What are Cookies?

Cookies are text files that can be placed and stored on your computer’s hard drive or browser by the Website owner / web server when you visit a website. Cookies enable users to navigate around websites, record which areas have been visited and for how long to help the browsing experience. Where appropriate they also enable us to tailor the website’s content to fit the needs of visitors who have accessed the Website in the past. You can find more information about cookies at: and

There are two different types of cookies:

First party cookies are set by websites you go to or

Third party cookies are set by outside organisations. For instance, you may be on a website that has ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ buttons for social network sites. If you click one, the social network site will put a ‘third party’ cookie on your device. That cookie may then collect data about you and send it to them too. You will need to set your privacy choices on their site, to tell them how they can use your data.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies: to monitor and manage website traffic; if required as a matter of law or regulation, to protect our or our other customers’ rights; for login purposes; to enable us to remember preferences, track visitors; and to make the browsing experience on the website more efficient and enjoyable for the visitor. We use both our own (first party) and partner companies’ (third-party) cookies to support these activities. Allowing us to create a Cookie does not allow us to access your computer or your personal data and we do not use Cookies to track your internet usage or serve targeted advertising after you leave the Website.
