Home | Cookie Policy

This site uses cookies – small text files that are placed on your computer or device to help our site provide a better user experience.

In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics.

Types of Cookie

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) groups cookies into three overlapping groups:

Session cookies

Files that allow a site to link the actions of a visitor during a single browser session at our website. For example, these might be used by an internet bank or webmail service. They are not stored long term and are considered ‘less privacy intrusive’ than persistent cookies.

Persistent cookies

These remain on the user’s device between sessions and allow one or several sites to remember details about the visitor. For example, they can be used to target advertising (not on our website though) or to avoid the user having to provide a password each visit.

First and third-party cookies

A cookie is classed as being first-party if it is set by the site being visited. It might be used to study how people navigate a site. It is classed as third-party if it is issued by a different server to that of the domain being visited. It could be used to trigger a banner advert based on the visitor’s viewing habits.

As a rule, cookies will make your browsing experience better. However, you may prefer to disable cookies on this site and on others. The most effective way to do this is to disable cookies in your browser. We suggest consulting the Help section of your browser or taking a look at the Information Commissioners Office website which offer guidance for enabling and disabling cookies on all modern browsers.
