These cookies enable functions on our website and without them the website cannot function in the way you’d expect. Some of these functions include providing you access to secure areas of the website and providing search functionality.

Our website allows you to share our content on social networks (such as Facebook and Twitter). Cookies are set by AddThis which provides us with lots of sharing buttons in one package.
Visitor statistics cookies
These cookies collect information anonymously on how visitors are using our site (for example how long they spend on the site, what pages they look at etc.) and this helps us to understand how visitors interact with our website and improve the website accordingly. To do this we use a number of third party services including Google analytics and Opentracker.
These cookies track visitors across websites. This helps to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and therefore more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers. For this purpose we use services provided by DoubleClick (owned by Google).
