Information about our use of cookies

Certain parts of the Website use "cookies" to keep track of your visit and to help you navigate between sections. A cookie is a small data file that may be stored on your computer's hard-drive when you visit a website. Cookies can contain information such as your user ID and the pages you have visited.

We use cookies on the Website to enable us to deliver content that is specific to your interests and to give us an idea of which parts of the Website you are visiting and to recognise you when you return to the Website. Our cookies do not read data from your computer's hard-drive or read cookies created by other websites that you have visited. This means that your visit will be tracked, but that to all intents and purposes you remain anonymous.

There are four types of cookies used on this website:
