Targeting and Advertising

The social media sharing functionality on certain web pages is provided by the third party AddThis. As you navigate these pages or if you use the sharing buttons, AddThis will automatically set cookies. We have no control over the cookies that AddThis uses. You can opt out of addthis.com cookies at http://www.addthis.com/privacy/opt-out. We sometimes advertise our products, services and vacancies on third party websites such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google and Bing. To help us target our advertising we use cookies from those third parties on our websites to tell us which pages you clicked on and interacted with. Each third party uses its own tracking cookies. If you don’t want to be shown targeted advertising, some third party sites allow you to request not to see messages from specific advertisers. These third party cookies are not under our control so you should check the websites and cookie policies of any third parties.

It will be used to send information such as your IP address, when each email was viewed, from what device and which geo-location. We use information about email usage to compile reports and to help us improve our communications. Our websites may also collect your IP address which is routinely stored as part of web server log files for 14 days.
