These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of hSo websites and make use of embedded forms.
Most web browsers are set to automatically accept these cookies as the default setting. If you do not want to receive these cookies you can block them by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies.

These optional cookies help us and our suppliers better understand your use and experience of our website(s) and your engagement with our marketing efforts. For example, cookies could help us see whether you’re a repeat visitor to an hSo website, how long you spent on our site, and the path you took through our site.
In practice, much of this data will be aggregated with that of other website visitors to provide more general insights, such as average session length, the percentage of website visitors who are repeat visitors, and the typical ‘conversion rate’ of specific web pages.
If you visit our websites, we may indicate to our marketing suppliers that we would like the option to show ads to you in the future.
When visiting hSo web sites, many of the cookies are set by our marketing suppliers. Further details on these suppliers and their privacy policies can be found here.
