Cookie Policy

This Policy (Cookie Policy) is intended to provide you with information about how and why we use cookies on the website.

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a reasonable amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

 

What cookies do we use?

We can classify cookies into two separate categories, being those what are necessary for the functionality of the website, and those which we collect to analyse your activity to improve how the website works. The table below gives you a brief explanation of what types of cookies we collect, what the source of the cookies is, why we use the cookie, how long we retain the cookie, and whether the cookie is necessary for the website’s functionality or not:
