Cookie Policy

We use cookies to help improve our services and help reach those that may need them.

This website uses essential functional (session) cookies, which do not identify you in any way.

If you are concerned you have the option to disable cookies in your browser (see below). However it is totally unnecessary and may affect some of the functionality and your experience when using our site.

What are cookies and how do we use them?

Cookies are harmless pieces of information stored on your computer. They are not spyware or malware.

They create a unique, randomly generated code that enables us to retain information as you move from page to page on our site and the cookie automatically “dies” at the end of the session.

We use cookies in conjunction with Google Analytics and other platforms listed below to track the sources from which visitors enter our site (e.g. from a Google search) and to identify the most popular pages and improvements that may be made to them.

This information is completely anonymous and cannot be traced back to you in any way.

How do you enable or disable cookies?

In most browsers, you need to look under Settings, then Privacy. There is normally a tick box or similar where you can enable or disable cookies. You can also enable them per site. Some browsers have privacy settings such as high, medium and low privacy protection.

Facebook Pixels

Our web pages use a Facebook pixel to collect data on visitor behaviour, such as:

  • which pages are visited
  • which device was used to view the website

This information may be used to serve relevant Facebook ads in future. It cannot identify your personal information to us.

Hotjar

We use Hotjar to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize our service and their experience. Hotjar is a technology service that gives us data on how much time users spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and do not like, etc. We use this feedback to improve our online experience.

Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behaviour and their devices and stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymized user profile, whereby you cannot be identified individually to us. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on our behalf.

Linked In

The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of data regarding Linked In members’ visits to our website.

LinkedIn does not share your personal data with us, it only provides reports (which do not identify you) about our website audience and ad performance. Linked In also provides retargeting for website visitors, enabling us to show personalised ads off its website by using this data, but without identifying you. We also use data that does not identify you to improve ad relevance. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes.
