How we use cookies on this website / Our policy..

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website to recognise your device on any further visit. Web beacons / Flash or other similar files can also do the same thing. The term “cookies” in this policy refers to all files that collect information in this way.

There are several functions cookies serve. For example, they remember your username and preferences, analyse how well the website is performing, or allow us to recommend services we believe will be relevant and of most use to you.

Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username or indeed  allow a personal ‘hello name’ greeting for example.

Cookies may be either “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies. A session cookie, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (they can however be deleted by the user before the expiry date).

Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how a user arrives at and uses the websites, or a user’s general location.

Generally, cookies perform up to four different functions:

1. Essential cookies

2. Performance Cookies

3. Functionality Cookies

4. Behaviourally Targeted Advertising Cookies

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how you can manage and delete them, visit
