As with many websites, we also use Adobe Flash Player to deliver video content to you. Adobe utilise their own cookies also known as Flash Cookies, which are not manageable through your browser settings but are used by the Flash Player for similar purposes, such as storing preferences or tracking users.

However, please be aware that should you choose to disable cookies it may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website and some of the website may fail to work. For example: if you do not consent to Functionality cookies, we wouldn’t be able to remember which geographical location you are from and would not be able to serve you relevant recipes and content for your location.

When someone visits our website we collect standard internet log information. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the website. We collect this information in a way which does not identify anyone.
We also allow cookies to be set by a number of independent measurement and research companies. These companies read and write their own cookies onto your devices. For example, these cookies are used to track the adverts and keep count of the number of times that each advert is viewed by users. We use this type of information to help improve the services the website provides to you.
