Our Use of Cookies

Like many companies our Websites use "cookies". A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is placed on your computer's hard drive when you visit certain websites. We may use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify site features in which you may have the greatest interest. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site. For more information on cookies please see www.whatarecookies.com.


Most of the cookies we use are "personalisation cookies" which are used to recognise repeat visitors to the Websites and "analytics cookies" which monitor how visitors use our Websites and give us a better understanding of what content visitors are spending most time reading. The types of cookies used on our Websites are as follows:

  • Strictly Necessary 

These cookies are essential to enable you to receive a service on a website. For example, cookies to operate online shopping baskets, do your internet banking or to comply with the law (e.g. such as to keep your information safe).

  • Analytics / Performance 

These cookies are used only to help us to improve our Websites over time, by giving us insights into how the various sections of the Websites are used and how users interact with the Websites, for example which pages visitors go to most often and whether they get error messages from web pages. The information collected is anonymous and statistical.

  • Authentication

These cookies are used to identify unique visitors to the Websites. If you log in to the Websites, these are the cookies that allow us to remember who you are and what your preferences are so that we can provide you with access to pages personal to you, for example your account pages or your selected font size. These cookies help keep your visit to the site secure. These cookies can also enable enhanced, more personal features and to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video, which is how they are used on our website. Whilst information collected by "functionality" cookies may or may not be anonymised, the "functionality" cookies on our website only collect anonymous information.

  • Others

These cookies collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising relevant to you and your interests. These cookies collect the most information about users.

We have listed below the specific cookies that we use and the purposes for which we use them. You will see that we have also identified whether they are session cookies or persistent cookies. 'Session cookie' is a commonly used description for a cookie which stores information about user page activities to allow users to be recognized within a website so any page changes or item or data selection is remembered from page to page; whilst 'persistent cookie' is a commonly used description for a cookie which helps websites remember your information and settings when you visit them in the future.
