Definition of “Cookies”

A cookie is a small data file that is sent to your device when you first visit a website. Cookies usually include an identification number that is unique to the device or browser you are using. Such identifiers can help us better understand our users and how they are using the Site. Cookies also enable recognition of a user when they re-visit the Site, keeping their settings and preferences. If you prefer, however, you can reset your browser, so it refuses all cookies, or notifies you when a cookie is being set.


Types of Cookies

There are different categories of cookies, including:

  • Strictly Necessary. These cookies are essential to navigate the Site and use the features. Strictly Necessary cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off.

If you do not allow these cookies we will not be able to monitor Site performance.

However, please note that if you choose to refuse or disable cookies you may not be able to use the full functionality of our Site and your online experience may be limited.

You can change your preferences by changing the settings in your browser. Most browsers will allow you to choose the level of privacy settings you want.  This lets you control your cookie settings so that you can:
