About Cookies

Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.

Cookies do a number of different jobs, such as enabling efficient navigation between pages, remembering preferences, and generally improving the user experience.

This page describes what information they gather, how we use it and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how to prevent these cookies from being stored, although this may downgrade or 'break' certain elements of the functionality of our website.

Performance Cookies
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies 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 a website works.

We use cookies provided by trusted third parties. The following section details which third party cookies you might encounter

Google Analytics cookies are used for helping us to understand how you use the site and ways that we can improve your experience. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit, to enable us to continue to produce engaging content.

  From time to time we test new features and make subtle changes to the way that the site is delivered. When we are testing new features, cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience whilst on the site, and providing information to understand which optimisations our users appreciate the most.

We also use social media buttons and/or plugins that allow you to connect with social media networks in various ways. For these to work, Twitter and Instagram will set cookies through our site, which may be used to enhance our profile on their site or contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies.

  • Login related cookies - We use cookies when you are logged in to any part of the site which requires this function, so that we can remember this fact.

  • Site preferences cookies - In order to provide the best user experience, we provide the functionality to set preferences for how this site runs when you use it. 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. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
