We use cookies on our website, which amongst other things, help us to improve your experience of our website and to ensure that it performs as you expect it to. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit. They can improve your experience of using a website, for example, by remembering your preference settings and tracking your use of a website so that it can be improved to meet your needs. You can control your cookies settings using your website browser. See www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html to find out how.

The tables below explain what cookies we use on our website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary or another type of cookie e.g. “functionality” or “performance” cookies. We also state in the table whether a cookie is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. The difference is that:

Strictly necessary

Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to receive a service on a website. For example, cookies to operate online shopping baskets, do your internet banking or to comply with the law (e.g. such as to keep your information safe). We would not be able to operate our website without using the “strictly necessary” cookies listed below.

We currently do not use any strictly necessary cookies.

Performance

Performance cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. Any information collected by these cookies is anonymous. We only use such information to improve our website.

Functionality

Functionality cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your log in details) and customised preference settings (e.g. text size). They also enable enhanced, more personal features, e.g. a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by using a cookie to remember which region you are in. These cookies are also used to provide services you have asked for such as linking to your social media account. Information collected by “functionality” cookies may or may not be anonymised, but they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
