To help us understand how visitors use our website, we normally place small data files called cookies
on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit
the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language,
font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering
them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

We use Google Analytics, a popular web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics
uses cookies to help us to analyse how users use the site. It counts the number of visitors and tells us
things about their behaviour overall – such as the typical length of stay on the site or the average
number of pages a user views.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address)
will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google currently relies
on the EU-US Privacy Shield to permit this data transfer outside the EU. Google will use this
information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website
activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where
such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google undertakes not to associate
your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a
better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do that some features
of this site may not work as intended.
The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully
under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.
