A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies through your browser and the cookie control on our website.
The cookies we use
The cookies we use are divided into 4 main categories:
- Strictly necessary cookies
- Functional cookies
- Analytics cookies
- Advertising cookies
Changing your cookie preferences
You can change your cookie preferences any time by visiting the cookie settings controls, and then toggling on/off the cookie categories presented (please note that you cannot manage the ‘Strictly necessary cookies’ as these are required to make the website operate properly, but you can manage these within your browser if required - please consult your browser documentation for how to do this).
When you change your cookie preferences, the system will no longer run scripts within that category, and in doing so will attempt to delete the relevant cookies. Please note that some cookies might remain, but as the scripts which set them (on previous consent) will no longer run - they will no longer be able to read or process the cookie-related information from your device.
If you specifically want to delete cookies set by third parties that you previously accepted, then you can do this via the controls in your browser (please consult your browser documentation for how to do this).
The cookies that are used within each category are presented below.
