The types of cookies used

Indispensable cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the site and make full use of its features, such as accessing the various protected areas of the site. Without these cookies some services, such as browsing history, cannot be used.

Performance cookie

These cookies collect information on how users use a website, e.g. which pages are visited most and whether they receive error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. All information collected by cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. They are only used to improve the functioning of a website.

By using our site, you agree that such cookies may be installed on your device.

Functionality cookies

Cookies allow the site to remember choices you make (such as your name, language or region) and provide advanced personalised features. These cookies may also be used to remember changes you make to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services that the user has requested, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information collected by these types of cookies may be anonymised and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. By using our site, you agree that such cookies may be installed on your device.

Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are cookies set by a website other than the one you are currently visiting. For example, a third-party site might contain a Facebook 'Like' button. That button will set a cookie that can be read by Facebook. This is considered to be a third-party cookie.

Some advertisers use these types of cookies to track the user's visits to all the sites on which they offer their services. If a user feels that this tracking may be a source of concern and interference with his or her privacy, it is possible to disable third-party cookies through the management of web browser settings.

Note: Deactivation of third-party cookies may in some cases prevent tracking by advertisers, for more information see

For more information on tracking activities by advertisers, the use of third-party cookies on this site and their privacy policies, please refer to the following links:

The list of third parties is subject to updating.

Websites may use third-party cookies for purposes that are not necessarily related to privacy, and disabling them may interfere with the proper functioning of those sites.
