Cookie Notice

When you visit any web site, it may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies. Cookies are small text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded on your device when you visit a website. This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized web experience. Because we respect your right to privacy, you can choose not to allow some types of cookies.

Cookies set by the website owner (Us) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by other parties are called "third party cookies". Third-party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

There are different types of cookies.  Some cookies are “strictly necessary” which enable you to access and use our entertainment services.

We also use functional, performance and advertising cookies to make your experience more enjoyable. You can switch these on or off at any time and you can always change your mind. We’ll only use them if you have agreed to them.

The last type of cookie which may be used are those from other companies. These "third-party cookies" might track how you use different websites, including ours. For example, you might get a social media company’s cookie when you see the option to share something. You can turn them off, but not through us. 

How long do cookies last?

Some are erased when you close the browser on your website or app. Others stay longer, sometimes forever, and are saved onto your device so that they’re there when you come back.

We use the following types of cookies:

You can choose whether or not to accept cookies by activating a setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our Website however access to some functionality and areas of our Website may be restricted.

What about other tracking technologies?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Website (or opened an e-mail that we have sent them). This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Website to another, to deliver or communicate with Cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on Cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

Google Analytics

This Website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies or text files. These are saved on your computer and allow your usage of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your usage of this Website is generally sent to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this Website, your IP address is shortened by Google within the member states of the EU or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this Website to evaluate your usage of the Website, to compile reports about the Website activities and to perform further services connected to Website usage and Internet usage in its dealings with the Website operator. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined together with other data by Google.

You can prevent these cookies from being saved by making an appropriate setting in your browser software. However, you may then not be able to use all the Website's functions to their full extent.
