EU law requires organisations placing cookies through websites onto visitors'computers to obtain their "consent" after providing clear and comprehensive information about how cookies are used on the websites.
In order to comply with this, we have taken four steps:
(i) Identified cookies and other tracking technologies served through this website, the purposes they fulfil, and related information such as their expiry and whether they are first or third party cookies.
(ii) Assessed the intrusiveness of these cookies on visitors' expectations of Privacy, based on the information collected in (i) above.
(iii) Provided 'clear and comprehensive' information about website cookies with the appropriate level of disclosure corresponding with the intrusiveness of each cookie
(iv) Decided on an appropriate strategy for obtaining consent for website cookies, taking into account their use and intrusiveness. Certain types of cookie may qualify for legal exemptions and, where this is the case, consent will not be required for these cookies.
The consent strategy that is appropriate for any given type of Cookie will depend on the intrusiveness of that Cookie, taking into account:
For Cookies requiring consent, we follow a three-tiered approach for obtaining visitor consent:
Implied consent for most Cookies: With only a few exceptions, the great majority of Cookies deployed through our websites are of low to medium intrusiveness only.
Cookie disclosures by type, rather than by identity: Given the number of Cookies served through websites, the assessment below does not disclose and assess the intrusiveness of each Cookie individually. Instead, it groups Cookies by category (for example, 'advertising cookies', 'analytics cookies' and so on) and assesses the intrusiveness of each category, taking into account the specific features of the Cookies that are within that category. This enables Cookie disclosures that are simpler and clearer for consumers to understand.
NOTE: An assessment of the Cookie types served used by our websites appears in the table below which provides information about their purpose(s), expiry and information how to block the cookies.
