What Is A Cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information that is placed on your computer when you visit a website and persists until either your browser is closed or the cookie expiry date is reached.

What Cookies Do We Use?

We use essential cookies to make the site work functionally and to store your cookie consent. These are shown in the Essential Cookies section. We use non-essential cookies to analyse the use and performance of our website and may add 3rd party services to the site, such as live chat or for showing our tweets, which can create their own cookies on their domains too. These are listed in the Non-essential Cookies section.

Can You Turn Off Cookies & What Effect Does It Have?

You can switch off non-essential cookies by disabling each category that you wish to block in the non-essential cookies section. Switching off non-essential cookies may also mean that some 3rd party services may not work. We automatically turn off non-essential cookies if you have Do Not Track set in your browser settings. Alternatively your browser will allow you to turn off all cookies including essential cookies and you can find out how to do this via the Help facility in the browser menu. If you use this to turn off essential cookies it is very likely to restrict your use of the website and negatively affect the way in which it operates.
