COOKIES AND ID NUMBERS
 
When you visit our websites, you are initially given a "cookie", and your computer is assigned an ID number. A cookie is a commonly used device which stores information placed on a website in a storage place on your own computer. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information.

We use cookies to track your computer's usage patterns on our websites, and to enhance your visits to the websites. We also use cookies to collect and maintain aggregate website data (such as the number of visitors to a particular site) which helps us see which areas are popular with our users and which are not. It also enables us to recognise you when you return to our websites and store information about your preferences allowing us to customise our websites according to your individual interests. Among other things, this helps us improve the content and services on our websites and speed up searches.

If you don't like cookies, your web browser includes an option that allows you not to accept them. Rejecting cookies will however make browsing our websites a less enjoyable experience because the websites are not able to recognise you and your preferences for information. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you log on to our site.  The cookie file cannot retrieve information from other cookie files, nor any other information from your computer or personal device.

Once you have visited our websites and accepted our cookies, your ID number is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf our websites. Despite the fact that you remain anonymous until you enter personal information in the site, the ID number allows us to log your session, enabling us to better assist you should you need some individualised service or support. Once you enter personal information on a site, we associate your ID number with your contact information so we can recognise you on a future visit. We also use it to keep track of your "hot buttons" (information that appears to be of personal interest to you).

We may collect and report to third parties (such as advertisers and our creative agencies) aggregate depersonalised or anonymised statistics about our users in terms of numbers, traffic patterns and related site information.
