Our policies


What are cookies and why do we use them?

A cookie is a small text file of letters and numbers that we place on your computer or device when you use our website. Cookies help us to collect data about you which, will in turn, distinguish you from other visitors and provide you with a good experience whenever you are using our website. The only cookies we use are from Google Analytics.

What types of cookies do we use?

Some cookies only last until you close your browser or for a short time after. These are called session cookies. Some last longer, for example, to enable a website to recognise you when you return to it. These are called persistent cookies. We use both session and persistent cookies to ensure that you get the best experience when using our website.

There are also different types of cookies to collect different types of data about the way you interact with our website. We only use performance cookies. These are cookies that allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors we have and how these visitors use our website. This data helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that visitors find what they are looking for easily.

In the table below we set out the individual cookies we use and why we use them:
