If you wish to reject our cookie, you can decline our request, in which case you may not be able to use the Site or some parts of it. Additionally you can configure your browser to do so, or you can ask your internet browser to alert you when a cookie is being set up. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track traffic flows.
We use the following cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Site. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Site, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.
- Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of users and to see how users move around our Site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our Site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

In addition to cookies, we use analytic software to identify potential clients and business opportunities. When you consent to us using cookies this consent will include the use of analytic software.
Our analytic software does not work in the same way as a cookie but it performs the same function as an analytical or performance cookie. It works by adding an extra line of code to our website which means that when the website is accessed, and the temporary file stored by your computer, it can provide us with information about the IP address and visitor to our website.
The information our analytic software collects may include business contact details, website addresses and a description of how you have used our website, but works only in relation to businesses. We will not be able to obtain the names or details of individuals.
We use the information we collect to understand how our website is used and follow visitor trends. We may also use the information for business-to-business marketing purposes, for example contacting a business which has been identified to provide them with further information or offers. We will not make this information available to any organisation outside our group of companies.
