This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help us customize your experience. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them.
Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things including your user preferences. Think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognize you when you come back and respond appropriately.
On our Site, you may encounter the following types of cookie:
Site performance cookies
Anonymous analytics cookies
Third party advertising cookies
This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on the Company’s website, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include:
Volume settings for our video player
Whether you see new content first
Video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser
Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organization generates an “anonymous analytics cookie.” These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
Unless you are signed in to the Site, we cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page. If you are logged in, we will also know the details you gave to us for this, such as your username and email address.
These cookies are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and we only use it to help target our content – such as whether you see a country specific home page – and advertising.
When you register with us, we generate cookies that let us know whether you are signed in or not. Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post with your username. If you have not selected “keep me signed in”, your cookies get deleted when you either close your browser or shut down your computer. While you are signed into either of the sites, we combine information from your registration cookies with analytics cookies, which we could use to identify which pages you have seen.
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the Options or Preferences menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or you can use the Help option in your browser for more details.
If you are primarily concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can turn these off by going to the Your Online Choices site.
You can also visit the trade body representing these advertising platforms for more information: Network Advertising Initiative.
