We like to keep track of what pages and links are popular and which ones don`t get used so much to help us keep our sites relevant and up to date. It`s also very useful to be able to identify trends of how people navigate (find their way through) our Website and if they get `error messages` from web pages.
This group of cookies, often called `analytics cookies` are used to gather this information. These cookies don`t collect information that identifies you. The information collected is anonymous and is grouped with the information from everyone else’s cookies. We can then see the overall patterns of usage rather than any one person’s activity. Analytics cookies only record activity on the site you are on and they are only used to improve how a website works.
Some of our websites and some of the emails you might get from us also contain small invisible images known as `web beacons` or `tracking pixels`. These are used to count the number of times the page or email has been viewed and allows us to measure the effectiveness of its marketing and emails. These web beacons are anonymous and don`t contain or collect any information that identifies you.
We also use `affiliate` cookies. Some of our web pages will contain promotional links to other companies’ sites. If you follow one of these links and then register with or buy something from that other site, a cookie is sometimes used to tell that other site that you came from one of our sites. That other site may then pay us a small amount for the successful referral. This works using a cookie.
