Necessary cookies are essential for the website to function properly and cannot be disabled without severely affecting the usability of the website. The law does not require us to ask consent to use these cookies and they will always be placed when you use our website. Functional cookies remember various choices you make on the website to improve your experience. They are used to display recommendations based on your past activity on the website. Functional cookies may be required for actions such as watching a video. Any Personal Data that these cookies collect is anonymized before being used for any other purpose, so we do not keep records of your data or track you personally, or monitor how you browse on other websites. Analytics cookies gather anonymous data on how visitors use the website like what pages are most visited, and how long visitors stay on them as well as what device and operating system you are using. They also gather information on errors that may occur during visits, which helps us to fix them. Managing cookies: most web browsers allow you to manage which cookies you accept via their settings. You can normally use the ‘Help’ functionality on your browser to find out about how it handles cookies and how you can manage your cookie preferences. Some of our marketing emails to you may include a unique URL. If you click that URL (link), then we may measure your responsiveness to our communications on different subjects.

We only retain Personal Data identifying you for as long as you have a relationship with us, or as is required by applicable law. We have a data retention policy that sets out the different periods we retain data in respect of relevant purposes in accordance with our duties under Data Protection Law. Personal Data we no longer need is securely disposed of and/or anonymized so you can no longer be identified from it.

We employ appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your Personal Data from being accessed by unauthorized persons and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage. We take all reasonable steps to protect Personal Data from external threats such as malicious software or hacking. There are always inherent risks in sending information by public networks or using public computers and we cannot guarantee 100% the security of all data sent to us (including Personal Data).
