What  is a Cookie?

We use cookies to make our website easier to use. Cookies and similar technologies (collectively ‘cookies’) are files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to any internet enabled device – such as your computer, smartphone or tablet – when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies do lots of different and useful jobs, such as remembering your preferences, tracking your internet usage and generally improving your online experience.

Sometimes visitors to websites must also approve the use of cookies. The website uses the following cookies:

Necessary Cookies

These are cookies that are strictly necessary for the operation of a website. Without these cookies, the website won’t work properly. These cookies do not identify you as an individual.

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often. They may also show us which email or web page visitors clicked through from in order to visit our website.

Some of these are analytics cookies, set using third party web analytics software, which allow us to monitor our website traffic. For example, we use Google Analytics to help us do this. These analytics cookies may also show us how many of our visitors are male or female, and may summarize the number of visitors who fall within certain age ranges, or certain interest categories. However, this sort of information is not linked to any individual; it just shows us what percentage of our visitors fall in particular categories. These cookies do not identify you as an individual.

Functionality Cookies

These cookies allow our website to remember the choices you make (such as, language or the region you are in) to provide a more personalized online experience. These cookies may also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customize. If you do not accept these cookies, it may affect the performance and functionality of the website and may restrict access to content on the website.
