Cookie Policy

When you visit the Site we may store some information (commonly known as a "cookie") on your computer. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your hard drive to store and sometimes track information about you. Cookies are specific to the server that created them and cannot be accessed by other servers, which means that they cannot be used to track your movements around the web. They also cannot be used to identify you personally.

Cookies can be categorised in accordance with the categories found in the ICO UK Cookie guide as set out below:

  • (a) strictly necessary cookies - these cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around a website and use its features and enable services you have specifically asked for. Consent is not generally required for these cookies;
  • (b) performance cookies - these collect information about how visitors use a website, for example, by recording which pages users go to most often (usually on an anonymous basis);
  • (c) functionality cookies - these cookies allow a website to remember the choices a user makes, such as a user name or language preference; and
  • (d) targeting or advertising cookies - these collect information about a user's browsing habits and are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator's permission.

Cookies can also be categorised in accordance with how long they are saved on your device. "Session cookies" are short-term cookies that are only saved on the computer's memory for the duration of a user's visit to the website, whereas "persistent cookies" remain saved in the computer's memory for a set period of time, even after the browser session has ended.
