Cookies on this website

On this page:

This Cookie notice provides you with information about the cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that websites store on your browser when you visit them. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise your visit and collect information about how you use that website.

The cookies we use

The cookies we use are either strictly necessary or optional.

Strictly necessary cookies

Strictly necessary cookies ensure that our website is able to function properly. We don't have to ask for your consent to store these cookies on your browser. We've listed the categories of these strictly necessary cookies below.

Cookies that help you log on

We use these cookies to remember who you are when you log on to secure areas of our website. You won't be able to log on without them.

Cookies that help us provide core services and features

We use these cookies to provide core services and features on our website. These services and features won't work without them.

Optional cookies

We'd also like to use cookies to provide optional features, improve our website and support advertising and social media.

You can delete the cookies found on your computer and prevent cookies from being stored/placed on your internet explorer. For detailed information you can read “How you can manage your cookie preferences” section.

Cookies that we use to make your visit more personal

We use these cookies to ensure our optional features and services work. Our website will still work without them.

This category may also include cookies that allow us to customise what you see on our website and where, based on what we know about you.

Cookies that help us improve our website

We use these cookies to help us understand how people use our website. We can then use this data to improve how our website works. For instance, we may use analytics providers to identify and count visits to our website and to see which pages people go to and what they do there.

Cookies that support marketing

We and our partners use these cookies to understand what you're interested in on our website and on social media. These cookies may also identify which other websites may have directed you to our website. This is so we or our partners can personalise our marketing to you, including online advertising and social media. You can change your mind on how you receive certain types of marketing message or choose to stop receiving them at any time. You can find more details about this in our Privacy notice.

Cookie duration and your browser settings

The length of time for which cookies are stored on your browser varies depending on the cookie. Some cookies only last for your online session, whereas others will stay on your browser for a reasonable time afterwards. Unless we’ve given a specific time in the list of cookies above, the cookies set via our website will usually last between 13 and 24 months from your most recent visit to our site.

Some of our partners also use the same cookies to collect information about the use of their own or other websites. In these cases, the cookie can remain on your device, usually for up to 24 months from your last visit to the site that accessed that cookie.

You can use your browser settings to delete cookies that have already been set at any time. You can also use your browser settings to manage cookies, for example, to switch off a cookie altogether. If you do this, it could mean that we can't use strictly necessary cookies properly and so parts of our website may not work correctly. For more information about how to use your browser settings to clear your browser data or to manage cookies, check your browser 'Help' function.
