We respect the privacy of all users of our website.

This website uses cookies. Our cookie policy explains what cookies we use on our website and the purpose of each cookie. It also explains how you can manage your preferences in relation to the cookies we use.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer, tablet or mobile device when you visit a website.  Among other things, cookies can be used to recognise you or your device when you return to our website or browse other websites.  Cookies help us to understand user behaviour, make our website work better and target online advertising.

Cookies can be set by the owner of the website (first party cookies) or in some cases by third party services the website owner allows to present information, run content or provide other functionality on the website, such as analytics (third party cookies).

We use the term cookies to describe cookies and other technologies that operate in a similar way.

For more information about cookies, you can visit www.allaboutcookies.org. Please note that this site is operated by a third party and not by us.

 

What types of cookie are there?

We categorise the cookies used on our website into one of four categories as follows:

  • Strictly necessary cookies – these cookies are essential to make the site function (e.g. to remember that you are logged into the website)
  • Performance cookies – these cookies allow us to monitor the performance of the website and how it is used (e.g. analytics cookies); these cookies enable us to identify problems with the website and to identify where improvements can be made
  • Functional cookies – these cookies are used to enable certain functions of the website to operate (e.g. to show embedded videos) and to remember your preferences (e.g. remember preferences such as not showing the cookie consent banner after you have clicked "I agree")
  • Advertising cookies – these cookies are used in connection with the provision of targeted advertisements on other sites, and to track any sales due to these advertisements. For example, these cookies will remember that you have visited our website and may be used to show you a tailored advertisement on another website, such as a social media platform.

How do I change my cookie settings?

Strictly necessary cookies are set automatically and this cannot be changed using the banner or the 'Your Cookie Preferences' box on this page.

Once you have submitted your cookie preferences, the cookie banner will disappear from your screen, and re-appear after a period of 6 months. If you had opted in, but do not opt in again at this 6 month point, the cookies set by the website will still exist on your browser, for the lifespan listed in the cookies table below, but will cease to operate.
