What are Cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of information which include a unique reference code that a website transfers to your device to store and sometimes track information about you. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web session (“session cookies”) and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies are used, for example, to remember you when you return to the site and will last for longer (“persistent cookies”). Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They are uniquely assigned to your device and are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit (if they last longer than a web session) or to another website that recognises that cookie.
What Types of Cookies Do We Use?
Strictly Neccessary Cookies
These are cookies that are required for the operation of our site. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our site.
These are used to recognise you and your preferences when you return to our site. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences, such as color theme, language, and even your cookie preferences.
They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
