properly or at all. It may be possible to set your browser to not accept cookies and ask for your consent before each cookie is set on your device. This gives you control over what is set on your device, however has the drawback of slowing down your browsing experience.

There are different levels of control too. You are able to prevent just third party cookies being deployed, effectively opting out of behavioral advertising, and some even allow you to block specific companies you do not wish to deploy a cookie, instead of selecting all companies.
