Website Analytics Data
We have engaged one or more third party service providers to track and analyse both individualised usage and aggregated statistics from interactions with our Website.
Email Campaign Tracking
Single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons are automatically placed in marketing emails we send out. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us to recognise when subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each subscribers email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to create reports about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took.
Embedded content from other websites
This site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, widgets). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
The specific types of cookies served through our Website and the purposes they perform are described in further detail below:
These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our website and to use some of its features. Because these cookies are necessary to deliver the website, you cannot refuse them without impacting how our website functions.
These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality of our website but are non-essential to its use. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable.

These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our website is being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customise our website and application for you in order to enhance your experience.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage.
Like most website operators we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request, in order to better understanding how visitors use our website, maintain security and to troubleshoot technical issues.
Our website also logs potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for the purposes of ensuring website performance and security. We do not use such information to identify visitors, however, and will not disclose such information unless required to do so by law.
Embedded content from other websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
We are committed to ensuring that your information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure, we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
