This site, like most others, uses 'cookies'. A 'cookie' is a tiny text file placed on your device by websites you visit that stores information.

They perform a number of functions: they enable a website to operate; they make websites work smoothly, and offer users a good experience; they provide information about the use of a website; they help ensure adverts users see on the Web are as relevant to them as possible.

By using our website, you agree that we can place these cookies on your device. (Please note that one cookie will already have been set if you have clicked the button to dismiss our cookies notification banner). If you wish to delete the cookies set by this site, please see the information about managing cookies below, then leave the site, and delete the cookies shown under our domain name in your web browser settings).

Types of Cookies

The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) devised a system of classification for cookies. There are four categories and a different level of consent is required from users to receive each type of cookie. No explicit consent is required for Necessary cookies, or basic Functionality cookies. Cookie types 3 & 4 are normally set by third parties.

  1. Strictly Necessary Cookies - these cookies are essential to enable you to navigate a website and use its feature. No user consent is required.
  2. Functionality Cookies - these cookies allow the website to remember choices you make while using a website.
  3. Performance Cookies - these cookies collect information about how visitors use a website.
  4. Targeting or Advertising Cookies - these cookies are used to deliver adverts relevant to you and your interests by collecting information about your browsing habits.

To see cookies currently in use on this, or any website, search for "cookie audit" or "cookie audit websites". These sites can provide an audit of all cookies in use on a website.

Most web browsers enable you to check which cookies were set by a website you have visited, and are being stored in your browser. This information is usually available in the browser's Settings, Options or Preferences section, usually under 'Privacy' or 'Cookies'. Check the documentation for your browser to see if your browser has this cookie audit facility.

Managing Cookies

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to block some, or all cookies if you prefer. Blocking cookies set by websites you visit will stop the site from working correctly in many cases, while blocking third party cookies will probably have no noticeable effect other than increasing the number of irrelevant adverts you see on the internet.

In order to understand your browser's cookie settings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you could use the 'Help' option in your browser for more information.

Web browsers also give you the option to delete cookies that have already been set, usually by accessing the list of cookies stored by the browser, and searching for the domain whose cookies you wish to delete.

In the case of cookies stored on a device by third parties when you use a website, the website owner normally has no control over such cookies, or how the third parties use them. Some are used to help the third party to provide a service to the website - providing digital maps, embedded video, social networking interaction, or anonymous data analysis, for example.

If you wish to reject third party cookies, you should be able to modify your browser settings to decline them. You could also visit the relevant third party's website directly to manage cookies placed on your machine by them.

If you want to reject interest-based advertising cookies placed on your computer or device, you can opt-out of receiving these cookies at any time by going to optout.networkadvertising.org or youronlinechoices.com and submitting an opt-out for the advertiser concerned.

Google offer a plugin to disable Google ad personalisation. This can be downloaded from their website. You can also disable personalisation in your Google Account settings, if you have a Google Account.

However, these opt-out mechanisms normally use cookies themselves, so if you clear the cookies from your browser, your opt-out will not be maintained.
