What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser.

The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies are used to enable web pages to function more efficiently as well as providing information to the web page owner.

Cookies also make it possible to distinguish users from each other, which can give the user a more positive experience of the website. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

Our site uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of our site. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our site and also allows us to improve our site. By continuing to browse our site, you are agreeing to our use of cookies.

Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these, means that certain personalized features cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly they may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website's features.

Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
