However, when it is read by a server via a web browser, it can help a website deliver a more user-friendly service – for example, remembering login details and website settings/preferences.

Like most websites, our online channels/applications (apps) collect some information (e.g., IP addresses, browsers, internet service providers, browsing history, operating systems, date stamps, time stamps and clickstream data). This information will not be linked to any other information we collect about you unless you have given your consent.

Both we and our third-party tracking utility partners use browser storage, app storage, cookies, pixels, scripts, and tags to analyse trends, manage the site, track user movement through the site and collect demographic information about our overall user base.
