What do cookies do?
Cookies have lots of different purposes. Some are to tell Google which pages you’ve visited and for how long. Others are used to control the appearance of our site on your device or help improve your site experience.
We use 2 types of cookie on our websites:
• Session Cookies
As the name suggests, these are temporary files which only last as long as your online browsing session does. Session cookies help the website remember what you’ve entered on previous pages, so you don’t have to enter information twice.
When you close your browser, they’re gone.
• Persistent Cookies
These cookies remain on your device once you’ve visited our website. They help us identify you as a unique visitor, but they only identify you as a number, not by name, and the cookie can’t be used to identify you personally.
Changing your cookie settings
You can control the way your web browser manages cookies. If you wish, you can disable cookies entirely, although this may affect your web browsing experience.
