Site Improvement Cookies
We regularly test new designs or site features on Our Sites. We do this by showing slightly different versions of Our Sites to different people and anonymously monitoring how visitors to Our Sites respond to these different versions. Ultimately this helps us to offer you better sites.

Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither we, nor our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.
You can learn more about online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com .
You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices although we would prefer that you didn’t as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you any longer.
We use: Facebook audience tracking
You may notice that sometimes after visiting a site you see increased numbers of adverts from the site you visited. This is because advertisers, including ourselves pay for these adverts. The technology to do this is made possible by cookies and as such we may place a so called “remarketing cookie” during your visit. Don’t worry we are unable to proactively reach out to you as the whole process is entirely anonymised. You can opt out of these cookies at any time as explained above.
Turning Cookies Off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of Our Sites and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites.

We may alter these terms at any time. Any such changes will take effect on your first use of Our Sites after the changes have been made. Please do then periodically check this page from time to time.
