What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that contain a string of characters that are downloaded on to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalised service, for instance by storing information about your preferences and allowing us to recognise you when you return to our websites.
The law distinguishes between "essential" cookies, such as those which enable websites to operate properly and those which are not strictly necessary, such as tracking cookies, or cookies used for the purposes of web analytics.
We are allowed to place essential cookies on your device without your consent (as long as we inform you, such as by way of this notice), but for all other cookies we require your express consent. This is why we have a clear "cookie banner" when you land on our website, which allows you either to consent to receive these "non-essential” cookies or decline them.
Which cookies do we use?
We use the following cookies:
• Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our websites and use features, such as accessing secure areas of the site or remembering language choices. Without these cookies, we would not be able to provide you with services like enabling appropriate content based on your type of device.
• Analytics Cookies: These cookies allow us to see if our websites are working well – for instance we can see which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages.
Choices about cookies
We ask you for your consent to use analytics cookies when you visit our websites. If you want to change your mind about this, you can do this by vising our [consent management platform].
