        4. Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to Our Site(s). This enables Us to personalise Our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
        5. Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to Our Site(s), the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make Our Site(s) more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
        6. Advertising cookies.
          1. AppNexus
            1. This is a technology platform (Platform or AppNexus Platform) that We use to buy, sell, and deliver online advertising, including interest-based advertising, mostly through real-time bidding. In other words, the AppNexus Platform does not itself buy, sell, or deliver ads, but provides technology that other companies use for those purposes. The AppNexus Platform is designed to enable other companies (their clients) to buy, sell, or deliver advertising using “Platform Data” that clients may collect using the Platform, derive from their use of the Platform, or acquire from other sources and then use on the Platform. For more information on AppNexus and its cookie policy, please visit: http://www.appnexus.com/en/company/cookie-policy
            2. You can click below to opt out of having the Platform used to select ads for your browser based on your online web browsing behaviour. When you opt-out, an opt-out cookie (from adnxs.com) will be stored in your web browser. The Platform will know the choice you have made when it sees your opt-out cookie, and will apply your choice to all companies’ use of the Platform. If you block or delete the opt-out cookie, the Platform will not see your choice. If you would like to refuse these AppNexus cookies at any time, please visit: http://www.appnexus.com/en/company/platform-privacy-policy#choices
            3. The opt-out cookie may not work if your browser is configured to block third-party cookies. If you delete your cookies, you will need to opt out again. There are browser plugins to help you preserve your opt-out cookies. For more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/PMC.
            4. The opt-out only applies to the browser in which you set it. For example, if you set the opt-out while using Firefox, but then use Chrome, the opt-out will not be active in Chrome. To opt out in Chrome, you will need to repeat the opt-out process.
            5. The opt-out does not block or delete cookies, or prevent the use of cookies or other technologies for purposes other than selecting ads based on your interests as inferred by your online behaviour. If you opt-out, data may still be collected about your web browsing activities and you will still see advertising. Ads may be selected, for example, based on the content of the web page in which they are shown. If you wish to block or delete cookies altogether, you can use web browser settings to do so.
            6. Please note that third parties (including, for example, providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which We have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.
            7. You block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of Our Site(s).
            8. To find out how to allow, block, delete and manage the cookies on all standard web browsers, please go to aboutcookies.org.
            9. If you use a Device to browse Our Site(s) or other sites that use cookies, please refer to your handset manual for guidance.
