What are cookies?
What cookies are used on this website:
The cookies we use on this website are broadly grouped into the following categories:
Essential: Some of the cookies on our website are essential for us to be able to provide you with a service you have requested. Our ‘cookie preference’ cookie, described in the section ‘how can I reject or opt out of receiving cookies’ is an example of an essential cookie. You may not be able to use our website effectively without these cookies.
Analytics: We use analytics cookies to help us understand how users engage with our website. An example of this is for counting the number of different people coming to our website, visiting a particular page or using a particular feature. Without this cookie, if you visited the website once each week for three weeks, we would count you as three separate users and this wouldn’t be a true representation. We would find it difficult to analyse how well our website was performing and improve it without these cookies, and we feel that it is vital to monitor these user statistics to enable us to provide the most relevant and useful content to you. These cookies do not let us identify specific users as the information is aggregated.
