Advertising & Remarketing Cookies
Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.
You can learn more about online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com . You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices although we would prefer that you didn't as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won't see adverts, just simply that they won't be tailored to you any longer.
You may notice that sometimes after visiting a site you see increased numbers of adverts from the site you visited. This is because advertisers, including ourselves pay for these adverts. The technology to do this is made possible by cookies and as such we may place a so called “remarketing cookie” during your visit. We use these adverts to offer special offers etc to encourage you to come back to our site. Don't worry we are unable to proactively reach out to you as the whole process is entirely anonymised. You can opt out of these cookies at anytime as explained above.

FR (expires 3 months) – .facebook.com
1P_JAR (expires 1 month) – Google Advertising cookie used for user tracking and targeting purposes.
CONSENT (expires 19 years) – Google Advertising cookie used for user tracking and targeting purposes.
_GCL_AW (expires 3 months) – When auto-tagging is enabled for your AdWords account, AdWords automatically generates a click ID when a user clicks on one of your ads, and appends it to your landing page URL (e.g via the GCLID query string parameter). When configured for AdWords, GTAG.JS extracts ad click information from the URL (e.g the value of the GCLID parameter), and stores it in first-party cookies named _GCL_AW scoped to your domain with a lifetime of 90 days.
The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device.
You can control and manage cookies in various ways. Please keep in mind that removing or blocking cookies can negatively impact your user experience and parts of our website may no longer be fully accessible.
