We use ‘Cookies’ on our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and allows us to improve our site for our users.


A cookie is a small text file containing letters and numbers that we store in your browser or on the hard drive of your computer.


We use cookies for a number of reasons:

  1. Essential and  Functionality Cookies

These allow us to ensure that our site works properly for our users. For example: that the search functionality acts correctly; that your preferences are remembered across the site, and that you know you are logged in to your account as you move from page to page.

  1. Performance Cookies

With these cookies we are able to record how you use our website and make sure we update it to be as useful as possible for our users.  
We are able to look at this data and analyse statistics such as how long people are spending on a particular page, how quickly they leave the site or which pages they most often view next.


There are two different types of cookies:
Session cookies – these are temporary and are erased when you close your browser at the end of your browsing session. The next time you visit that particular site it will not recognise you and will treat you as a completely new visitor as there is nothing in your browser to let the site know that you have visited before.

Persistent cookies – these remain on your hard drive until you erase them or they expire. How long a cookie remains on your browser depends on how long the visited website has programmed the cookie to last.


You block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
