What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ’session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by other websites who serve up content on that site (‘third party cookies’).
The list below describe the cookies we use on this site and what we use them for. We would obviously like you at accept all our cookies so that your visit may help us to improve this website, however you may reject all non essential cookies (those responsible for tracking your visit). Essential cookies are required should you wish to sign-in to the website (and are only set when you do so). They also remember your cookie preferences! So without essential cookies you would be nagged about your cookie preferences every time you visit.
If you are not happy with even our “essential” cookies, then you should either not use this site, or you should delete the cookies having visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “InPrivate” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari etc.). However in so doing you will NOT be able to sign-in.
