What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile phone when you browse websites to store information, in most cases anonymous information, specific to that visitor.
Cookies allow visitors to login on one page and move around other pages whilst remaining logged in. They allow preferences to be set by the visitor and for those preferences to be remembered by the site the next time the visitor logs in.
Cookies can also be used to anonymously view the way visitors navigate our site, how visitors find our site and how long they spend on our site.
Turning cookies off
You can switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. However, doing so will likely limit the functionality of our website.
It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. This website does not use spyware. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
