Third party cookies

This website makes use of:

Google Analytics – Allows us to view anonymous visitor data so we can improve this website and ensure it delivers optimal value for its users. We typically make use of the overall visitor counts, the search parameters users used to find us and the amount of time a user spent on the site.

Google Tag Manager – We use Google Tag Manager (GTM) to log various tracking tags throughout the website which can then be analysed via an external interface. We use these tags to determine the specific actions users take and identify bugs and errors. GTM logs data in a quantitative form, meaning no personally identifiable data will be recorded or used.

Google ReCAPTCHA – Enables us to determine between human visitors or potentially non-human users (bots). The cookie allows the Google ReCAPTCHA system to identify behaviours consistent with bot traffic and will block areas of the website to users who exhibit such behaviours. This helps keep the website, its users and its administrators secure.

Facebook Pixel – We may choose to perform Facebook advertising campaigns, and to determine how they are performing, we utilise Facebook Pixel cookies. These cookies are stored for a maximum of 30 days before being deleted permanently and will not allow website administrators or any third parties access to any personally identifiable information.

Background information

The 2003 Regulations implemented a European Directive – 2002/58/EC – which is concerned with the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector. In 2009 this Directive was amended by Directive 2009/136/EC. This included a change to Article 5(3) of the E-Privacy Directive requiring consent for storage or access to information stored on a subscriber or users’ terminal equipment – in other words a requirement to obtain consent for cookies and similar technologies.
