Cookies are used on our site to ensure that we give you the best experience. If you continue without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on our website.
Some cookies are essential, so you can move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, some services can’t be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet.
What are cookies and how do they work?
Cookies are small bits of text that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Your internet browser sends these cookies back to the website every time you visit the site again, so it can recognise you and can then tailor what you see on the screen.
Some of the cookies we use
Certain cookies are necessary in order for you to use our websites. These are used ‘in-session’ and they are downloaded to your computer each time you visit and then expire when you leave the website. They are not stored on your computer and they don’t contain any personal data. However, you can delete them via your browser if you wish to, but this will restrict the functions that you’re able to carry out on our sites.
The information we obtain through using cookies will not usually contain your personal data. Although we may obtain information about your computer (or electronic device) such as your IP address, your browser and/or other internet log information, this will not usually identify you personally. In certain circumstances we may collect personal information about you, but only where you voluntarily provide it, for example – by completing an online form.
We like to keep track of what pages and links are popular and which ones don’t get used so much to help us keep our sites relevant and up to date. It’s also very useful to be able to identify trends of how people navigate our website and help us provide a more informative or useful website to our customers.
