Cookie policy

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by letting that website ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). Cookies are actually very helpful and less intrusive than you might think. For example, please be aware that our cookies are unable to collect any personal data such as your name, address or phone numbers and cannot damage your computer or mobile device.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page it won’t recognise you and it won’t be able to keep you logged in.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

Please find some advice and links below to help you:

  1. First, check which browser / browsers you use to view websites. For example, you might use Google Chrome, Internet Explorer or Apple’s Safari browsers.
  2. Find out how to control Cookies in that browser – usually via a “settings” menu option.  For example in Google Chrome this is found at: chrome://settings/content
  3. Change your Cookie settings as you prefer – that’s it!

By accepting cookies or using any part of the site beyond the home page, you consent to the use of cookies. We will use a cookie to remember your preference (so that we don’t bother you with this question next time you visit).  Please be aware that disabling cookies may prevent you from using all the features in our websites.
