What is a cookie?
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user's computer. They are downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. They hold a modest amount of data and do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve your website experience. Ultimately cookies help us deliver a personalised website experience for our visitors.
How cookies personalise your website experience
For repeat visits (assuming you are using the same device and the same browser) cookies will remember your preferences, will know how you use the website, and will adapt the content you are shown so that it is more relevant to your personal interests and needs.
There are four categories of cookies:
1. Strictly Necessary Cookies
Strictly Necessary cookies enable features without which you would not be able to use the website as intended. They are only saved on your computer while you are actually browsing the website. An example would be your language preference when browsing this website. Your consent is not required for the use of Strictly Necessary cookies. Strictly Necessary cookies cannot be disabled without losing some of the features of this website.
2. Performance cookies
Performance cookies collect anonymous information about how visitors use our website, for instance which pages they go to most often, and if they get error messages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. They are only used to improve how a website works.
3. Functional cookies

The information these cookies is anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
4. Targeting cookies
Targeting cookies are used to deliver adverts and other communications that are more relevant to you. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other parties such as advertisers. Quite often targeting cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
You can completely disable cookies in your browser at any time.
