What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file of letters and numbers that is sent to the hard drive of your computer, phone or tablet when you use our website (if you agree).  Each time you return to the same website, your browser retrieves and sends the relevant cookie(s) to the website’s server.  This enables websites to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

What cookies do we use?

  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with Google through the use of Google Analytics, as further explained below.
