What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files placed on your computer by websites and sometimes by emails. They provide useful information to organisations, which helps to make your visits to their websites more effective and efficient.
Cookies do not contain any personal or confidential information about you.
There are two main categories of cookies:
#1 First Party Cookies – these cookies are issued by the website being visited and only the website which issued the first party cookies can read them.
#2 Third Party Cookies – these cookies are issued by the website(s) other than the website being visited.
This website does not use First Party Cookies itself.
Third Party ‘analytical’ Cookies are used, for example, Google Analytics. They allow us to count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
