What are cookies?
‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by your web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Firefox) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a “memory” for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately.
Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie.These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before and allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don’t, we generate new ones.
These cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only.
