Cookie Policy

Our Cookie Policy has been developed to explain how we use cookies on our website, and to demonstrate our firm commitment to protecting the privacy of your data.

The first time that you visit our website, we notify you about our use of cookies through a notification banner. By continuing to use the website, you consent to our use of cookies as described in this Cookie Policy. However, you can choose whether or not to continue accepting cookies at any later time. Information on how to control and delete cookies is set out later in this Cookie Policy.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of information used to identify your computer which are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive when you access a website. The cookies are then sent back to the website on each subsequent visit, allowing the site to provide its online services. Cookies contain basic information about your internet use, but they do not normally identify you personally.

Cookies can be Session Cookies or Persistent Cookies. Session cookies allow a website to link a user’s series of actions during one browser session. Session cookies expire after a browser session and are therefore not stored on your computer afterwards. Persistent cookies are stored on a user’s computer between browser sessions and can be used to record a user’s website preferences, such as language or font size.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser's settings to prevent that if you wish. However, disabling cookies would prevent you from using some of our services.

How to control and delete cookies

If you wish to restrict or block the cookies, you can do this through your browser settings. The Help function within your browser should tell you how. For information on how to do this on the browser of your mobile phone you will need to refer to your handset manual.

Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact on the functionality of our website.

Cookies used on this website

Analytics cookies

These cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where visitors have come to the site from and the pages they visited.
Some of the cookies set for this purpose are automatically removed from your device once you close your browser. Others may last for a period of up to 24 months from your last visit to our site.

We do allow Google to use this data to collate and aggregate benchmarking data, which they provide to us, about similar websites in our industry. To do this Google further anonymises the analytics data by removing all identifiable information about our website, and combines the data with hundreds of other anonymous sites in comparable industries.

We do not share our analytics data with any other third parties.
To opt out of our use of Google Analytics you may wish to consider using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

This cookie will be used to save information entered in the application form fields after user clicks “Save form for later” button. This is a persistent cookie that expires in two weeks.
