What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that websites store on your computer when you visit them. They are a well-known web technology; widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to website owners such as to remember a user and identify when that user returns to the website.

How we Assign Cookies
We have classified cookies under two broad titles, "essential cookies" and "non-essential cookies".
These are explained in more detail below.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
How long do Cookies stay on my Computer or Mobile device?
Session cookies: These only last until you close your browser. They are usually used to track the pages that you visit so that information can be customised for you for that particular visit.
Session cookies generally make it possible to navigate through the website smoothly.
Persistent cookies: These are stored on your computer or mobile device until you delete them, or they reach their expiry date. These may, for example, be used to remember your preferences when you use the site.
