Anonymous Visitor Statistics Cookies
The following “analytics” programs also tell us on an anonymous basis how people have reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have visited the site before:
- Google Analytics
Sometimes after you have visited a site, you might see the same website increasingly advertised on other sites. This is because advertisers, including ourselves, pay for these adverts. The technology uses a cookie which is sometimes referred to as a remarketing cookie. We use the adverts to encourage you to come back to our site. We are not able to actively contact you or reach you using these cookies as the whole process is strictly anonymised. You can opt out of these cookies by visiting the links below and using their "do not track" options.
- Facebook Cookie information
- Doubleclick Cookie information
Turning Cookies Off
You can also control the remarketing cookies at the links above.
In addition there are websites that can help to prevent, block or allow advertising cookies. An example of one of these websites is Your Online Choices.
