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

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree.  Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive or web browser and our server calls on the cookies when you visit our website. Some cookies help our website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (known as a “session cookie”) or for repeat visits (known as a “persistent cookie”).

We use the following types of cookies:

This helps us to improve our website’s functionality and user experience (for example, by ensuring that users can easily find what they are looking for). These cookies also help us to measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
  • Functionality cookies. These cookies record information about choices you have made and are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region) and therefore help you to navigate our website.
