What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files that a website places on the hard drive of your computer that identifies you as a user. When you return to the website, your browser sends that information back to the site.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on our website. We will use the session cookies to remember you whilst you navigate the website. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our website to recognise you when you visit and provide you with a personalised service.
Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser.
Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date. No personally identifying information from you will be collected as part of these cookies. You can set your browser to notify you before you receive a cookie, giving you a chance to accept it and you can set your browser to turn off cookies.
Cookies and browser settings
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
