Cookie Policy

Strictly not for eating!

“Cookies” are small text files that are stored by your web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer’s hard drive or on your mobile phone. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a “memory” for a website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately.

Websites use both session cookies and persistent cookies.

  • Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) when you close your browser.
  • Persistent cookies usually have an expiry date far into the future and thus stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them.

We use persistent cookies for functionalities like the “Remember me on this computer” feature, which makes it possible for you to return to the site without having to log in.

In addition to cookies set by the website you are visiting (first party cookies), both session and persistent cookies may be set by others (third party cookies). For example, analytics firms, social media sites and advertising networks may all set cookies when you visit other sites with which they have relationships.

The cookies generated when you visit our website fall into the following categories:

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies enable services you have specifically asked for. No consent is required for the use of these cookies.

For example, when you subscribe to one of our Internet Products or register as a community user, we use session cookies to signal that you are logged in so that you are able to use community or subscriber features of the Website, and persistent cookies to provide automatic login.

Performance cookies

These cookies collect anonymous information about how you use the Website. By using the Website or becoming a community user or subscriber, you agree that we can place these types of cookies.

We use performance cookies for web analytics, which allow us to statistically monitor how people are using our Website, to help us improve our online offerings as well as to test different design ideas for particular pages. We work with independent measurement and research companies to perform these services for us, so some of these cookies may be set by a third party company.

In particular, we use Google Analytics to help us track and analyse usage of our Website, using cookies and action tags. All data collected by Google on our behalf is owned by us and used to better understand our users and improve our Website. More information, including how to opt out of these cookies, can be found in Google’s Privacy Policy.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow our Website to remember choices you make to improve your experience (such as your unit of measurement preferences) and to provide enhanced, more personal features (such as information about your browser and whether you have configured your Website tools), and to improve response speed and efficiency by storing certainly frequently-accessed information. By using the Website or becoming a community user or subscriber, you agree that we can place these types of cookies.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our subscriber content, downloads and regular e-newsletters. We gather statistics related to email opening and clicks using industry-standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our communications.
