Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
We use the following types of cookies on our service:
Strictly necessary cookies - These are cookies that are required for the operation of our service. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into your account.
Analytical/performance cookies - These cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
Functionality cookies - These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to log you in between sessions.
Targeting cookies - These cookies record a user's visit to a website, the individual pages visited and the links followed. If the cookie is set by a third party (for example, an advertising network) which also monitors traffic on other websites, this type of cookies may also be used to track a user's movements across different website and to create profiles of their general online behaviour. Information collected by tracking cookies is commonly used to serve users with targeted online advertising.

We, and third party services we use, may track you in order to prevent fraud and dangerous or inappropriate behaviour on our service. We do not provide exact details of the techniques used, as this information would allow problem users to circumvent these measures, and would therefore put genuine users at risk. Where we use such techniques we will only use them for the purposes described above.
