Our cookies come from two sources: Google Analytics and Hotjar
Google Analytics is widely used across the web. Google collects anonymised data from individual visits to our Site. We use this data to understand relevant topics such as which page you arrive at, how you navigate around our Site and the type of device you are using. We also monitor performance metrics such as how many visitors are using our Site and how many pages they visited.
Hotjar data is also anonymised and shows us the step-by-step path that visitors are taking through our Site and other information such as the exit points from different pages. We use Hotjar data to ensure that the design of our Site will allow visitors to find relevant information quickly and easily.
Third party cookies
We do not currently use other cookies to record your interactions on our Site. So when you visit other parts of the web you will never receive targeted or ‘reminder based’ advertising from us.
