Cookie Policy

Last updated 23rd April 2024



We use necessary cookies to make our website (Website) work.  These cookies are set automatically.  When you consent to it, we also use other cookies to improve the way the Website works, measure how it is used and provide relevant advertising to you.

This policy details how our Website works, and how we put you in control of managing cookies.  It also outlines what cookies are used and why, as well as other information that may be useful to you.


Cookies are small text files set on a site to help operate and support its functionality.  Cookies collect and store certain information about the way a site is used, and can help a site integrate with other third party sites.  We use the term ‘cookies’ to describe cookies and other technologies that operate in a similar way (such as pixels and tags).

Cookies can be set by the owner of the website (first party cookies) or, in some cases, by external third parties who the owner of the website allows to present information, run content or provide other functionality on its website, such as analytics (third party cookies).

We may also refer to ‘session cookies’, which expire at the end of a user’s browsing session (usually when a user exits their browser), and ‘persistent cookies’, which are stored on your device for a longer period and in between sessions.

If you are based in the UK, there is lots of useful information about cookies on the Information Commissioner’s (ICO) website:


Our Website uses cookies to enable certain functionality, such as security and accessibility.  These cookies are necessary and set by default.  They are essential to enable you to move around our Website and use its features.  You may disable these cookies by changing your browser settings, but doing so will affect how our Website functions (i.e. it may mean that our Website does not work properly). 

When you consent to it, our Website also uses the following cookies for the following reasons:

  • Preference & Functional Cookies – allow our Website to remember choices or customisations that you have previously made. They are used to provide features and services specific to you;
  • Performance & Statistics Cookies (sometimes called analytical cookies) – collect information about how you use our Website, such as what pages you have previously visited and what links you have previously clicked on.  These cookies also allow us to identify where errors may have occurred, and include third-party analytics services.  They do not collect information that identifies individuals.  All information is aggregated and anonymous; and
  • Marketing & Advertising Cookies (sometimes called targeting cookies) – to collect information about your online activity to help advertisers deliver, for example, more relevant information to you. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Further information about the cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them is set out below.


Please note that certain third parties may also use cookies, over which we have no control.  These named third parties may include, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services.  These third party cookies are likely to be analytical cookies or targeting cookies.  Further information about the cookies we use is set out in the table below.

You can deactivate the use of third party advertising cookies by managing your cookie preferences at any time.


You can change your cookie settings at any time by managing your cookie setting in the privacy preference centre on our website.  You can accept all cookies by clicking ‘Accept All Cookies’ or reject all cookies (except necessary cookies –  see below) by clicking ‘Reject All Cookies’. You can personalise your choices by selecting which cookies you are willing to grant consent by “adjusting your preferences.”

Alternatively, you can adjust the available sliders to ‘On’ or ‘Off’ to indicate your preference for each cookie category by clicking ‘Manage Preferences’ and saving your preferences.

Our Website will only use necessary cookies without your permission – we need your permission to set all other cookies.

The cookie consent mechanism does not affect the way that necessary cookies are used.  As we set out above, if you would prefer necessary cookies not to be set, you can change your browser settings but this may affect the functionality or performance of the Website, or prevent you from using certain services provided through our Website.
