What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.

Cookies are incredibly useful, and are used to help create the best user experience possible as they let you navigate between pages efficiently, remember your preferences and generally improve your browsing experience.

We use cookies to ensure that our website is as user friendly as possible and DO NOT use targeting or functionality cookies, which some websites use for advertising purposes.

The cookies we use have been categorised based on the categories found in the ICC UK Cookie guide. A list of all the cookies used by category is set out below.

Functionality

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also 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 or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
