Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our website and welcome any feedback about these sites.
Cookies are small pieces of information that can be stored on your hard drive (persistent cookies) or computer memory (session cookies). Cookies help us understand which parts of our website are most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there.

Website tracking and measurement
We use third party website trackers, such as Google or DoubleClick, to collect information on how you use our website. The services are used to aggregate website statistics anonymously, such as number of page views, the number of unique visitors, time spent on our site, and to determine advertising effectiveness.
We use remarketing or similar audiences and demographics and interest reporting to gather information for online advertising which allows us to reach people who have previously visited our website, and to match the right people with the right message. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, a site in the Google Display Network, or via third party vendors who show our ads across the internet.
