Cookie Statement

This cookie statement is designed to help you understand more about how cookies work and how we use them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small file containing a line of text that is sent and stored on your computer when you visit a web site. Cookies help to provide a better and faster experience by helping a website remember information about your visit to make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you.

We use cookies for many purposes. Cookies are set by us and also by some of our partners (for example advertisers), as detailed below. Some or all of the cookies identified below may be stored in your browser.

Our Cookies

The types of cookies we use all fall into one of four categories:

1. Strictly Necessary and Functional
You need these cookies for our websites to work properly. For example, if the website is only permitted to function in certain geographic areas, you’ll need a cookie to enable you to access it or these cookies support the function of certain operations on our sites or services; for example, we use a music radio cookie to enable you to listen to any of our audio streams.

If you delete or block these cookies, some of the features on our site may not work effectively or at all.

2. Performance and analytics
These cookies allow us to understand how our visitors engage with our websites and apps, for example count the total amount of page visits and sources of traffic so that we can measure and improve the performance of our sites and apps. They also enable us to understand how users without personally identifying visitors, on an anonymised aggregated basis, use our sites.

This cookie will never collect information in a way that could identify you personally, unless you are a signed in registered VIP (see Section 4 below).

3. Personalisation and Advertising
These cookies allow us to provide a high-quality experience by customising the content that we offer you across our sites.

We might use the information collected by these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on the articles and other content you have viewed when visiting any of our websites.

They enable us to deliver to you relevant advertising (our own and that of our Partners) on our websites and in our mobile apps. We also use these cookies to inform us when we have shown you an advert, to ensure we do not show you the same content too often.

Cookie choices

When you first visit this site, or the first time you visit after you have deleted our cookies from your device, you will be presented with a notice informing you that our sites use cookies. That notice will include a link to this statement. If you continue to use the site after being presented with that notice, we will assume that you are happy with our use of cookies as described here unless you opt-out.

How other companies’ cookies are used

We allow certain third parties to set and access cookies on your computer. These companies’ use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policy and cookie policy.
