  • Analytical or performance cookies. These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember  any preferences.

Necessary Cookies

Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.

Unclassified Cookies

Unclassified cookies are cookies that we are in the process of classifying, together with the providers of individual cookies.

Please note that where you link through to our third party providers websites, they may also use cookies over which we have no control. You should, therefore, ensure that you check that website or service provider’s own cookie policy as you interact with these websites.
