A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that our website places on your computer. Some cookies act as a type of memory for a website, allowing the website to remember your computer on your return visits, while others are essential for the website to function properly. Cookies can allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website, which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse this website, and also allows us to improve our site. Some of the cookies we use are “analytics” cookies and others are “functional” cookies.
These cookies, using a service provided by Google Analytics, allow us to recognise and count our visitors and to see how visitors move around the website. This helps us to improve the way the website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. We will also use this information to assess how successful certain areas of the site are by the amount of traffic they receive. These cookies help us measure and improve site performance and personalise your experience by tailoring the content you see, thus optimising your user experience.
