What Are Cookies and Why do we use them
Cookies are small text files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages, which allows a website to recognise you as a user when you return to that website, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). Other similar files work in the same way, and we use the word “cookie” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Performance And Analytics Cookies
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site.

If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by our Site, you can also do this at any time through your browser settings. The ‘Help’ function within your browser should tell you how. If you don't wish to enable ‘non-essential’ cookies on your computer, that will mean that your experience of using our website site will be impaired - as some of the cookies help us to identify and resolve errors for example, or determine relevant related products to show you when you're browsing.
