Cookies & How We Use Them
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file placed on your computer’s hard drive. It enables our website to identify your computer as you view different pages on our website.
Cookies allow websites and applications to store your preferences in order to present content, options or functions that are specific to you. They also enable us to see information such as how many people use the website and what pages they tend to visit.
Analyse our web traffic using an analytics package – this website uses Google Analytics to aggregate usage data to help us improve the website structure, design, content and features.
Recognise you when you return to our website – to remember your preferences when returning to our site so you are not shown the email signup pop-up on return visits if you have previously dismissed this message.
Cookies do not provide us with access to your computer or any information about you, other than that which you choose to share with us.
However, please note that doing this may affect how our website functions. Some pages and services may become unavailable to you.
We are currently looking at a way that you can decline cookies directly from our website, but this is currently excessively expensive when we only take data for the purposes of analyzing traffic.
