This information may be used to help us to improve, administer and diagnose problems with our Site and server. Our Site may also use other technical methods to track visitor usage, including web beacons. (“Web beacons” are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of a website.)

6. Third Party Cookies
Some Cookies that have been set on our Site may not be related to or controlled by us. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, Twitter or Facebook, these service providers may set their own Cookies on your web browser. We do not control the use of these Cookies and cannot access them due to the way that Cookies work, as Cookies can only be accessed by the party which originally set them. You should check the third party websites for more information about these Cookies.
Advertising: We use third parties to help us serve advertising Cookies on our Site. Advertising Cookies help us see whether users who viewed an ad on our Site later visited the advertiser’s site. Also, our advertising partners may use a Cookie to determine whether we have shown an ad and how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interact with ads. Please read our advertising partners’ privacy policies to ensure you agree with their privacy practices.
Analytics: we use the Google Analytics web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) to collect anonymous traffic data relating to our Site to help us analyse how users use it and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The information stored in the cookie is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States and then used to evaluate visitors’ use of our website and to compile statistical reports on website activity for us. For further information on the privacy of Google Analytics data please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
