1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of information, or ‘data’ that websites store on a device.  These cookies can improve your browsing experience by helping websites to remember user preferences and provide tailored options based on the information stored from your last visit. 

Cookies are used by nearly all websites and do not harm your device.

2. How do we use them?

This website is powered by WordPress, who use cookies to track patterns which allow us to understand how visitors use our website and how they navigate different features. They also provide us with analytical feedback such as the number of page views or visitors this website receives and where they are based geographically. This helps us to develop and improve the website as well as our products and services.

3. How long do they stay on my device?

There are two main types of cookies, Session Cookies and Persistent Cookies. 

Session cookies are only stored on your device during your web session and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They usually store an anonymous session ID allowing you to browse a website without having to log in to each page, but they do not collect any personal data from your computer.  

Persistent cookies are stored as a file on your computer and remain there when you close your web browser. The cookie can then be read by the website that created it when you visit that website again.

4. Functional and Required Cookies

These are essential in allowing visitors to navigate and use key features on our site. Some of these features include:

  • Preventing cross-site request forgery (CSRF). CSRF is an attack vector that tricks a browser into taking unwanted action in an application. 
  • Preventing redirect loops if a site has custom URL redirects. 
  • Preventing Promotional Pop-Up and Announcement Bars from displaying if a visitor dismisses them.

Without these cookies, the services available to you on our website cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you or track where you have been on the internet.

5. Analytics and Performance Cookies

These cookies enable us to monitor and improve the performance of our website. For example, they allow us to count visits, page views and unique visitors, collect information about how visitors interact with our site, identify traffic sources and see which parts of the site are most popular.

6. Check, Change and Clear your cookies

With most common web browsers, you can:

  • Check which cookies are active in your browser settings.
  • Change what type of cookies you accept by altering your browser settings.
  • Clear cookies from your browser or device, either globally or from a specific website.

You can block cookies for this website at any time by activating the setting on your browser. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including functional and required cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.

Should you choose to click ‘OK’ on the confirmation message on our cookie banner, you will not see the message again for 30 days, unless you clear your cookies.
