We want to ensure that your visit to our Web site is smooth, reliable and as useful to you as possible. To help us do this, we use cookies.

We notify you about our use of cookies when you first visit our Web site, through a notification banner at the bottom of the page. By continuing to use the site, you consent to our use of cookies. However, you can change your cookie settings, and choose whether or not to accept cookies, at any time through our Cookie Consent Tool.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are automatically placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit almost any Web site. They are stored by your Internet browser. Cookies contain basic information about your Internet use, but they do not normally identify you personally. Your browser sends these cookies back to the site every time you revisit it, so it can recognise your computer or mobile device and personalize and improve your site experience.

For instance, we use cookies on our Web site to remember your login details, so you don’t have to re-enter them repeatedly during your visit to the site. Other cookies help us to understand what did and didn’t interest you about our site, so we can provide you with features that are more relevant and useful to you next time you visit. We also use cookies to analyse how visitors use the site.

What types of cookies do we use?

The cookies we use fall into 3 categories. These categories are described below. You can find further information about the cookies in each category by accessing the Cookie Consent Tool.

Essential cookies

These cookies are necessary to help you access and move around our site and use all its features. Without these cookies, our website would not work properly and you would not be able to use certain important features. For example, we use a cookie to keep you logged in during your visit, so the site does not require you to log in repeatedly to access different pages.

Analytics and customisation cookies

We want to make your experience on our website as helpful, smooth and as enjoyable as possible. We use cookies to help us understand how our website is being used and how we can improve your experience on it. This type of so-called “analytics” cookies can provide us with anonymous information to help us understand which parts of our Web site interest our visitors and if they experience any errors. We use these cookies to test different designs and features for our sites and we also use them to help us monitor how our visitors reach our sites.

We also use cookies to save your settings and preferences on our Web site, such as language preference. Some customisation cookies are essential if you want to use certain features of the site.
