What is a cookie?

A “cookie” is technology that allows the website to store tokens of information (an “identifier”) in your browser used by the website while you are on the website. Cookies are then sent back to the website on each subsequent visit, or to another webpage that recognises that cookie. Cookies are used in order to make the website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited the website before or whether you are a new visitor. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

When landing on this website, you have been given the opportunity to accept cookies used on this website, to accept certain categories of cookies and decline others, or to decline all cookies. If you have accepted our use of some or all cookies, the following information relates to cookies used on this website only.

There are two broad categories of cookies:

  • First party cookies, served directly by us to your device.
  • Third party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf.

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are “session cookies”, meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are “permanent cookies”, meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by the website to recognise your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.
