Third-party tracking

We allow third-party behavioural tracking to collect usage data. This helps us target our advertising on other websites to your interests at our website.

If your web browser is configured to allow third-party cookies and you haven’t opted out of specific advertising cookies on our site, your browser will receive a targeting cookie. The cookie can be read by our ad delivery partners to target your browser with ads about us when you visit other websites. This helps us to remind you about what we have to offer.

You can opt-out of advertising cookies used by our site, including those used for behavioural ad tracking, by configuring your web browser to block third-party cookies or install web browser extension programs, which block trackers and third-party cookies, though doing so can have an impact on some site features.

If you block tracking cookies, it means that the ads you see about us on other sites will not be targeted to you based on information gathered about your browsing behaviour. You may still see non-targeted ads about us, on other sites.
