How to contact us
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. Cookies can be either session cookies or persistent cookies. A session cookie expires when you close your browser and is used to make it easier for you to navigate our website. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.
You may delete or reject cookies by modifying your browser settings. (Click on ‘Help’ on the toolbar of most browsers for instructions). If you do so, some of the functions and services on our website may not work properly.
Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or web bugs) are tiny graphical images with a unique identifier, similar to the functionality of cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Internet users or to access cookies. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded discreetly in web pages (or email) and are the size of a dot at the end of that sentence.
Web beacons can be used to deliver or link to cookies, count the number of users who have visited particular pages and understand usage patterns. We may also obtain an anonymous identification number if you click through to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third party website.
