Our website uses cookies to give you the best website experience possible, for example, by storing filters and information about your browsing in order to display content which we think will be of interest to you.

1.    What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to your device when you visit a website. The information they collect is sent back to our systems as you move around our website. Cookies act as a website’s memory so the website remembers your device when you return.  Cookies are unique to the web browser you’re using, so different data is collected for your desktop computer to your mobile device.  

Where you have previously identified yourself on that device and browser, for example, by filling in a quote request, sailing CV or signing up to marketing activity and not deleted your cookies, we will link your browse data with the other data that we hold on you.

Cookies can be set by the owner of the website you’re on. These are known as first party cookies. There are also third party cookies, which are set by our partners. 

 

2.    What We Use Cookies For?

We use cookies for a number of reasons, but their primary aim is to ensure you have the best experience when visiting our site. To do this, we may use cookies for:
