Types of cookies used on this website
As mentioned above cookies come in two basic forms:
- Session cookies – these are temporary cookies that only exist in the period you access the website (or more strictly, until you close the browser after accessing the website). Session cookies help the website remember what you chose on the previous page, therefore avoiding having to re-enter information. On our website, these cookies do not contain personal information, and cannot be used to identify you.
- Persistent cookies – these are cookies that remain on your device after you have visited our website. These cookies help us identify you as a unique visitor (by storing a randomly generated number) but they do not contain personal information and cannot be used to identify you. The length of time a cookie will remain on your device will depend on the type of cookie.
Cookies can also be subdivided based on the function they perform – necessary, functional, performance, analytical, and advertising/marketing.
Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers. You will also find details on how to delete cookies from your computer (including those from this visit) as well as more general information about cookies. For information on how to do this on the browser of your mobile device, you will need to refer to your handset manual.
Our website offers you the chance to explicitly consent to either all cookies or selective cookies using the buttons in the pop-up widget on the screen. If you don’t then the only cookies used will be the completely necessary cookies.
