About Cookies

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added, and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically; however, you have the ability to accept, delete or disable cookies at any time; the process to do this can usually be found in your internet browser’s ‘Help’ menu. You can find out more information about cookies and instructions on how to adjust your browser’s settings here.

If you disable cookies then, whilst you may be able to browse our site, some of the cookies we use may be essential for the site to operate and some features may therefore not be available to you. Unless you have adjusted your browser settings so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon as you visit our site.

If you want to find out a bit more about cookies, you can have a bit more of a read here.

What types of cookies are there?
There are two types of cookies:

First-party cookies – these are created by the site you are visiting.

Third-party cookies – these are created by other sites that may own some of the content, like images you may see on the webpage you visit.

What cookies are we using?
Session cookies – These allow us to recognise you and carry information as you navigate between pages during a single browser session and allow you to use the website most efficiently. They generally expire when you leave our website.

Persistent cookies – These allow us to remember you, for example if you’ve previously accepted using cookies in the past. These remain as a file even after you have left the website.

Traffic log cookies – These identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Google analytics – This is so we know how many people went to our website and how effective it currently is. This collects information in an anonymous form. You may disable Google Analytics through the add-on for your browser: please see the Google Analytics Data Privacy & security website for more information.

Our sites also contain links to third party sites (including social media bookmarking buttons which enable you to share certain content on our sites). Please review the cookie and privacy policies of these sites to understand how they may use cookies and your information.

Links to Other Websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
