Cookies

This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help customise your experience. Most big websites use cookies. They improve things by:

  • remembering settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page
  • remembering information you’ve given (eg. your postcode) so you don’t need to keep entering it
  • measuring how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs.

Our cookies aren’t used to identify you personally. They’re just here to make the site work better for you. We don’t gather personal information about you, which we then share with others. To learn more about cookies and how you can control them, visit www.AboutCookies.org.

What are ‘cookies’?

'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a "memory" for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately.

If you’d like to change your cookie settings, or remove cookies go to the Help section of your web browser.

We use cookies in several places – we’ve listed each of them below with more details about why we use them and how long they will last.
