What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. They help that website remember information about your visit, which can both make it easier to visit the site again and make the site more useful to you. Cookies are widely used by businesses to make their websites work (or work more efficiently), as well as to provide reporting information on the website’s use. Cookies set by the website owner are called “first-party cookies”. These cookies are usually used to identify a user between pages, remember selected preferences and track website behaviour patterns. You can hardly find a website nowadays that does not use first-party cookies. Cookies set by anyone other than the website owner are called “third-party cookies”. Third-party cookies are mostly used to track users between websites and display more relevant ads between websites. They may also be used to support chat functionality provided by a third party service.

You can choose to accept all cookies or customise which cookies you would like to enable and disable. Essential cookies cannot be disabled as they are necessary to provide you with website services. If you do not wish to allow essential cookies you should stop using our website immediately.

We may also use other tracking technologies such as web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphic files that contain a unique identifier that enables us to recognise when someone has visited our website or opened an email including them. This allows us to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another and therefore understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisement, social media platform or email marketing campaign as examples. This helps us to measure the success of our marketing campaigns – these also rely on cookies to function properly.
