A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website. We use session cookies to keep track of visitors’ browsing behaviour whilst navigating the website.

Some of the information stored is obtained by cookies set by other companies whose software we have added to the site (third party cookies), and this can also impact your experience of other websites you may visit after leaving ours.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date. You can use your browser settings to prevent the setting of cookies, but your experience of our website may be altered and the site may not function as intended.
