What are 'cookies'?
'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a 'memory' for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.
This website may generate the following types of cookie:
Technical cookies - These cookies are necessary to provide the requested service. These cookies are automatically erased when you close your browser
Anonymous analytics cookies - Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation (Google Analytics) generates 'anonymous analytics cookies'. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site. We cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page.
All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser.
