When you access the Site for the first time, you will be asked to agree to our use of certain types of cookies (such as performance, marketing and tracking cookies) listed in the table below in the manner described in this policy. This is to ensure compliance with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations. If you previously accessed the Site and did not agree for cookies to be set or you deleted cookies previously, you will be asked to agree to cookies being placed on your computer again.
There are certain types of cookies which are essential and which we do not require your agreement to store in accordance with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations, which are called Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a text file containing a small amount of information that a website sends to your browser when you visit a website. The cookie is then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises it. Cookies enhance the user experience; for example some cookies allow the website to “remember” your actions or preferences over time so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
This means we automatically collect and store the following information about your visit to the Site:
- the internet domain and IP address from where you access the Site;
- the type of browser software and operating system used to access the Site;
- the date and time you access the Site;
- if you linked to the Site from another website, the address of that website; and
- the pages you enter, visit and exit the Site from.
How to control or delete cookies

If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set on this Site (or, indeed, on any other website) you can do this through your browser settings. The “Help” function within your browser should tell you how.
