Due to changes in the law, websites must now 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 visiting our Managing Cookies page.
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 will not work.
The table below explains what 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 table 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 the website that created that particular cookie. 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.
- 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.
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. such as to keep your information safe). We would not be able to operate our website without using the "strictly necessary" cookies listed below.
