Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website.

They allow the website to recognise your device and remember if you've been to the website before.

Cookies are very common and most websites use cookies and have done for many years. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work more efficiently, as well as providing information to the owners of websites.

Cookies are used to measure which parts of the website people visit and to customise your experience. Cookies also provide information that helps us monitor and improve the website's performance.

Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Cookies help us to collect information on how people use our website and which pages they visit. They enable us to monitor the number of visitors and to analyse website usage patterns and trends.
