What are the cookies?
A cookie is a small file that is saved by your browser when you visit a website. It enables certain information about your visit to be stored by the site. Some of these cookies are essential in order for a website to run as you would expect it to while others allow us to provide you with a better service (for example, understanding what content is most popular, to provide you more of the same).
We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on the website.
We use session cookies to keep you logged in while you move through pages and services on our site, to enable you to complete transactions on the site and, for example, to pre-populate forms with information to save you typing in information that you have already provided. Session cookies have a short lifetime and will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit. If you select “Remember Me” when logging in to the site a persistent cookie will be stored on your computer or device that will remain live for 2 weeks so that the website can keep you logged in when using that browser on that particular computer or device until you choose to log out. If you do not wish for our website to ‘remember you’, you must ensure that you do not select the “Remember Me” checkbox.

To block cookies, you will have to activate the setting on your browser that allows you to block all or specific cookies. Please note, however, that if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies), you may not be able to access all or parts of our site.
With the exception of essential cookies, we aim to ensure that cookies will expire after a reasonable timeframe.
