Cookie data is stored by the website which collected it and by your device (located inside your web browser). You can access your cookie data from within your browser settings, for instructions please see this helpful cookie guide.
We use both first and third-party cookies on our website. We have outlined the types of cookie and their purpose below:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our web sites and use features, such as accessing secure areas of the site. Without these cookies, services like enabling appropriate content based on your type of device cannot be provided.
These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use our websites, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies any individual. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a web site works.

RHA engage in online advertising to keep our users up to date on news and to help find the right products on other websites.
We target banners and ads to users when visiting other websites and apps. RHA use a range of digital marketing networks and advertising such as:
- Web Beacons
- Ad Tags
- Custom Audience Services
- Other Specific Services Offered
Our banners and ads are based on anonymised information we hold about users, their previous use on the RHA website or if a user has clicked on one of our banners or ads.
We perform contextual prospecting which uses anonymous data and not the users details. A user is targeted by environment, not by user specific details i.e. not by using cookies to target an ad to a specific user, but targeting relevant content instead.
We may combine the information that we collect through the services with information that we receive from other sources, both online and offline, and use such combined information to improve your customer experience.
We may aggregate and/or anonymize any information collected through the Services so that such information can no longer be linked to a user or their device (“Aggregate/Anonymous Information”). RHA may use Aggregate/Anonymous Information for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes, and may also share such data with any third parties, including advertisers, promotional partners, and sponsors.
If you are interested in more information about tailored browser advertising in general and how you can generally control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored advertising, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out link, or Your Online Choices to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs.
RHA uses social media in accordance to each network’s privacy policies and details of private interactions on social media will not be shared without prior express consent from the individuals whose details are being requested.
As third-party platforms, individuals and brands interacting with RHA via social media maintain responsibility for abiding with platform guidelines and the views expressed by individuals (whether internally or externally) on social media do not represent RHA as a company.
