These cookies collect information about how you use our website, for instance which pages you visit, and if you experience any errors.

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
We do have relationships with carefully-selected and monitored suppliers (see full list of cookies below) who may also set cookies during your visit to be used for remarketing purposes - in other words to show you different products and services based on what you appear to be interested in.
