2. What Cookies Do We Use?
Below we list the different types of cookies that may be used on the Sites. The Sites use both 1st party cookies (which are set by the Sites being visited) and 3rd party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of our Sites).
2.1. Required or Essential Cookies
2.2. Functionality Cookies
(Example: language setting cookies) These cookies are used to enable certain additional functionality on our websites, such as storing your preferences (e.g. username and language selection) and preventing users from taking the same survey multiple times. This functionality improves user experience.
2.3. Preference Cookies
(Example: RTP Cookies - customizing content) Preference cookies collect information about your choices and preferences, and allow us to remember language or other local settings and customize the Sites accordingly.
2.4. Social Media Cookies
(Example: Facebook/Google Plus using social media for behavioral advertising, analytics, advertising and market research) Social media cookies collect information about social media usage.
2.5. Analytics Cookies
(Example of third party cookie: Google Analytics) Analytics cookies collect information about your use of the Sites and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Sites, help us record any difficulties you have with the Sites, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. This allows us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Sites, rather than the usage of a single person. We use the information to analyse the Sites' traffic.
2.6. Targeting or Advertising cookies

Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
