Cookie Policy

We use cookies to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allow us to improve and monitor use of our site. By continuing to use our website, you are agreeing to our use of Cookies on this site.

(1) Introduction

Our website uses cookies to distinguish you from other users. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve and monitor use of our site. This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are, how we use them and what benefits they bring.

(2) About cookies

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.

Generally, cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies.

A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date).

A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

(2) Our cookies

We use or may use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies: These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into our website, such as on our User Logon Page or if any secure area such as Payment Processing Page.
  • Analytical/performance cookies: These allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors, see how visitors move around our website when they are using it and estimate and report our total audience size and traffic. This helps us to improve the way our website works, e.g, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. All information about how you used our website may be collected anonymously. The service we use is Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. For more details please visit the Google Privacy Centre. You can also watch a video about Google Analytics Cookies.
  • Functionality cookies: These are used to recognise you when you return to our website, when completing online forms and logging in to the site. This would enable us to personalise our content for you and remember your search preferences.
  • Session Cookie: These are used where you log in to an application and it remembers that you are logged in as you navigate the website. When you close the browser the cookie is deleted, as a result when visiting the website again you would need to log in again.
  • Persistent Cookie: These are used for example if you were prompted to take part in a website survey and you completed the survey. A persistent cookie would be stored on your computer to record that you have completed that survey. This would prevent you being prompted with the survey each time you visited the website.

We do not use cookies to share information with social networking sites or any other third parties company.
