Cookie Policy

This policy is implemented in accordance with the European General Data Protection Regulation, which requires companies to be clear on how cookies record users’ data.

Use of cookies

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit. They can improve your experience of using a website, for example, by remembering your preference settings and tracking your use of that website so it can be improved to meet your needs.

All websites must get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you.

You can set your cookie preferences when you arrive at our website, or change them at any time by going through your browser settings. You may need to refresh your page for your settings to take effect. Alternatively, most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings.

Please check your internet browser software or with your software supplier if you wish to block cookies. Please note that disabling cookies may result in certain features of the Website not working.

Unless the cookie is a strictly necessary cookie, you can withdraw your consent to our cookies at any time, even if you have previously consented. Although, please do remember that if you do not consent to our functionality cookies, parts of our website may not work. For this reason we will occasionally send you prompts, which will allow you to consent to a new cookie or a cookie you have previously rejected.

The tables below explain which cookies we use on our website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary or another type of cookie e.g. "functionality" or "performance" cookies. We also state in the tables whether a cookie is a "persistent" or "session" cookie. The difference is that:

  • persistent cookies remain on your device between browsing sessions. They are activated each time you visit a website. For example, where a persistent cookie is used on a website to remember your log-in details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that website; and
  • session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Some of the cookies listed below are those set by our website; however, we also have cookies on our website that are set by third parties, not us.

Strictly necessary

Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to receive a service on a website. For example, cookies to operate online shopping baskets, do your internet banking or to comply with the law (e.g. to keep your information safe). We would not be able to operate our website without using the "strictly necessary" cookies listed below.

Performance

Performance cookies collect information about how users use a website; for instance, which pages users go to most often and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a user. Any information collected by these cookies is anonymous. We only use such information to improve our website.

Functionality

Functionality cookies allow websites to remember choices you make (such as your log in details) and customised preference settings (e.g. text size). They also enable enhanced, more personal features, e.g. a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by using a cookie to remember which region you are in. These cookies are also used to provide services you have asked for, such as watching a video. Information collected by functionality cookies may or may not be anonymised, but they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. The functionality cookies on our website only collect anonymous information.

Targeting

These cookies collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. These cookies collect the most information about users.
