Other tracking technology

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. Other technologies such as web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"), often use tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier which enables a company to track users who visit websites or open e-mails which are sent to them. We don't currently use this type of technology in relation to visitors to our Website. If we do use this type of technology, we will let you know by updating this Cookie Policy.

We may change this Cookie Policy from time to time to reflect changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons.
