Functional cookies: These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation, such as selecting your region or preferred language. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages.
Performance cookies: These cookies allow us to collect information about how you use our website, such as to count the number and source of visits, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They also help us to know which pages are the most popular, see how visitors move around the site, and spot any difficulties our readers have with the site. For example, the Google Analytics cookie gives us information such as your journey between pages and whether you have downloaded anything. We also use this technology to check if you have opened our emails, so we can see if they are being delivered correctly and are of interest. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and does not identify the usage of a single person or their personal identity.

We use or allow third parties to place cookies, such as Google Analytics which helps us understand more about our website traffic including how long users spend on the site and the pages they visit. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking and improving site functionality.
