Cookies

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server. Only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier as well as the site name. You can read more about cookies on the About Cookies website.

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.

How are cookies used?
Cookies do lots of different jobs, including letting you navigate between pages efficiently and generally improving your experience of a website. Most websites you visit will use cookies to improve your user experience by enabling that website to “remember” you, either for the duration of your visit (using a “session cookie”) or for repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”).

If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a visiting the website for the first time every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page the website won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

How do we use cookies?
We use cookies to improve your browsing experience by doing things like:

  • Analysing web page traffic so we can improve our web site.

We also use them to maintain the security of our website, determining if you are logged in user, visitor or a bot, as well as identifying repeat visitors and allowing country blocking.

Accepting or Declining Cookies
When you first land on our website, we’ll show you a message to let you know that we use cookies, and to ask for your consent to store them on your device. You can disable cookies if you prefer within your internet browser settings. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website. To learn how to disable cookies we suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the About Cookies website which offers guidance for all modern browsers.
