What are cookies and pixel tags?
‘Cookies’ are short strings of text sent to your web browser when you visit a website, which may be "session-only" or "persistent" last for more than one visit to allow a visitor to personalise their experience.
‘Similar technologies’ refer to features which perform a comparable function to cookies although they are technically different.
‘Pixel tags’ are small blocks of code on webpages or in our emails that allow us to read and set cookies. Pixel tags are often used in connection with cookies to help operate our websites and emails, and collect information about online activity.

Some newer web browsers incorporate "Do Not Track" features. At this time, our websites may not respond to "Do Not Track" requests or headers from these browsers.
