What are Cookies?

A Cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer or device. Each Cookie is unique to your web browser and contains an anonymous identifier so that a website can recognise you when you return using the same browser.

Most websites use Cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling the site to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘Session Cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘Persistent Cookie’).

Cookies do a variety of different jobs, like storing your preferences, remembering you are logged in and generally improving your user experience. If a website does not use Cookies, it will think you are a new user every time you visit.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘1st Party Cookies’) or they may be set by a 3rd party plugin / module or software used by the site you are viewing (‘3rd Party Cookies’).

Currently we operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that we assume you are happy with our use of Cookies. If you are not happy, then you should either not use this site, or you should delete our Cookies once you have visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari etc.)

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.
