 What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is downloaded on to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are used by many websites and can do a number of things, e.g., remembering your preferences and counting the number of people looking at a website.

 How do we use Cookies?

We may use cookies on this Site for the following purposes:

  • Analytical purposes: Analytical cookies allow us to recognize, measure and track visitors to our Site. This helps us to improve and develop the way our Site works, for example, by determining whether Site visitors can find information easily, or by identifying the aspects of the Site that are of the most interest to them.
  • Usage preferences: Some of the cookies on our Site are activated when visitors to our Site make a choice about their usage of the Site. Our Site then ‘remembers’ the settings preferences of the user concerned. This allows us to tailor aspects of the Site to the individual user.
  • Terms and conditions: We use cookies on our Site to record when a Site visitor has seen a policy, such as this one, or provided consent, such as consent to the terms and conditions on our Site. This helps to improve the user’s experience of our Site – for example, it avoids a user from repeatedly being asked to consent to the same terms.
  • Session management: The software that runs our Site uses cookies for technical purposes needed by the internal workings of our servers. For instance, we use cookies to distribute requests among multiple servers, authenticate users and determine what features of the Site they can access, verify the origin of requests, keep track of information about a user’s session and determine which options or pages to display in order for the Site to function.
  • Functional purposes: Functional purpose cookies store information that is needed by our applications to process and operate. For example, where transactions or requests within an application involve multiple workflow stages, cookies are used to store the information from each stage temporarily, in order to facilitate completion of the overall transaction or request.
  • Third party cookies. When you visit our Site, you may receive cookies that are set by third parties. These cookies are used for the purposes described in the bullet points above. We do not control the setting of these third party cookies, so we suggest you might wish to check the third party websites for more information about their use of cookies and how to manage them.
