Cookies and how they benefit you

Our website uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help offer you the best experience we can. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer, tablet or mobile phone when you browse websites.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website. They make the site work as intended, enable us to improve the speed and security of the site and they allow us to monitor which pages people find useful and which they don’t. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you share with us through our forms. For more on our use of data, please refer to our privacy notice.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but you can choose to accept or decline them. You can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer but this may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website features.

‘Strictly necessary’ cookies

Cookies that fall into the ‘strictly necessary’ category are those that are essential to the functioning of the website. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to move around the site quite so well or use its features.

Performance cookies

Our aim is to offer website visitors the best possible user experience. To that end, we use Google Analytics statistics to see how people use the site — which pages are popular, the journeys they take — and to inform the improvements we make. But it’s important to note that the data is anonymised, so there is nothing collected to identify a particular individual.
