What are cookies?

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience while you browse and also allows us to improve our site.

A cookie is a small piece of text that a website asks your browser to store in your hard drive. Cookies can't read data off your hard drive or other cookie files, and do not damage your system.

The cookies we use are 'analytical' cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how they navigate around the site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works.

All cookies have expiration dates in them that determine how long they stay in your browser. Cookies can be removed in two ways: automatically, when they expire, or when you manually delete them. We've included more details below to help you understand what kinds of cookies we use.

Type of cookies

Session cookies

These are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. For example, these kind of cookies are used for basic requirements of functionality for the website.

Persistent cookies

These usually have an expiration date far into the future and thus stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. An example of how we use persistent cookies is for functionalities like the "Stay logged in" tickbox. We also use persistent cookies to better understand usage patterns so we can improve the site for our customers. This information is anonymised - when we look at the data, in other words, we look at patterns, but we do not see individuals' personally identified information.
