What are cookies?
A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We use both "session" cookies and "persistent" cookies on our websites. We will use the session cookies to: keep track of you whilst you navigate the website; and to monitor user behaviour for statistical and marketing purposes. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit; Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
We also include social media buttons on this site, such as Facebook 'like' buttons, Twitter 'tweet' buttons, or Google +1 buttons. These set cookies to remember that you've clicked the button so you're not prompted to click it again next time you visit.
