Google Adsense – this Cookie is used by Google and reports to us on how any adverts on our site is performing. All user data is anonymous. You can find out more about Google and its policies regarding advertising at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
DoubleClick (Google) – this is very similar to the Google Adsense Cookie, but is specific to any display advertising on our site. All user data is anonymous. You can find out more about Google and its policies regarding advertising at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
Google Analytics – we use this to help us to understand how our site is being used so that we can improve the user experience. You can find out more about Google’s position on privacy in relation to its analytics service at http://www.google.co.uk/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html
Social buttons – you will see most of the pages on our site feature ‘social buttons’. These enable users to share or bookmark pages on the web. Our site includes: Twitter, Google +1, Facebook ‘Like’, and LinkedIn ‘share’. To connect these buttons to the relevant social networks and external sites, we have had to implement scripts from outside. Because of this, it is likely that these external sites are collecting data about what you are doing all around the internet, not just on our website. You should check the respective policies on each of these sites to see how any information that they may have gathered on your session is used and to find out how to opt out or delete such information
External web services – sometimes we have to use external web services, mostly to display content within our website, such as Flickr, YouTube and Vimeo. In time, we may use other external sources too, so the list presented is not exhaustive. As with the social buttons, we cannot prevent these sites, or external domains from collecting information on your usage of this embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services, then they will not know who you are, but they will still be able to gather anonymous information during any session on our website.
Email tracking – some of the emails we send to you such as service emails or invoice emails contain no tracking. However, we do from time to time send you emails that do contain tracking, i.e. newsletters, offers etc. We track these emails so we can see how much traffic those emails send to our website and to help us improve what we do. Sometimes we do use the personal information e.g. to re-email people who didn’t click the first time, but if you would rather we didn’t do that and you want to opt out, then you can do this via Your Account.
