Introduction

Our website uses cookies and we are required to provide information to users about those cookies. The purpose of this notice is to set out what cookies we use and how you can manage your preferences.

What are cookies?     

A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer or device when you visit a website.  Cookies are used by all websites and have several different functions. They are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device. They will also:

  • Allow the site to work properly and help keep it secure

  • Help you navigate between pages efficiently

  • Help us understand how people use the website

  • Make the site easier to use by remembering information that you've entered

  • Improve your experience by showing you information that's relevant to you​

  • Cookies may not contain any information that personally identifies a user, however, personal data that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

  • Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies. A persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date.  A session cookie will expire at the end of the user session, i.e. when the web browser is closed.

 

Types of cookies

Strictly necessary cookies

  • These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided.

 

Performance cookies (Analytics)

  • These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often. They don’t collect information that identifies a visitor - all information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how our website works.

 

Customisation cookies

  • These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, these cookies can be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for, such as watching a video, or to remember information that you have already provided on previous visits to our website.

 

Targeting cookies

  • These cookies are used to deliver adverts that are more relevant to you and your interests. Targeting cookies may be placed by third parties with whom we have a relationship, such as advertising networks and are usually linked to site functionality provided by the third party organisation. The third party organisation may set their own cookies which are controlled by them and covered by their own policies.

Managing cookies

You can manage your cookie preferences in your Internet Browsers. Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies and to delete cookies. The methods for doing so vary from browser to browser, and from version to version.

 

Some browsers include a feature known as ‘Do Not Track’ or DNT. This allows you to indicate a preference that websites should not track you. However, whilst DNT is available in many browsers, websites are not required to recognise its request, so it may not always work. You can get help on how to use DNT in Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. Internet Explorer has a feature called Tracking Protection Lists which allows you to import a list of websites you want to block.
