What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file which is transferred to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies enable your browser to be recognised by the website.

They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit, through a “session cookie”, or for multiple repeat visits, using a “persistent cookie”. They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in.

Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting known as “first party cookies”, or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website, known as “third party cookies”.

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work.
  • Analytical/Performance Cookies: these cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
