Cookie Policy

This website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

We take our data protection obligations extremely seriously.  This Policy provides you with clear and comprehensive information about the cookies we use and the purposes for using them.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data generated by a website and saved by your web browser. Its purpose is to remember information about you. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our systems will issue and activate cookies as soon as you visit our site.

We only utilise browser cookies on this website.

There are two different types of browser cookies: ‘session’ and ‘persistent'”

  • Session cookies are temporary and are deleted when the browser is closed. These cookies allow us to link your actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
  • Persistent cookies are designed to store data for an extended period of time, and they are activated each time that you visit the website that created that particular cookie. Each persistent cookie is created with an expiration date, which may be anywhere from a few days to several years in the future. Once the expiration date is reached, the cookie is automatically deleted. Persistent cookies allow websites to “remember you” for two weeks, one month, or any other amount of time.

We utilise a mixture of session and persistent cookies on this website. You can find further information regarding these cookies, together with advice and guidance about how you can delete/remove and deactivate cookies on your web browser, below.
