2. Performance Cookies

In most cases, the information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works and to help us to identify issues you may have when using our online services. 

These cookies are not used to target you with online advertising. Without these cookies we can't learn how our website is performing and make relevant improvements that could better your browsing experience.

3. Targeting/Advertising Cookies

These cookies and similar technologies gather information about your browsing habits. They remember that you've visited a website and share this information with other organisations, such as advertisers and platforms on which we advertise. They do this in order to provide you with ads that are more relevant to you and your interests. Although these cookies and similar technologies can track your visits to other websites, they don't usually know who you are.

Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.
