What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when visiting a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.
Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise your device and settings. Find out more information at All About Cookies.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like making a website work, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.
We use three types of cookies:
Essential cookies: These cookies make our website work. We do not require your consent for these as they are strictly necessary to provide our website as a service over the internet. The essential cookies that we use on our website are mainly for security, de-bugging, identification and network management.
Session cookies: These are temporary and are erased when you close your browser.
Persistent cookies: These aid the functioning of our website and aid with user recognition.
Additional marketing, functional and analytics cookies may be used to enhance your experience on our website. Because we require your consent to store these non-essential cookies, you will be met with a cookies policy banner when first using our site. The ‘settings’ link on the cookies policy banner will allow you to enable these.
We utilise services provided by third parties. These are explored further in this policy.
