We may place cookies on Our Website. Cookies are small files downloaded to your computer. Cookies help us to ensure the safety and smooth functionality of Our Website (security cookies and session cookies) and to collect information about web pages you are interested in, as well as the navigation you choose through Our Website, in order to make Our Website more attractive for you (tracking cookies and advertising cookies; see below).
You can disable cookies or set your browser to alert you when cookies are being sent (If you’d like to learn more about cookies in general and how to manage them, visit http://www.aboutcookies.org/, please note that we can’t be responsible for the content of external websites).

a. Google Analytics
Our Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). We may also use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to get an idea of visitor demographics and interests. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computers, to help Our Website operators analyze how you use Our Website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of Our Website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
On Our Website, IP anonymization has been activated. The IP addresses of Google users will be shortened. Only in exceptional cases will a complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the website for its users, in order to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage for website operators.
Furthermore, users can prevent the collection of data about their use of the website (including their IP address) generated by the cookie, and the processing of data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in through the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
Our Website also uses Twitter, a social media service. Twitter uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computers, to the track where you see Twitter content across the web setting in your Personalization and data settings. If you have this setting disabled or are in the European Union or EFTA States, Twitter will not store or use such web page visits to improve your experience in the future. If we’ve previously stored your web browsing history, your experience may continue to be personalized based on information already inferred from that history.
c. Google Maps
Our Website also uses Google Maps, a web mapping service from Google. Google Maps uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computers, to store preferences and user information each time they visit web pages on Our Website containing geographical maps of Google Maps. These cookies contain sufficient information to allow tracking. They are used only on pages where there is the Google map present.
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. We also use them to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of our digital advertising campaigns. They are placed by third party advertising networks on our behalf and with our permission. They remember that you have visited Our Website and this is shared with other organisations such as media owners.
