What are cookies?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit our site. Our site recognises those cookies on each subsequent visit, enabling the site to recognise you. Unless you have adjusted your browser settings to refuse cookies (we explain how you can do this later on in this Notice), our site will set cookies as soon as you visit it.

How and why we use cookies

We use cookies on our site to:

  • recognise you whenever you visit our site
  • remember the notifications you’ve seen so that we don’t show them to you again
  • allow you to navigate between pages efficiently
  • measure how you use our site so that we can update and improve it to give you the best possible experience.

The information we obtain from our use of cookies will not usually contain information from which you can easily be identified, such as your name.  However, we do collect some personal data relating to your computer or other electronic device, such as your IP address, your browser and/or other internet log information.

In most cases we will need your consent in order to use cookies on our site.  The exception to this is where the cookie is essential in order for us to provide you with a service you have requested.
