Cookies

When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as cookies. They're used for many things, such as remembering whether you've visited the site before, so that you remain logged in - or to help us work out how many new website visitors we get each month.

They contain information about the use of your computer but don't include personal information about you (they don't store your name, for instance).

This policy explains how cookies are used on our websites in general - and, below, how you can control the cookies that may be used on this site.

You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them through Internet browser cookies – what they are and how to manage them.

We have tried to cover all cookies in this list that we or our service providers use. Please be aware that there may be a delay in updating this list. If you do notice any discrepancies please be sure to contact us and let us know.
