What are Cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your browser or hard drive of your device when you visit a website or app and are then retransmitted to the site the next time you visit. These cookies allow us to distinguish your browser from that of other users of our website and remember information so that information doesn’t have to be repeatedly provided.
Cookies do lots of different jobs. They help our site work, or at least work more efficiently. They help us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website. They may store your preferences and other information and also allow us to improve our site both generally, by helping us to understand how people are using our site, and for your specific use through personalising it through preferences and settings.
There are different types of cookies and functions vary depending on their characteristics. They also stay on the device for different periods of time.
Cookies created and stored directly by us are called first-party cookies. We also use third-party cookies, which are cookies from a different domain, more information of which is below.

When you first access our site, you will receive a clear message advising you that cookies are in use. This message may also appear in the event that we change any cookies in use that have a bearing on this policy. At this point only ‘essential cookies’ are in use as we do not require your consent to use of those cookies. By clicking to ‘accept’ you signify that you understand and agree to the use of all cookies, as further described in this policy.

We will only use ‘strictly necessary cookies’ unless you have given your prior consent to use of other cookies.
Once you have interacted with our messages your preferences will remain valid for a period of twelve (12) months. However, most web browsers also allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings including the ability to refuse or restrict cookies. You may also delete cookies after they have been placed on your device through your browser settings.
However if you do not accept, or restrict or delete cookies at any time, this may affect the functionality of the site and it may take more time to work.
There are some cookies out there from other companies. These are third party cookies, more information below, and we can’t control those. You can turn them off but not through us.
