Some of the cookies we use are necessary for our website to function properly. These types of cookies will not store your personal data and cannot be switched off.

Types of Cookies Used
We use the following cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website and your use of it, for example Google Analytics. The cookies we use are “session” cookies. These are temporary cookies which are destroyed when you close your browser, as opposed to “persistent cookies” which will remain on your device until they expire, or you delete them from the cache. When you close the browser and go back to the website it will not recognise any of your data. You will have to log back in to retrieve your settings/personalised information (if applicable). A new session cookie will be generated, which will store your browsing information and will be active until you leave the site and close your browser.
Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve our content and the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. We will only use these cookies if you have given your consent for us to do so.
