If you inform us that you wish to cancel email newsletters we will remove you from our mailing list and your details will be deleted from our records.
When we provide the Services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer or mobile device. These include small files known as cookies.
These pieces of information are used to improve the Services for you through, for example:
- Enabling a Service to recognize your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task;
- Recognizing that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every Service requested;
- Measuring how many people are using our Services, so they can be made easier to use in a timely manner.
Although your browser may be set up to allow the creation of cookies by default, you can specify that you be prompted before a site puts a cookie on your hard disk, so that you can decide whether to allow or disallow the cookie. Alternatively, you can set your computer not to accept any cookie. If you choose to remove or reject cookies, this could affect the availability and functionality of our Services.
Our Services use Google Analytics code to gather statistical information. Google Analytics sets cookies to help us accurately estimate the number of visitors to the Website and the volumes of usage of the Services. This to ensure that the Services are available when you want them and are fast. For more information on how Google Analytics processes this information, visit www.google.com/analytics.
During your use of the Services, you may notice some cookies that are not related to us or the Services. This happens when you visit a page with content embedded from a third party (e.g., YouTube videos) or use some of the links to social networking sites (e.g., Share This).
