Cookies


“Cookies” are small text files that store basic information that a website can use to recognise repeat site visits (such as recalling your name if this had previously been supplied). You should be aware that information and
data may be automatically collected through the use of Cookies and we may use cookies to tailor the content of the website, to fit the needs of visitors who have accessed the site previously, and help us to improve the
user experience.


There are two types of cookies that we use on our website; persistent cookies and session cookies.

  • A persistent cookie remains on your device after you have visited a website. These help us to identify you as a unique visitor however they do not contain information that could be used to identify you to another person.
  • A session cookie is temporary that only exists in the period you access the website (or more strictly, until you close the browser after accessing the website). Session cookies remember what you chose on the previous page, therefore avoiding the need to re-enter information and thereby improving your experience. These cookies do not contain personal information and cannot be used to identify you.

Cookies do not attach to your system and damage your files. If you do not want information collected through the use of Cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the Cookie
feature. Note, however, that “personalised” services may be affected if the cookie option is disabled.
