Cookie Policy


What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your browser. They’re used for many things, such as remembering whether you’ve visited the site before, so that you remain logged in – or to help us work out how many new website visitors we get each month.

They contain information about the use of your computer but don’t include personal information about you (they don’t store your name, for instance).

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

This policy explains how cookies are used on our websites in general and how you can control the cookies that may be used on this site (please note that not all of them are used on every site).
