What are cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you
visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to
another website that recognises those cookies. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise
a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at:
Cookies have various functions, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your
preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see
online are more relevant to you and your interests.
Some cookies are allocated to your device only for the duration of your visit to a website, and these are
called session based cookies. These cookies automatically expire when you close down your browser. Another
type of cookie known as "persistent" cookies would remain on your device for a set period of time.
In addition, please note that some websites contain third party cookies i.e. cookies that are set by a third
The cookies used on the website have been categorised based on the categories found in the
ICC UK Cookie
We have summarised those categories in the 'Categories of Cookies' section below.
Categories of Cookies
We have categorised the cookies used on the website based on the ICC's UK Cookie Guide.
The categories are as follows:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such
as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services which you have selected, like
shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided. Because these cookies are strictly necessary, we do not
need to ask for your consent to use them.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go
to most often, and whether they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information
that identifies a visitor. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous.
It is only used to improve the performance of a website. In addition, some of these cookies are analytics
cookies, set using third party web analytics software, which allow us to understand more about how our
website is used.
For example, some websites use Google Analytics cookies to help the owners of those websites to monitor
their website traffic but those cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. The owners of
those websites may also use such cookies to highlight products and/or services which they think will be of
interest to you based on your use of their websites.
These cookies allow websites to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region
you are in) and to provide enhanced and, more personal features. For example, a website may be able to
provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are
currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and
other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked
for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be
anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on websites other than the website you are visiting.
Targeting or advertising cookies
These cookies are used to deliver adverts that are relevant to you and your interests. They are also used
to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the
advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the permission of the website
operator. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other
organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site
functionality provided by the other organisations.
You can manage the cookies (except flash cookies) stored on your device by adjusting your web browser
even delete those that have already been set.
You can adjust your device's web browser settings by using the 'Help' function within the web browser. You
can also visit

device. That site contains comprehensive information on how to adjust your web browser settings for a wide
variety of web browsers.
Flash cookies cannot be disabled by adjusting your device's web browser settings. Some web browser
manufacturers are developing solutions to allow you to disable flash cookies through the use of the web
browser settings of your device, but at present, if you wish to restrict or block flash cookies, you must do
so on the Adobe website. In this regard, please visit:
